Muffins are my favorites for a quick breakfast. Nothing is better then a warm muffin for breakfast during a hectic weekend.

Before sharing my recipe for the saffron pistachio muffin, I would like to share my recipe for a basic muffin. This can be had as in or can be topped with variety of flavors and nuts to add another dimension.

  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


Mix all the ingredients and filling the cups to 2/3rd. Bake at 375°F for 20-25 mins. (use 15 mins for June).

For the Saffron Pistachio muffin add the following as well:

  • 1/4 cup sugar.
  • 1/2 cup chopped pistachios
  • 1tsp cardamom powder
  • 1tsp soaked saffron in warm milk.

After filling the cups, sprinkle with some chopped pistachios. you can prepare a glaze by mixing some powder sugar and water and pouring over the muffin.
