HALF-PINT COOKING MUFFINS

My daughter clued me into this website (halfpintcooking.com.) The recipes are geared to teaching children to cook.  Kids or not, these are very good muffins.


Ingredients:
     2 cups Flour
     1 Tbsp Baking Powder
     ½ tsp Salt
     ½ cup Sugar
     1  Large Egg
     1 tsp Vanilla Extract
     ⅓ cup Oil
     1 cup Milk

Mix-in options:Blueberries, Chocolate Chips, Lemon Extract and Poppy Seeds, Coconut, Craisins, Raspberries, Brown Sugar and Oats, nuts, etc.

1-Make sure you have all the ingredients, clean your work area, and wash your hands.
2-Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
3-Spray your muffin tins or put paper liners in the muffin tins.
4-In a large bowl add your flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix it all together.
5-In a separate bowl add your milk, vanilla extract, egg, and oil. Whisk it all together.
6-Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix it until it’s just combined. It doesn’t have to be smooth. Do not over mix. If you over mix it then the tops will be more like a tall cone. You want it to be a nicely rounded top.
7-Fill the muffin tins about ⅔ of the way full.
8-Add any mix-ins on top of the muffins and then get a toothpick to stir them in a little. Again, try not to over mix it.
9-Bake them for 17-19 minutes. Let them cool down a little before taking them out.
10-Clean up your mess.
11-Eat, Share, enjoy!!!
