The humble muffin got its name in 1703 when a printed publication listed it as a 'moofin'. The name 'muffin' comes from the French word 'moufflet' meaning 'soft' when referring to bread.
Today, muffins come in many tasty varieties and are a great way to enjoy a sweet treat throughout the day. Muffin mix isn't just for making muffins, with a few changes to the base of the muffin mix, you can create cookies, cakes, shakes, and even muffin mix waffles.

Muffin Mix Waffles62% of people prefer golden waffles over pancakes. If you're looking to make delicious waffles at home but don't have any waffle mix handy, using muffin mix for waffles is your best bet. Just a few alterations to the muffin mix will give you tasty muffin mix waffles.
As with pancakes and muffins themselves, the flavor varieties for your waffles can also be numerous. You could make muffin mix waffles from chocolate chip muffin mix, strawberry muffin mix, blueberry muffin mix, and more. You're only limited by your imagination.
For any muffin mix waffle flavors you wish to make, you'll want to warm up your waffle iron and spray it with non-stick butter to keep the waffles from sticking.
To make muffin mix waffles, combine 2 cups of muffin mix with 1 cup of water, 1 egg, and 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. You can also substitute the water for milk and add fresh blueberries to the mix if desired.
Stir the mixture well and then pour enough to fill the space inside your waffle maker. Close the lid and wait for the light to go off on your waffle maker to signify that they are done. Check to see that your muffin mix waffle is golden brown and not soggy.
Repeat with the remaining batter in the bowl. Serve them warm with butter and syrup, jam, fresh fruit, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, powdered sugar, or cinnamon sugar. Then enjoy!
Muffin Mix Cookies
Muffin mix cookies are the best way to create a cookie with the moist denseness of a muffin and the portability of a cookie.
If desired, use fresh blueberries to add an extra bite of sweetness to your muffin cookies; we recommend washing your blueberries and coating them in a layer of white sugar. If you want a sweeter richer flavor, add 1½ tsp of vanilla extract in with the egg and butter.
When the batter has been mixed well enough, take a tablespoon and drop rounded dough (about 2 tbsp each) onto a non-stick tray or one lined with parchment paper.
Bake the muffin cookies at 350º for 13-15 minutes until the edges turn golden brown. Let the tray cool for a few minutes before removing the muffin mix cookies to a cooling rack.
Muffin Mix Cake
Making a muffin cake is a quick and easy dessert alternative to make with muffin mix. The ingredients you need are already things you'll likely have in your pantry, and it makes a delicious cake that is to-die-for (seriously, everyone will be wondering where you got it from).
Muffins already have a deliciously cake-like texture to them, so when you're in a pinch for something sweet, a muffin mix cake is just the thing. You'll need to bake it for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Try a raspberry muffin mix cake topped with fresh raspberries. Or a chocolate chip muffin mix cake with decadent chocolate frosting. You can even make a lemon muffin mix cake topped with a tangy lemon drizzle. Whether you prefer sweet or savory, grab a mix and bake up something special!
To really up your muffin mix cake game, you could make a two-layer cake from muffin mix and fill it with some kind of pie filling or jam to give it an explosion of flavor in the middle.
Top it with nuts, dried fruit, or powdered sugar. Or frost the cake with cream cheese icing. It makes a great dessert or a morning pick-me-up with coffee.
To make your White Chocolate Blueberry Muffin Bundt Cake, combine 2 1/2 cups of muffin mix, 3/4 cup of sugar, and 3/4 cup of vegetable oil with 3/4 cup of water, 4 eggs, 1 cup of sour cream, 1 box of instant white chocolate pudding, and a handful of fresh blueberries.
Grease and flour your bundt and bake in a preheated 350F oven for 50 minutes. We recommend letting it cool before removing from the pan. Top with the frosting of your choice and enjoy!
Muffin Mix Shake or Smoothies
For thick and textured shakes bursting with sweet flavor, using a muffin mix will give you a tasty treat in just minutes.
Bake the muffins according to the directions on the package. When they are out of the oven and cooled down, break the muffins into pieces and crumble them up or use a blender to break them up.
In a blender, combine the muffin bits, ice, milk, frozen yogurt (vanilla flavored is preferred) and frozen mixed berries. Blend all of the ingredients together until you have a thick mixture with no large clumps. If the mixture is too thick, you can always thin it out a little more with ⅓ cup of milk.
Before pouring in your shake or smoothing, add a muffin crumble around the edge of the glass. Top your smoothie with some additional crumble and whipped cream and enjoy!
Add fresh banana to a banana nut muffin mix for a shake that is rich in banana-flavored goodness. Make mixed berry shakes with chunks of baked mixed berry muffins and frozen or fresh assorted berries.
