Here is a recipe for a delicious basic muffin to accompany any meal. This is my go to muffin when I am looking for one I can make right out of my cupboard with basic ingredients and serve warm with a little butter. A Tbs. of orange zest and 1 cup fresh halved cranberries can be added for variation Yum !
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1+1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 level tsps. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottom of 12 medium muffin cups. Beat egg; stir in milk and oil. Mix in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened. Batter may be lumpy but if you over beat they will peak to a point.
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full and bake about 18 to 20 minutes until light golden brown. Remove from pan and serve. Makes 12 muffins
