Country Morning Muffins

Muffins are one of my favorite things! In the past week I have been searching for something that hits the spot since it seemed like everything was boring me . . . and muffins won. Now that I am in a muffin-obsessed mood, I'm on a quest for muffin recipes that I have not tried and will also post some of my favorite muffin recipes.

Here is one that you can vary by changing the type of fruit or add nuts, raisins, dried fruit . . . I like to make a basic batch of muffin batter, divide it up and make variations from one batch.


1 C. fresh or frozen fruit
2 C. all-purpose flour
4 tsp. baking powder
3/4 C. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1/2 C. butter, melted
1 C. milk
1/4 C. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon


Cut fruit in small pieces. Combine flour, baking powder, 3/4 C. sugar, and salt into a mixing bowl. Stir in fruit until well blended. In a small bowl, beat eggs; add butter and milk. Stir into the flour mixture just to blend. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Sprinkle with 1/4 C. sugar and cinnamon.

Bake in 400-degree oven about 15 minutes.

Yield: 1 dozen muffins
