Muffin Base

Everyone has enjoyed a muffin or two.  Some love banana nut, some are all over the chocolate muffins, and some like poppy seeds.  Well, for those of you in adventurous cooking moods I have the perfect muffin base for any type of muffin you could ever want!  Mix it up and make several different kinds or just make a big batch of your favorites!

Muffin Base

(Dark Cherries and Pineapple, Cinnamon Raisin, Chocolate Chip)

*makes 12 regular sized muffins

1 3/4 C. Flour
1/2 C. Sugar
1/2 C. Brown Sugar
3/4 tsp. Salt
2 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 C. Milk
1/3 C. Oil
1 Egg (well beaten)
1/4 C. Apple Sauce (only use this if you DON'T use some type of fruit in the muffins.  this adds a little extra moisture to the batter.)

1. Add all dry ingredients in a bowl and sift well.
2. Beat the egg in another bowl and then add the rest of the wet ingredients to that bowl.
3. Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix 10-15 times.  DO NOT OVER MIX.
4. This is where you can add your mix-ins.  (blueberries, cinnamon and raisin, cherry and pineapple, chocolate chips, poppy seeds, banana and nuts, etc)
5. Fill the cupcake cups 2/3 full and cook at 400 degrees for 18-22 mins.  Keep a close eye on them due to altitude and different ovens.
6. Check them with a toothpick.  When it comes out clean, pull them out and let them sit for about 5 mins before moving to a cooling rack.
