Growing up my mom would often make muffins. Not from the bag, from scratch. We’d have oatmeal, bran, chocolate chip, fruit, strudel . . . you name it. As I matured and started my own family the desire to make my own muffins for my girls began – but what recipe??? I looked at different recipe books, searched online and was a little overwhelmed by the number of different ones out there. So I went back to mom and she shared this amazing secret – she always used this basic muffin mix and just added to it. Let me tell you, it changed everything and I am super excited to share it with you!
Basic Muffin Mix
1 cup Self Rising Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 cup Milk
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 tsp Vanilla
Stir dry ingredients together. (If adding chocolate chips or blueberries, stir into dry ingredients)
Mix Wet ingredients together and stir into dry, until just moistened.
Pour into muffin cups. Bake @ 400 degrees F for about 12-15 mins.
Additions: (this is where the fun begins!)
1/4 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Blueberries, Strawberries, etc
2 Tbs Amaretto and 1/4 cup toasted chopped Almonds
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder and 1/4 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
**the sky is really the limit**
Of course, my Fresh Product Pick for my measuring cups to my mixing bowl is Tupperware and you can get yours here!
Have fun and comment which additions you like best!
