You remember how I mentioned that my little girl was writing her own recipes? Well, we’ve begun baking her ideas! We started with your basic muffin recipe…
1 3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Combine egg, milk, and oil in a separate bowl. Make a well in center of dry mixture. Pour in egg mixture and stir until moistened. Grease muffin tin. Bake in a 400F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or till golden. Makes 12 muffins.
She took notes of the ingredients we added for her original creations…
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup oatmeal
An additional 1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup raisins
2 tablespoons milk (in addition to)
1/2 cup mushed bananas
1/2 cup chopped nuts (we used macadamia nuts)
Mix ingredients as above in basic recipe. Add bananas and mix well. Fold in nuts.
I did inform her that every baker must wash her own dishes! She gladly helped!
