Basic Muffin....add what you like!

We like muffins around here.  I make them a couple times a week for breakfast.  This is my basic go to muffin recipe.  You can throw in whatever you like to this recipe.  My kids favorite add-in is miniature butterscotch chips.  (I get these in the bulk section at Winco.)  For some reason when you add in butterscotch chips the muffins taste like yellow cake batter.  Weird, but good.

Basic Buttermilk Muffins 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 2 lg. eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk, plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 2/3 cup white sugar or brown sugar  (I always use some kind of cane sugar here...or brown if I am out of cane, very rarely white sugar)
  • 4 T. melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 t. vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare muffin pan either with cupcake liners or nonstick spray.  Combine dry ingredients.  Whisk together eggs, buttermilk, sugar, butter or oil and vanilla.  Do not over mix; batter should not be smooth.  Gently fold in add in of your choice: 1/2 cup mini-butterscotch chips, 1 cup blueberries, 1 cups nuts, etc. Divide evenly amount muffin cups. Bake until tester comes out clean, 12 to 15 minutes.

****If you do not have buttermilk, plain yogurt or sour cream, you can use 1 cup regular milk and omit the baking soda.
