When I think about some of my favorite brunches they all have one thing in mind. Lovely weather! Not too hot, not too cold, usually outdoor dining with a gentle breeze. What better time for perfect brunch weather than April!? Spring is here, the scents of flowers are in the air, and the sunshine provides just enough warmth without making us scramble for shade.
With 11 weekends left to celebrate spring, I’ve gathered together 11 of my favorite recipes for muffins. These muffins vary from sweet to savory and are perfect served alongside almost any brunch menu or even served on their own. All of these recipes are classic muffins, meaning they use chemical leaveners like baking powder or baking soda instead of yeast. This means no waiting for the dough to rise!
Mix the muffins up according to directions given on each link. For most of these muffins, it only takes about 30 minutes (give or take) before you have delicious muffins ready to go. Bonus: muffins always go great with champagne!! Perfect for your spring brunch get together.
