Basic Muffin Recipe

I’ve posted Banana Muffin recipe few days ago, and thought that some of you, maybe, ain’t really fond of the taste of banana. So this is a recipe for you! A basic muffin recipe that you can transform into any kind of muffins you like.

This recipe is inspired by Nigella Lawson’s Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins. She’s my domestic goddess! 😀

Ingredients:
– 250 gr all purpose flour (Indonesians can use either “Segitiga Biru” or “Kunci Biru” flour)
– 2 teaspoons baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
– 175 gr sugar
– 250 ml milk
– 90 ml vegetable oil
– 1 egg
– 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
(the real vanilla extract is quite expensive.. You can substitute it with cheaper vanilla essence)

Modifications:

If you are in the mood of Chocolate Muffins, please add:

–       2 tablespoons cocoa powder 
(you know, the one that comes with brand like: Van Houten, Delfi, whatever…you choose.. but please, do not use chocolate milk powder..)

–       150 gr choc-chips (plus more for sprinkling later!)

Got the point? You can easily make ANY kind of muffins you like by simply adding 150 grams of your favorite flavor into your muffin batter. Life is simple, indeed… 😀

How to make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200′ C, and fill a muffin tray with paper cases
  2. Measure out the dry ingredients into a large bowl. They are: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and your choice of flavor (e.g.: if you are making Chocolate Muffins, add the cocoa powder and chocolate chips)
  3. Pour all the liquid ingredients into a measuring jug and mix. They are: milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract
  4. Pour liquid into dry ingredients, then mix both together. Remember, do not over-mix the batter!
  5. Spoon the batter into the muffin cases. Sprinkle your choice of flavor on top (chocolate-chips, or grated cheese, or crushed oreos, and so on…)
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are risen, and springy
