How to Save 237 dollars per year with one muffin recipe

I used my "go to" muffin recipe for these tasty little treats.  This is a great base for almost any muffin variation but, I particularly love it with jam. Muffins with coffee? No brainer, always a perfect combo! In addition to pairing incredibly well with coffee and tea, Raspberry Jam Muffins are easy to make, taste amazing and the best part is...this entire recipe cost under $2.00 to make! Each muffin costs about .20 plus somewhere around .55 for a K-cup coffee = way cheaper than a stop at your local coffee shop! As a matter of fact if use this recipe and brew yourself fresh K-cup coffee at home vs. buying at Starbucks just once a week according to my estimates you will save $237. in one year!

Without further ado I give you, Homemade Raspberry Jam Muffins...

You will need:

2 C flour

1 T baking powder

1 t salt

1/4 C sugar

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 C milk

1 stick (8 T) of melted butter

1 t vanilla extract

seedless raspberry jam

*makes 12 muffins

Simple Raspberry Jam Muffins- Start by heating the oven to 400 degrease and greasing a muffin pan.

- Stir all of the dry ingredients in a medium size bowl.  

- Combine the eggs, milk and vanilla in a separate bowl.

- Slowly stir the melted butter into the egg, milk and vanilla combination.

- Now stir the wet ingredients into the dry until incorporated (there should still be lumps).

- Fill the muffin tins 1/3 of the way, add a generous teaspoon of seedless raspberry jam, top with batter.

- Bake in oven for about 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.

- Remove from oven and serve warm

I like to add a drizzle of royal icing to my muffins, just for a little extra sweetness. To do this simply combine 4 T powdered sugar with a dash of milk, a dash of vanilla extract and stir. Drizzle your desired amount on to the tops of the muffins. 

Now, the big question...which Keurig K-cup to enjoy with your freshly baked Raspberry Jam Muffin.  Raspberry pairs incredibly well with two things- vanilla and lemon.  If you are team vanilla I would recommend sipping a gourmet cup of Folgers Vanilla Biscotti K-cup coffee to make this indulgence complete. For the lemon lovers try a nice hot cup of Lemon Zinger Herbal K-cup tea by Celestial Seasonings. 

Which would you choose to pair with this muffin?  Team vanilla or team lemon?
