Thermomix Basic Muffin Recipe | Plus Suggested Variations

I have to say that I love making muffins in my Thermomix! And to be honest, I virtually always use this Thermomix basic muffin recipe. It’s so versatile and you can add any flavourings you like. A few of my faves are:

  • raspberry and white chocolate chunks
  • chocolate chip
  • stewed apple and cinnamon
  • blueberry
  • tinned peaches
  • chopped dates and pecans
  • strawberry and a sprinkle of coconut
  • raisins

The trick to getting your muffins perfect is to not over-mix them. Over-mixing will lead to dense muffins (and no-one wants that!!). I also love to sprinkle a little bit of raw sugar over the muffins just before baking as it gives them a gorgeous crunch when cooked. Totally optional – but seriously yum!!

I love eating these muffins plain and simple on their own, but you can always add a cream cheese frosting, a sprinkle of icing sugar or even a dollop of yogurt on the side.

      Hi Hilary, it really depends on how ‘packed’ or ‘sparse’ you like your muffins to be. You really can’t go wrong! Make sure you’ve got more mixture than add-ins of course though!!

  1. I’ve used this recipe all month for blueberry muffins. Don’t have or use self rising flour, so used online tip. I add 1 tablespoon baking powder and one teaspoon salt to the normal flour before I pulse. Recipe has worked great every time. Thanks.
