Christmas Day Muffins from Tanusree at Ma Niche

Today I’m pleased to welcome another holiday guest! Tanusree of Ma Niche is here to share some Christmas Day Muffins! Add this recipe to your Christmas breakfast or brunch menu, and I’m sure it will be a crowd pleaser!

Hello everyone ! I am Tanusree from the blog  Ma Niche, where I share my culinary adventures and sometimes easy diy projects. I love everything baked and everything Mediterranean and that is pretty evident from my blog.  Being from India where a big percentage of the population is vegetarian I often try to bake my cakes, cookies and breads without eggs, and today I am delighted to be here to share my eggless Christmas Day Muffins with you. I have baked these using whole wheat flour so they are slightly dense. However if you prefer fluffier ones just substitute the whole wheat flour with an equal measure of all-purpose flour and you’ll be good to go.

15 Muffin Recipes

In my neck of the woods, school is starting back next week. (Where did the summer go, right?) So when it comes time for the back to school season, I always like to post about breakfast ideas, because you know, it’s a new school year, and everyone is energized and wants to start out the year on a good note, with hot, yummy breakfasts, before sliding back into good ol’ quick & easy cereal. (hehe)

So for this week, I decided to do a round up of muffin recipes, because muffins are so versatile.  You could come up with literally a million different flavors.  They’re also great for a make ahead breakfast; they’re great for a grab-and-go breakfast, and they’re also make after school snacks and even desserts! Hope you enjoy! [Read more…]
