Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Friendship Muffins

on April 22, 2015

This recipe for Friendship Muffins comes from one of Grandma’s sisters. I love the name, and it seems so appropriate for Grandma and her sisters (and sisters-in-law) who always seemed to be surrounded by friends. They were all friends with each other, too! This recipe makes a bit of a different kind of muffin, one that’s more firm and doesn’t have as much of a tender crumb as regular muffins. The recipe does say that you can make it into a cake instead of muffins, but in a 9″ x 13″ pan, which seems a bit big for this amount of batter, but maybe not. I may have to try that sometime. Once again, this is a very easy, very good recipe.

Friendship Muffins

I love recipes that let you be versatile, like this one. It gives you lots of options.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Friendship Muffins

Mix dry ingredients together:

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Then add:

3/4 cup oil (I used canola)

3 eggs, beaten

2 teaspoons vanilla

Stir well.


1 cup of: chopped apples, dates, raisins, or other dried fruit

1/2 cup nuts, chopped (if desired)

(I used raisins and no nuts in these.)

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes for muffins or 40 minutes for 9″ x 13″ pan.


It has a different order of ingredients on the recipe, but I mixed all the dry ingredients together first, then added the wet ingredients and fruit.


It makes a very thick batter.


I added some sanding sugar to the tops, just to add a bit of sparkle.


These are quick to make, and easy to snack on.


Muffins are always great to have on hand and these are no exception. Make a batch of these today – and make a batch for your friends!
