Yummy Yammy Muffins

Everyone at the Thanksgiving breakfast table will be thanking you for these yummy, yammy muffins.

What You'll Need:

  • 4 tablespoons sweet butter
  • 1 cup canned yams
  • 1-3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons sweet butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Saucepan
  • Fork
  • Mixing bowl
  • Muffin tin and cups
  • Honey or jam

These muffins are a snap to make. Have an adult preheat the oven to 350 degrees and melt the butter over low heat. Mash the yams in a bowl. Combine all the ingredients, and mix well.

Pour the batter into muffin cups in a muffin tin. Bake for about twenty minutes. Let cool a little before serving with honey or jam. Breakfast has never been so yummy, or so yammy.

Pilgrims spent the first Thanksgiving with Native American friends. You can bring that spirit to the holiday table with the next craft.
