Happy 4th of July!
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease bottoms of muffin tin only of about 12 medium muffin cups, 2-1/2 x 1-1/4 inches. Beat egg; stir in milk and oil. Stir in remaining ingredients all at once just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy). Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full. Bake unti gold brown, about 20 minutes. Immediately remove from pan. About 1 dozen muffins.
For blueberry muffins: Stir in 1 cup fresh or 3/4 cup frozen blueberries (thawed and well drained) with the milk
For surprise muffins: Fill muffin cups about half full. Spoon 1 teaspoon strawberry jam (or jam/jelly of choice) onto batter in each cup; top with enough to fill cups about 3/4 full.
I gave you the standard muffin recipe and you can make it your own. It is not overly sweet and the muffins are a normal size, not too large. Hope you have a great 4th! It is going to be a very hot one today! I think they call it a firecracker! Appropriate! Talk to you later!
