It actually sounds like your oven is failing as it should have done SOMETHING...after that much cooking time I would think you'd have a brick..
This is the recipe I like, it's a little different and works great. The combination of baking soda and vinegar makes it bubbly and the resulting muffin fluffy..
In a bowl:.
1 pkg Oatmeal mix.
1/4 tea baking SODA (Box).
1/8 tea baking POWDER (Can).
Splenda to taste.
Spices to taste (Dry only).
In a 1 cup measure:.
1/3 cup water.
1 tea white vinegar.
1 tea vanilla (or to taste, or other liquid flavor).
Have a mini bread pan sprayed and ready to go. The oven should be preheated to 350..
You MUST have everything ready to go before you mix the wet and dry as the chemical reaction takes place quickly and we want to trap as many bubbles as possible..
Mix the dry ingredients well, and then mix the wet ones. Pour the wet into the dry and mix up to a smooth batter as quickly as possible. Pour into pan. Bake for 15-16 minutes...
Check the date on the baking powder you used to make sure it hasn't expired.
If it has expired or close to expiration date, that most likely is the why the muffins did not rise. Baking soda also has an expiration date...
I tried making the peach muffins as well a cpl mos ago. They did not turn out right either. I made BB along with them & they were fine. The peach was a big runny mess...
Kim you just may be onto something about the baking powder. I just checked the expiration date and I will not say how many years it is out of date. It is way past shelf life. If it was a child it could drive soon. LOL.
I'll try the muffins again after a trip to the store for new baking powder...
LOL! John...old enough to drive, that's pretty old!!.
Fresh baking powder should do the trick. I typically throw mine out after 6 months and get new powder even if it hasn't expired.
I've tried both recipes above and have equally good results. I also like the muffin recipe that is floating around here somewhere that uses 3 Medifast oatmeal, 1 Medifast pudding, 1 Medifast egg and 1 Medifast shake. Makes 12 very nice muffins; 2 per meal. End up with 6 nice meals to use up over a few days. I store them in the refrigerator and only have to heat up the oven once in awhile. I like baking in bulk!! Gotta find that recipe now!!..
Hi! Did you ever find that recipe? Sounds delish! I was interested in trying it.....
I love this recipe! I have found that adding an egg white or 2 tablespoons of egg beaters helps make these muffins lighter and fluffier. Just subtract 2 Tbls from your water. Also, turning off the oven after 15 minutes and leaving the muffins in an additional 5 minutes really helps...
I couldnt find the original recipe, so I just made up my own and they turn out great all the time. Easy to make and portable. Store extras in the refrigerator. I freeze them too when I make large batches. I love making large batches so I don't have to turn the oven on and heat up the kitchen all the time. Now that warmer weather is here, batch baking is the way to go for me..
Medi-Muffins Makes 12 muffins. 2 muffins per meal..
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Spray muffin tins with Pam or other spray of your choice..
3 packets of Medifast Oatmeal ( I use whatever flavor I have on hand.).
1 packet Medifast scrambled eggs ( can use 1/4 cup egg substitute instead and reduce water below to 1-1/4 cup).
1 packet Medifast vanilla shake.
1 packet Medifast vanilla pudding.
1 T. ground flaxseed.
2 tsp. baking powder.
1 tsp. baking soda.
1 tsp. vanilla.
2 tsp. of another flavor extract of your choice. I vary them such as lemon, orange, banana, almond, vanilla, butter and nut combo, pistachio, coconut, maple, etc..
1-1/2 cup water..
Mix all dry ingredients together well. Measure out liquids in measuring cup, stir in extracts. Then mix wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Divide evenly between 12 muffin cups. Bake for 22-25 minutes, until nice golden brown top. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes and then take out of tin and finish cooling on cooling rack...
~Thanks, I've gotta batch in the oven now and I think I'll try that.
And thank you very much, Kim457!!! I will definitely have to try that recipe as well!..
