Plain Muffins

Recipe submitted by Mrs. Ed Umble, Gap, Pa.

2 1/2 cups flour

4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbsp sugar

3 Tbsp melted fat

1 or 2 eggs

1 cup milk

Sift flour; measure and add baking powder, salt and sugar. Sift again.

Beat eggs and add to milk; pour this into flour mixture. Stir only enough to blend ingredients together, batter should be slightly lumpy.

Drop by spoonfuls into greased muffin tins, filling 2/3 full.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Yield 12-15 muffins.


It’s all in the name: plain muffins……and plain they are. Plain… until paired with anything I could think of! Great with butter…..unbelievable with strawberry marmalade, perfect with cheese and a great companion to a cheddar and onion omelet. These muffins are not meant to be eaten alone, but seemed to make everything on them taste that much better……except for peanut butter…..don’t do it.

For my melted fat I used lard which is probably why I like them so much. And mine yield was 12 making them a little bigger then a regular muffin. Make them, and top with whatever you fancy!
