Simple Muffins

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups organic brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup nondairy milk or water
1/4 cup oil
nonstick spray

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder together in a mixing bowl.
2. Add milk or water and oil. Mix together. Place baking cups in a muffin pan or spray with nonstick spray.
3. Pour mixture into cups. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
How many you make depends on how big your pan is and how much is poured into each muffin.
Note: this is a very plain but delicious recipe. I love it. They’re good for breakfast with your coffee, tea, etc., though I eat them at anytime.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Hmm... Don't over stir.  Speed is essential.  Just whip them together, pour them in a frenzy, and chuck them in the oven.  No time to taste the batter!!  (haha, I'm so lame ::))I use small muffin tins, and fill them completely full.  Preheat the oven to 450, like someone suggested, and then turn it down to 400 when you cram the tins in.

Check to make sure your baking powder isn't dead?

Help!  I made these exactly by the recipe and the muffin batter was amazing.  I put it in the oven and they completely collapsed, thinned out and burned!  What did I do wrong?!?  I need to make these right, the batter was so yummy!

I subbed 1/2 cup flour with whole wheat flour and subbed all the oil for applesauce

Yum!!  Just might be the best thing I've ever tasted.  Screw rich desserts, I'll tear up these muffins any day. 

Great variation:  Make them "suprise muffins" by filling them with fruit perserves.  My favorite filling is to boil raisins and sugar and lemon juice down into a sticky syrup goo and using that.

Thank you for the best recipe ever! ;D

I used 1/2 all purpose flour, 1/2 whole wheat flour, and 1/2 oat bran. I added raisins, also. Delicious

SOOOOO good.  I had a little time to kill so I thought I would make these. I stole an idea from another receipe and brewed two bags of chai tea in the 3/4 cup water.    Then I realized that I don't actually have any muffin tins.  I had to make these into bars in a glass pan.  They were amazing and light!!!!  YUM!

These turned out great and were way too easy! I added blueberries and reduced the sugar by one-third, as Camillemays did, which was perfect, as I don't like overly sweet foods.  I also baked it for for ~ 17 minutes @ 400 degrees.  I think 30 minutes is too long.  I'll be doing these again!

P.S For those of you who cook/bake for just one person, as I do, if you divide this recipe by one-third, it makes 1 nice sized muffin  :)

Maliaka, your oven temperature was too cool.  That's why your muffins have dents in the middle of them.  Do you use an oven thermometer? Unless you have a very new oven chances are your thermostat is incorrect.
