  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  2. Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Make a well in the center. In a small bowl or 2 cup measuring cup, beat egg with a fork. Stir in milk and oil. Pour all at once into the well in the flour mixture. Mix quickly and lightly with a fork until moistened, but do not beat. The batter will be lumpy. Pour the batter into paper lined muffin pan cups.

These muffins were really tasty. I baked them just as the recipe said. I used 1 cup of shredded coconut in the batter. I then topped them off with some chopped pecans and more shredded coconut. Yummy! TIP - To get your batter to dome, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. As soon as you put the muffin batter in the oven, reduce the heat to what the recipe says. The initial high heat causes the batter to have greater oven spring or the rapid rise during the first few minutes of baking.


GREAT!!! I changed it a little I used 1/2 cup of milk and 3/4 cup of applesauce instead of oil. Also I added a small mashed banana to the batter. Fill the muffin cups half full and add some chopped stawberries to some, chopped apples to some and dried blueberries to have a little variety. A great on-the-go breakfast for my husband who is on the road all day.


Excellent base recipe for all kinds of muffins. It adapted really well so several substitutions: I used vanilla soy milk in place of milk, and honey in place of sugar. I also added two bananas, cinnamon, and sprinkled oatmeal on top. They turned out fabulous! Thanks for the great recipe!
