A muffin digression

Strawberry-banana muffins are a new favorite recipe at the Times House.

While most Times House News posts revolve around what’s happening in and around Jim Thorpe, I just had to share a delicious new recipe find that I came across while searching for something to bake for guests with a dietary restriction – no eggs.

I once assumed that substitutions in a baked goods recipe meant not only flavor but texture would somehow be lacking compared to the “real thing.” Our guests were coming all the way from Japan and I didn’t want to serve them anything less than delicious.

Well you know what they say about assuming.

I was so excited when I found this recipe for strawberry banana muffins on egglesscooking.com and read reviews promising a light fluffy muffin instead of my imaginings of a “health food” version of something delicious. Plain yogurt took the place of eggs and I increased the brown sugar from 3/4 to 1 cup as recommended by reviewers. I was so blown away by the final product that I took a picture of it to share.

Now the eggless-strawberry-banana muffins have joined my less-healthful scones, peach and apple cakes as part of my revolving breakfast menu. I baked the muffins yesterday and had guests make a point of telling me how much they enjoyed them.

I encourage all bakers out there to expand their thinking when it comes to traditional ingredients and I highly recommend egglesscooking.com
for their strawberry-banana muffins and other recipes.

  1. Great recipe; It’s good to know that yogurt could replace eggs in a muffin recipe. The addition of extra brown sugar surely added to a sweeter taste. I will be sure to visit egglesscooking.com for more recipes to try when I am out of eggs yet still feel like baking something delicious. My name is Marc, and aside from being an amateur baker, I also work for Bescover — where we love all things B&B! It’s truly a privilege being a part of your online community.

  2. Haha , funny story; last night my girlfriend jokingly told me to tell her something she didn’t already know, and the first thing I could think of was to tell her that yogurt could replace eggs in a muffin…she then looked at me strangely. I had to explain that I ran across this cool recipe, which she now wants me to create so she can judge for herself. It’s gonna be a busy weekend of proving my point.
