How to Make Basic Muffins
Tools - small mixing bowl, large mixing bowl, muffin pan, paper muffin cup liners (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Combine egg, milk, and oil in a small mixing bowl.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt. Use a fork to stir together. Make a well in the center and add the egg mixture all at once. Stir until just moistened. The mixture will be lumpy, do not overmix.
- Grease muffin pan or line with paper muffin cups. Fill the cups to 2/3 full. If you want, you can pour some of the batter into a sturdy plastic zip-close bag, snip one corner at the bottom of the bag and use this to easily fill your muffin cups.
- Bake at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the pan and serve warm. Makes 12.
Cheese Muffins - Stir 1/2 C shredded cheese into the flour mixture.
Bacon and Cheese Muffins - Add 1/2 cooked and drained bacon and 1/2 C shredded cheese to the liquid ingredients.
Chocolate Chip Muffins: Add 1/2 C chocolate chips to the flour mixture
