Basic Muffin Recipe

 New recipe I've found and enjoy. These can be made sweet or savory. I added bacon bits and cheese. 

Replace canola oil with butter. 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar *omit if making a savory muffin
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk; room temperature
  • 2 eggs; room temperature
  • ¼ cup Canola oil


  • Set your oven to 400 °F and center your oven rack.
  • Line a 12 cavity muffin tin with baking cups or parchment paper. If you prefer, spray with nonstick spray if you do not want to use liners.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, granular sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    * If you are adding other spices, cinnamon or garlic, they will be added here.
  • In a separate small bowl, lightly beat the wet ingredients: milk, egg, and vegetable oil.
    * If you are adding extracts, vanilla, they will be added here.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Fold 18 times with a spatula.
    If you are adding add-ons, fruit, chocolate chips, bacon, cheese, they will be added here. Fold batter 10 times, add the add-ons, and fold remaining 8 times.
  • Divide batter equally into your muffin tins, filling them 2/3 of the way full. I use an ice cream scoop to do this.
  • Bake for 12 – 17 minutes, this will vary based on the add-ons. The muffin should spring back to the touch when it's done and be light brown on top and sides.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the muffin tin. Place on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
