Homemade Muffins

There is nothing quite like a warm homemade muffin for breakfast.

Or lunch. Or snack. Or dinner. Any time of the day, really. And, once you get the basic recipe down, making all different kinds of muffins is as simple as changing up the add-ins you put in there!

Here’s the basic recipe for homemade muffins.

Begin by whisking together in a bowl the following ingredients. You can also triple or quadruple the recipe and store in a glass container, using 2 1/4 cups of the mix each time.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Then, in another bowl, mix together:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 stick melted butter, or 1/2 cup oil

Mix the wet ingredients together, then dump gently into the dry.

Mix until just wet. The batter will be lumpy! Pour about 1/4 cup into each spot of a well greased muffin pan, or line the pan with muffin papers. Bake at 400 for about 17-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean. **Here’s your little tip for the day…when you remove the muffins from the oven, turn them in the pan on their side. That will let the steam and heat escape from the bottom of the pan and your muffins won’t end up soggy**

Now, that’s a basic muffin! To mix it up, use some of these delicious add-ins

Add 1/2 cup dried cherries, apricots, or cranberries.

Add 1 cup of your favorite flavor jam

Add 1/2 cup raisins and replace the milk with sour cream.

Add 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, and omit the sugar.

Add 3 Tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, dill, oregano, or thyme.

What combinations can you come up with?

    I love this recipe—so easy to whip up at the last minute. And my pickiest
    eaters love the addition to their meal. I skip the sugar and instead add grated sharp cheese. Yummy!
