    Mix-in Muffins

    1 egg, beaten

    1 cup milk

    1/4 cup oil

    2 cups flour

    1/2 cup sugar

    3 teaspoons baking powder

    1 teaspoon salt

    mix-ins of your choice: dried fruit, chopped bananas, chopped apples, chocolate chips, jelly, berries, chopped nuts, jam, butterscotch chips, shredded coconut, or your own idea

    1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF (204ºC).

    2. Line a muffin pan with 12 liners, or grease and flour the pan.

    3. Mix together the egg, milk, and oil in a bowl.

    4. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix until just combined. Batter will have some lumps.

    5. Place 1–2 teaspoons of a mix-in in the bottom of each muffin cup. Fill each cup half full with batter. Use a toothpick to stir in the mix-in.

    6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, and then remove the muffins from the pan.
