The book is beautifully formatted, with easy to read recipes. The measurements are based on cups, not weights. There are beautiful color photos, but not of everything. They are intended to be gourmet, so a few of the ingredients in a few of the recipes might not be in your pantry.
Here are the sections of the book and some of the many muffins I could not wait to try:
Uniquely Sweet Creations
Dark Chocolate Orange Zest Muffins
Double Shot Espresso Muffins
Gingerbread Crumble Muffins
Peppermint White Chocolate Muffins
Hearty Fruits, Nuts, and Oats
Peach Pecan Streusel Muffins
Almond Coconut Muffins
Blueberry Ricotta Streusel Muffins
Raspberry Lemon Muffins
Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner Muffins
Huevos Rancheros Muffins
Queso Blanco Corn Muffins
Rosemary Olive Oil Muffins
Feta and Herb Muffins
Savory, Spicy, and a Little Sweet
Chipotle Swirl Corn Muffins
Parma Ham and Apricot Muffins
Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Spice Muffins
Smoked Gouda Cayenne Corn Muffins
Chipotle Cream Cheese
Smoky Cayenne Butter
Blue Cheese Walnut Spread
Crumbles and Glazes
Oat and Pecan Crumble
Cinnamon Pecabn Streusel
* Eggs - assume size "large" unless otherwise stated; shell color does not matter
* Muffin Tin size - author mentions "regular" or "standard". Each muffin section should hold about 3 ounces of water when filled. (But you never want to actually fill the tin.)
* When filling muffin tins, fill only 2/3 full.
Moufflet by Kelly Jaggers is being published at an opportune time for me. In my active quest to reduce portion sizes, I have vowed to discover tasty yet interesting recipes. I immediately flagged about a dozen recipes on first glance alone, and now my copy of the book looks like it is sporting a paper Mohawk.
I particularly like that Jaggers includes a substantial amount of savory recipes, along with a separate section for toppings. For instance, one chapter focuses on spreads and butters (Smoky Cayenne Butter, Chorizo Cheddar Cream Cheese, Candied Jalapeno Spread), and another chapter is for crumbles, streusels, drizzles, and glazes (Limoncello Glaze, Parmesan Crumble, Smoked Paprika Bacon Crumble).
Following are some recipes worth mentioning, with my actual test results at the end. I will keep updating this review with my comments and results like I usually do.
* Cherry Mahlab Muffins
* Herbed Cornbread Stuffing Muffins
* Blueberry Ricotta Streusel Muffins
* Bell Pepper and Cheddar Corn Muffins
* Goat Cheese and Leek Muffins
* Huevos Rancheros Muffins
* Sausage and Cranberry Stuffing Muffins
* Caramelized Onion and Bacon Muffins
* Mozzarella Stuffed Meatloaf Muffins
* King Ranch Chicken Muffins
-- Quiche Lorraine Muffins -- (12/31/2012) - Great flavor, but difficult to evenly divide ingredients across 16 muffins. (Who makes 16 muffins??!!) Plus, the bottoms of my muffins stuck to the Crisco-ed pan, leaving behind all the yummy savory bits. (I chose not to go with the muffin tin liner option, as I wanted nice browning, which I DID get, but now we are eating the bottoms out of the pan with a fork ...) The batter bakes up rather like a popover - much drier than a usual quiche base. Because the batter was so thick, I used an electric mixer instead of the recommended whisk. The muffin tops rise up a LOT in the oven, then collapse, so definitely don't worry if your muffin tins seem under-filled. Certainly a repeat recipe, but next time with liners or more grease.
-- Cafe Mocha Muffins -- (1/3/2013) - Chocolaty but not too sweet. I can't really tell there is coffee in there, but it does contribute to overall dark flavor and color. Author recommends blending batter with only 13 strokes total, but I had to use about 20 and still ended up with a moist muffin. A wee bit plain; could benefit from a drizzle on top, although not specified. I will make these again for company, but with a topping.
-- Mocha Glaze -- (1/3/2013) - Outstanding! Super simple, great texture. Rather sweet and the butter makes it rich. I tried it on the Café Mocha Muffins I made earlier in the day, and I think the two together are just a bit too much. But this glaze recipe is a keeper - I just need to find the right contrasting muffin for it. Totally outstanding.
-- Cornmeal Buttermilk Muffins (1/8/2013) - Very nice texture, not very sweet at all. I personally like a sweeter cornmeal muffin, so next time I will add white sugar. (The recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of honey per 12 muffins.)
