Nice 'n' Simple
Muffins and Memories

This is the muffin recipe that I learned to make in Home Ec in high school, a class I very begrudgingly took because my dad wanted me to learn to cook before I moved out on my own. I couldn't make much by the time I moved out, but I could make muffins!



  1. 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F.
    Grease muffin tins or use cupcake papers .
    Beat egg slightly, add oil and milk. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, including sugar. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add milk mixture. Stir just enough to incorporate ingredients. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake 20 – 25 minutes, until slightly browned around the edges.
    Makes 6-9 muffins. Can be doubled.

  2. 2

    before baking, sprinkle tops with 1 TBS cinnamon that has been combined with 1/2 cup sugar
    add 1/2 cup chopped pecans to flour before adding liquid ingredients
    substitute 1/2 cup oatmeal or whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup flour
    add 1 cup berries (fresh, frozen, or canned)
    Jen’s additions:
    I usually prep my pans with veggie oil.
    for banana muffins, substitute 1/2 cup oatmeal for 1/2 cup flour and add 2 ripe, mashed bananas
