Lightbulb Easy Muffins - customize as you please!


I used to make baked desserts using mixes. More recently, I gained enough confidence to start baking from scratch. My first two attempts at cookies didn't go too well, but I did make bread and muffins from scratch that turned out well. I'd like to share the muffin recipe with you:

  • 1 ¾ (one + three-fourth) cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ (half) teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ (quarter) teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 (two-third) cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • mix-in (i.e. diced fruit, nuts, chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In one bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Stir.

In another bowl, whisk the eggs until blended. Add milk and melted butter and continue stirring. Pour this mixture over the bowl with dry ingredients, and stir with spatula until moistened. Add in diced fruit (such as apples or pears), nuts (such as walnuts or almonds), or chocolate chips. However you want to flavor your muffins! Then fold mixture a few times, being careful not to over-mix.

Pour the batter into muffin cups, filling each cup about 3/4ths full. Bake for 16 minutes.

With the normal muffin cups (2" is it?), this recipe should yield about 18 muffins.
