Start your morning with an easy muffin recipe. It's a good base and easily adaptable. Add chocolate chips, spices to the batter or dried fruit. Recipe slightly adapted from Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook Bridal Edition


    for muffins:
  1. 1and 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  2. 1/3 c granulated sugar
  3. 2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1/4 tsp salt
  5. 3/4 c milk
  6. 1/4 c canola or vegetable oil
  7. 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  8. for streusel:
  9. 2 Tbsp unsalted butter ( cold or room temperature - see note )
  10. 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  11. 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  12. 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Grease the top of your muffin pan. Line it with muffin liners. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients ( flour, sugar, baking powder and salt ). Make a well in the center. Set aside.
  4. In another mixing bowl, whisk together egg, milk and oil. Add it all at once to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon. Do not over mix! The batter should be lumpy.
  5. Spoon the batter into prepared muffin pan, filling each cavity 3/4 full.
  6. Sprinkle topping on each muffin.
  7. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in a center of each muffin comes out clean.
  8. Cool in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer onto a cooling rack to cool completely.


For crunchy streusel: use cold butter. For softer streusel that will melt on top of your muffins: use room temperature, softened butter.
