Easy Baking Recipes, Breakfast: Basic Muffin

basic muffin

We love this muffin as a simple, easy to make muffin. We sometimes dip them into a bowl of maple syrup, or serve them with home-made jam.

Basic Muffin

½ cup milk
1 egg
1 ½ cup flour
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a muffin tin.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well moistened. Fill muffin cups almost full.

Bake about 15 to 18 minutes.

Remove from pan and cool on a cooling rack.

  1. Thanks for this easy recipe! I'm writing it down and going to make it today. :) Can't get any better than question...have you ever put fruit in this recipe? Like cranberry or blueberry?

  2. Nancy, What a easy and basic recipe. Thank you for sharing. I made pop overs a few weeks ago, I could not believe how easy they were. I remember eating them when I was younger, but I don't remember making them. My nieces gobbled them up. When I visit them next time, I will make your muffin recipe for them. Thanks. Emily

  3. I hope you both enjoy!

    I haven't put fruit in them, but I am sure it they would be very good that way.

    Emily, I am glad the pop overs came out well. The first time I made them I was surprised how easy they were, I always thought pop overs were a hard thing to make!
