I’m Team Vanilla all the way, whether it’s ice cream, cheesecake, cake, vanilla is always my first choice.  So when I learned that Coffee-mate used their flavor expertise to develop two distinctive and exceptional vanilla experiences, including a new Classic Vanilla variety, I was excited to give it a try.  And since I discovered how well coffee creamer works in recipes (see here and here), I could not way to make something tasty using Coffee-mate’s Classic Vanilla.

To achieve the extra vanilla flavor in these muffins, I used a generous amount of vanilla extract as well as Coffee-mate’s Classic Vanilla creamer in place of some of the milk in the recipe.  The rest of the recipe is simple and classic…much like the taste of vanilla in these Classic Vanilla Muffins!
