This is a basic muffin recipe that you can mix in any fruit.

This is my mom's recipe from her days working at a railroad camp as a cook. She was a young girl who traveled many miles from Chicago; alone, to work at Camp 28 in northern Wisconsin. While working here she met her husband and raised her 8 children in this small Wisconsin town.
These were hard times for many people, ingredients were hard to come by.

She also threw in blueberries when she had them. It was a special treat when orange extract became available.
