Product description

From Publishers Weekly

Like the low-fat muffins starring in these sure-to-please 60-plus recipes, this collection packs a lot of flavor in a palm-sized package. Ojakangas (Quick Breads Light Desserts) begins with a short course in technique (mix batter "just until the dry ingredients are moistened") and an explanation of how she reduced fat content to 30% or less while maintaining the characteristic flavor and tenderness of muffins (e.g., increasing amount of liquid, shortening baking time, raising oven temperature). Included among such traditional offerings as Breakfast Apple Muffins (with oatmeal, diced Granny Smith apple, currants and spices) and Orange-Cranberry Muffins, are slightly more elegant variations: Hazelnut-Pear, with lemon zest and nut oil, and Hot Cross Muffins, calling for cake flour and nonfat yogurt. Savory muffins include those made with sun-dried tomatoes and spinach and Dilly Cheese Muffins, made moist with nonfat cottage cheese. The chapter Dessert Muffins includes Chocolate Spice-Zucchini, using cocoa powder, nonfat buttermilk and nut oil. Recipes for fat-free muffins, most made with fruit purees, and spreads are included in this reliable, tempting collection.

From Booklist

In the hands of this master baker, muffin making virtually becomes an art form. Ojakangas' cornucopia of low-fat recipes reflects the ever increasing demand for more healthful fare. It also reflects the research and development that went into reworking or converting formulations from a popular earlier book, Muffins, in order to maintain taste and moistness while reducing or substituting certain ingredients. Among the more than 60 delectable recipes are such innovative treats as sun-dried tomato and spinach muffins and both savory and fruit spreads to enhance the baked goodies. Includes nutritional information for each offering. Alice Joyce
