Happy Autumn

Welcome Fall and a Happy Weekend. I love this time of year and the start of cooler temps and sweater weather. It brings me to revisit a long ago post from 2007 sharing a yummy muffin recipe from one of my many cook books inherited from my mother. I am sharing it again because the muffins are that good and I hope you will be inspired to try them. Enjoy~ One of the things I collect are cook books and this 1948 Watkins book was my mothers when she got married. She was a very accomplished cook and baker, so this book has been lovingly enjoyed over and over. The other day, I was looking for a muffin recipe and found this one for muffins that I changed a bit by adding little bits of apple. They turned out so yummy and I thought you might like to share in the recipe by seeing the ingredients from the original book and the variations you can make. Perfect for a cool fall day.

Thank you for stopping by and also for the comments you are so kind to leave. I enjoy all your visits and will see you soon. Happy Autumn! Hugs, Celestina Marie

Your muffins look so yummy. It is definitely a fall day here and a good day for baking. It's fun to look through old cookbooks. I haven't seen a Watkins one before.
Happy Fall and Happy Weekend.

Sounds wonderful and the muffins look delicious!! I know it's officially Fall, but the weather here hasn't been informed. We're still in the 100's, supposed to cool to the 90's next week YAY!!
Can't wait for cooler temps to feel like it's time to bake : )

Those muffins look yummy Celeste, however I am not to be tempted today ... I'll be taking taking a long walk instead ... I have been trying desperately to loose a little of my winter weight. :) Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Happy Autumn to you dear Celestina Marie.
The old cook books are the best and I have a few lovely old ones, belonging to my Mother.
Muffins are wonderful if you want to whip something up in a hurry.
Thanks for sharing the recipe, yours look good.
