Who actually cooks inside a travel trailer oven? I do, ugh, this week I made cinnamon raisin muffins in the tiny travel trailer oven. The recipe was inspired by my Einkorn Blueberry Muffin recipe, but I had no blueberries. These muffins are similar to a cinnamon raisin bread but in a moist cakey muffin.
Cinnamon Raisin Muffin Recipe – RV Living
When cooking in the travel trailer you want to keep it simple. Keeping it simple while not having sandwiches for every meal is sometimes difficult. There isn’t very much storage room to have a mixer and my favorite stone muffin pan. There isn’t much counter top space to have several ingredients out to make the muffins. Fortunately my BOOS butcher block fits nicely on top of the sink for a little more counter top space.
RV Kitchen Tools
I can’t have my stoneware muffin pan in the travel trailer, because there just isn’t room for it. I found the best alternative, reusable silicone cupcake wrappers. They fit nicely in the silverware drawer while not in use, and we can still enjoy cupcakes and muffins while in the trailer. You also need a good measuring/ mixing batter bowl, it is a great multipurpose kitchen tool. I mixed the muffin batter in this 8 cup measuring bowl with a kitchen spoon. Using 2 kitchen spoons I scooped the batter into the reusable cupcake wrappers until 3/4 full.

A few tips and tidbits I learned the hard way….
- Before you get rolling on these delicious muffins, make sure the propane isn’t running too low (in the middle of a storm).
- If your living in Texas, in the summer, these muffins can only be made early in the morning for breakfast because you don’t to heat your house up.
- I also discovered I need an oven thermometer to keep track of my internal oven temp. I don’t think my temperature is correct. The thermometer would also be beneficial when I run out of propane to see what the temp is when I finally notice there is no flame.
