What is a Muffin?

Is it a cake? Is it a coffee cake? Is it a cupcake?

The truth is, a muffin is pretty much all of those things rolled into one.

A traditional muffin has the density of a coffee cake but it’s baked up in a muffin tin, the same size and shape of a tradition cupcake.

These days, fancy muffins in coffee shops are baked in extra-large muffin tins, so you get quite a mouthful! No matter how you choose to bake up the recipes you’ll find in the list below, every one is delicious and worthy of a try!

Muffins in the Fall

In my Fall Themed Cakes post I covered the many flavors of fall. And in my Fall Cookie Bakes post I took it a step further, sharing literally dozens of fall-themed cookies.

I did a full roundup of Fall Festival treats, featuring recipes from other bloggers.

And of course I’ve got my master list of Favorite Fall Desserts, which features all of the textures and flavors of the fall season.

You will find many of those same flavors in these muffins. There’s a strong cinnamon theme, because that happens to be a personal favorite. But I’ve got plenty of other autumn inspired muffins, as well!

These muffins are listed in alphabetical order. And you’ll notice I’ve added some coffee cake recipes, as well. That’s because all of them can be baked up in muffin form.

I hope you’re hungry for muffins. Here goes!
