ARE CHEESE MUFFINS QUICK BREAD?

Most likely yes. Quick breads are made with a chemical leavening agent, like baking powder or soda, rather than a biological one, like yeast or sourdough starter. This easy cheese muffin recipe is made with self rising flour, which contains baking powder.

I have never seen a muffin recipe made with yeast or a sourdough starter, but that’s just me.

EASY MUFFINS WITHOUT EGGS

You might have noticed this recipe is a quick bread recipe with no eggs and that’s absolutely ok.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU DON’T PUT EGGS IN BREAD?

Without eggs or egg substitutes, baked goods made with flour will be a little more delicate. It depends on what the other ingredients are. In this case, these muffins are delicate, but not the least bit dry.

WILL MUFFINS RISE WITHOUT EGGS OR AN EGG SUBSTITUTE?

Egg proteins provide the framework for the muffin. Without the eggs or egg substitutes, the leaveners in the recipe will be unable to form a soft, airy crumb.

These egg free cheese muffins hardly rise and don’t have a soft airy crumb. However, they do have a nice, lovely texture that is not dry. The fat provided by the butter, sour cream and cheese prevent dryness.

HOW TO STORE MINI CHEESE MUFFINS AFTER BAKING

With a paper towel, line an airtight container or zip-lock bag. Insert the muffins in a single layer and store. The muffins are more likely to become soggy if they are stored without a paper towel. Muffins will store up to 4 days this way.

HOW TO STORE MINI MUFFINS IN FREEZER

  • Cool completely
  • Tightly wrap in plastic wrap or aluminum foil
  • Place in freezer bag or airtight container and seal.
  • Muffins freeze well up to 3 months.
