Recipe – Making Muffins

Muffins are a sweet treat to go along with coffee or hot apple cider. Try mixing in cinnamon & apple or pumpkin & pecan for fall flavors. Recipe makes 12 standard muffins or 24 mini muffins. 
  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1-1/2 cups of mix-ins such as berries, diced fruit, chocolate chips or chopped nuts
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F.
  2. Lightly grease the cups of a standard 12-cup muffin pan. Or line the cups with papers, and grease the papers.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients — flour, sugar, salt and baking powder — until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the liquid ingredients together — milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla — until smooth.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Use a rubber spatula to gently mix the ingredients together (a few lumps are ok, just no big patches of dry or wet ingredients).
  6. Fold in any mix-ins such as berries, fruit or chocolate chips.
  7. Fill the cups of the muffin pan two-thirds to three-quarters full. Sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
  8. Bake the muffins for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of one of the center muffins comes out clean.
  9. Remove them from the oven, and as soon as you can handle them turn them out of the pan onto a rack to cool.
  10. Enjoy!!
