More Maximizing of Kitchen Efforts to Make Life Easier (Breakfast)

Yesterday I shared my botched attempt at quadrupling a dinner making session. While it didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped, I did end up with more bang for my buck at the end of the night.

What did go just as smoothly as I'd hoped this week was my effort to get ahead in breakfast making. We LOVE muffins around here. On Saturday night I made a double batch of apple cinnamon muffin batter. The recipe was already a large one (as it makes 16 muffins), so I figured doubling it would really make it stretch.

Every morning (Sunday-Wednesday) I've filled my muffin tin first thing and baked a batch. We eat 4-6 of them between both of our breakfasts and morning snacks, and whatever is left on the counter afterwards has gone into a bag in my freezer.

This has been nice on several levels. Who doesn't like to start the day with a delicious baked good fresh out of the oven? And on top of that, I have a full bag of the tasty morsels in my freezer to pull out as needed in the weeks to come. This was a very successful multitasking kitchen endeavor :).

Feel inspired? Give it a shot! On a quiet evening, double or triple the batter for a favorite baked good. Then bake a little every morning for fresh deliciousness, and freeze your extras. I will definitely be repeating this exercise!

How do you simplify breakfast in your home?
