Since I tend to wake up hours earlier than my husband on the weekends, Kay and I often make muffins for his breakfast and for our mid-morning snack. Out of all the muffins we make, these are our favorites.
Right now we are off for Kay's spring break and there is snow all over the ground! She has a terrible cold so I made them this morning to try to cheer her up.
This recipe is actually from my 7th grade cooking class! I've made some minor changes but overall, this is the same recipe.
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners and pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together the egg, oil, and milk. Sift together the sugar, flour, and baking powder and add to the wet ingredients. Mix just until the flour is moistened. The batter should be lumpy. Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes, turning once half way through.
Kay: They are awesome!!!!
Mom: We like to eat these with honey butter. It's just some butter (or in our case, ususally margarine) mixed with a little bit of honey. This recipe makes 12 muffins and the three of us easily finish them off before lunch time!
