My husband was in charge of coffee hour at school last week and we decided to make tons of muffins.  Here are our favorite recipes from the event:  (All from one of my favorite blogs Get off Your Butt and Bake.)

Buttermilk Bran Muffins

Brown Sugar Crumble Banana Muffins



Definitely try her idea of adding orange rind to the butter to make orangey monkey bread.  It was so good!  I used my recipe for monkey bread dough though:

Monkey Bread 
First boil together:

2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup water

When butter is melted take off the heat and place in the bowl you will be using to mix for it to cool completely.

Meanwhile dissolve 2 Tbsp. yeast into a cup of warm water. Let that sit for 10 minutes.

When the butter mixture is cool add the yeast, 2 beaten eggs, and six cups of flour.

Beat together until it is a uniform ball and place in the fridge for four hours.
