Basic Muffins

Ingredients :

· 2 cups all-purpose flour
· 1/3 cup sugar
· 1 tbsp. baking powder
· 1/2 tsp. salt
· 1 egg, at room temperature
· 1 cup milk
· 1/4 cup butter, melted (or 3 tbsps. vegetable oil)

(Kitchen Measurements)

Cooking Procedures :

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a medium muffin tin by brushing/spraying with oil or lining with muffin paper. Set aside.

2. In a bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt and stir to blend well. Set aside.

3. In another bowl, beat the egg with the milk and melted butter.

4. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined into a lumpy batter (just until moistened), being careful not to over mix. Some of the flour may still remain visible. Over mixed batter will result a tough muffins.

5. Spoon batter evenly into prepared muffin tins about 2/3 full.

6. Put in the middle rack of oven.

7. Bake until golden, and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, for about 20-22 minutes.

Helpful Tips
– Save on preparation time. Sift flour right into a storage canister to have on hand for recipes that require sifted flour.

– To ensure round muffin tops, grease only the bottom and halfway up the sides of each muffin cup.
