1 Tbs. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. sugar for sweet muffins, 1 tsp. sugar for savory
1 egg slightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 375. Grease 12 muffin cups. Mix dry ingredients and then add wet ingredients until just combined. Batter will not be smooth. Spoon into muffin cups and bake for 17-22 minutes.
Sweet additions: 1/2 cup dried fruit.
Savory additions: crumbled bacon or finely chopped ham and 1/3 cup cubed cheese. I also added a few additional spices like a touch of garlic powder, thyme, and 1/8 tsp. pepper. Perfect served along side soup.
I've baked this recipe both savory and sweet now, both time with whole wheat flour/white flour combo. The muffins are fluffy, healthy, and have a nutty-buttery taste. This is a super easy and fast snack.
