My mom made these for us for a treat, usually on a Saturday or a Sunday morning. I loved them; and they're not like todays muffins that are really cake. These are absolutely delishous and very good with eggs and bacon or just with a cup of cocoa. I make them for my kids now...and when I am a stay at home mom, I make them in the mornings before they go to school or work. We all love 'em!

  • 2Beat egg, stir in milk and oil. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients, and make a well in the center.
  • 3Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir well just until moistened. Batter should be lumpy.
