Martha White Muffin Mix
Since 1899 Martha White has been a trusted name in Southern kitchens, providing folk with the highest quality products. Martha White has been a trusted name in MY kitchen since 2016 when I discovered the mixes in Walmart in the USA. I popped some in my trolley and brought them back to the UK with me, my cousin kindly sends me a few through the post to keep my cupboard stocked.
There are a lot off different flavours and varieties, including Gluten Free mixes and Whole Grain Muffins. I like the everyday varieties which only require 1/2 a cup of milk to mix them up.
They are simple to make, just tip the contents into a dry mixing bowl, add the milk and mix throughly. I prefer to use my electric whisk to make sure the mixture is creamy and lump free.
Each pack makes on average 6 large muffins or 10-12 smaller cupcakes.
You have to bake them for 12-14 minutes or until browning, I normally keep putting them back in until a toothpick inserted in the top comes out clean. It all depends on how big you have filled your muffins with muffin mix.
Each pack is a different flavour I have tried Chocolate Chocolate Chip, (White sponge) Chocolate Chip, Strawberry, Blueberry, Apple Cider, Apple Cinnamon, Wild Berry, Blueberry Cheesecake and Lemon Poppy seed.
The only version that I haven't liked so far has been the Lemon poppy seed, mainly because I don't like poppy seeds because they get stuck in your teeth. My favourite has been the Blueberry Cheesecake as they tasted like blueberry but had a slightly sour cheesecake taste. These were lovely warm!
In the USA they eat them warm with butter, I have tried this and it is ok. However in the UK we usually eat them warm or cool just as they are, or sometimes with a swirl of buttercream icing.
On average per pack each serving (muffin) is around 160 calories. Quite high but as a treat and as part of a balanced diet I can't see an issue. All packs state that they are a good source of Calcium with 5 vitamins and iron.
Most packs state that they contain Egg and Wheat. They may contain Milk (well they definitely will once you add in the 1/2 cup milk) and soybean ingredients. So avoid them if you have any allergies with any of the ingredients.
