  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups. Stir the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg and allow it to blend into the butter mixture; beat the vanilla and milk into the mixture with the second egg. Mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just incorporated. Divide the dough into the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 30 minutes.

These muffins were quite good. I went with 2 cups of flour bc the mix seemed too runny. I also added a little bit of lemon zest, some chocolate chips, and some sliced almonds. Great for break...

I made these for Saturday morning coffee at my Grandma's. I added raspberries and chocolate chips to them. Everyone loved them.

These were great! I followed the recipe exactly, and didn't have any problems with the batter being thin. I think next time I'll add chocolate chips or blueberries.
