Makes 10 plain or 12 fruit muffins


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, pitted cherries or diced peeled peaches or apples (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel, (optional)


Lightly grease ten or twelve cups in a 12-cup muffin pan or line with paper baking cups; set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center. In a small mixing bowl, combine the egg, milk and oil; add to the flour mixture. Stir just till moistened. (The batter should be lumpy.) Stir in fruit and/or lemon peel, if desired.

Fill the prepared muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven about 20 minutes, or till golden. Remove from pans; cool slightly on racks.
