If you save your own recipe to your Favourites list, then you can add it as an ingredient to a new recipe from the drop-down "or choose a favorite" menu on the Recipes site (directly below the search bar).
To save it to your Favourites, you can do so from your Nutrition Tracker (use the Recipes tab, find your muffins, add them to a random meal, and check off the "add to favorites" button --- you can then just delete them from the random meal) or from the Recipes site (from the main page of your muffin recipe, choose "add to tracker" and go thru the process of adding it to a random meal, check off the "add to favorites" button, and then delete them from the Nutrition Tracker later).
I make a lot of my own base ingredients (yoghurt, bread, pizza base, apple butter, etc.), so use this trick all the time.
Kudos on finding a great way to use up the stale muffins!
Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."
You can accomplish what you are wanting by opening your muffin recipe and clicking the button to create a makeover. That will pull in the original recipe and then you can add the additional ingredients and change its name.
I hope this helps!

I made some chocolate muffins and didn't get through them before they got stale. So I made bread pudding out of them.
I'd like to use the Sparkrecipes to calculate the nutrition, but the muffin recipe is unique so I'd want to use my own (shared) muffin recipe as an ingredient for the bread pudding recipe. But when I enter "chocolate zucchini muffins" as an ingredient I just get two generic zucchini muffin entries. Is there any way around this, or am I stuck with a generic bread pudding recipe for my food tracker?
