I haven't tried this yet, but wondering what the 'real' bakers here would think.

I bake for my guests, but I use mixes.  I try to enhance the mix using fresh apples or mashed banana.

Do you think it would work to substitute apple cider for milk in a muffin mix for a Fall flavor?

OR - do you have an apple cider muffin recipe suitable for beginners?

You might think about switching to Krusteaz mixes. They are very high quality and all you do is add water to most of them. I get them at our restaurant supply store (Cash & Carry).

Sometimes I use the mixes when I'm in a hurry and will exchange juices for the water. I use their scone mix and add different dried fruit and/or juices or syrups. One of my guests favorite is mango & white chocolate chip scones. I use a mango smoothie syrup & throw in white choc chips. At that point, the recipe is "a family secret" and I don't tell anyone that I used a mix.

Cool!  Report back.  (I work in the city and only get to be an innkeeper on the weekends.  So I don't have a lot of time to experiment.)

I googled it too.  And it got me thinking that all I had to do was use cider instead of milk in a mix.   Just wondering if anyone had ever tried it.   I know that if you bake often, the soda, flour, two kinds of sugar, vanilla, milk, fruit thing sounds simple, but to me, a mix makes life easier.

You know there are some mixes that call for water instead of milk.  If I were in the experimenting mood, I think I'd start with one of them.  Because there would be extra sweetness from the cider, it could be toned down by adding a little bisquick to the mix.

PS I'm proud that now I experiment.  When I started 6 years ago I was a non-cook who got nervous scrambling eggs. smiley
