These are the muffins I make the most. They make only seven or eight muffins when using an ice cream scoop to fill the muffin tins. They'll make a little more than that when filling muffin tins only half full. This recipe can easily be doubled, which should make at least one dozen muffins.
Muffins My Way
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 Cup Sugar
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Milk
1/4 Cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1 Cup berries, or chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, nuts, etc.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray or butter muffin tin.
In bowl, mix together very well the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Melt butter, set aside.
Whisk together milk and egg.
Pour milk and egg mixture into bowl of dry ingredients, then pour butter into bowl. Stir only until ingredients are combined, do not over mix.
Pour just a little water in any unused muffin tin.
Check after 17 or 18 minutes, bake longer if a toothpick does not come out clean.
For blueberry muffins, I add about 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract to batter. I make a glaze with a cup of confectioners sugar and a little lemon juice and pour glaze over the baked muffins while they are still a little warm.
For cranberry muffins, I add about 1 teaspoon of orange extract to batter. I make a glaze with one cup of confectioners sugar and a little orange juice and pour that glaze over the baked muffins while they are still warm.
The muffins shown are the basic recipe with 1 cup of butterscotch chips added.
I have also used 1 cup of... cinnamon chips, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and just 1 cup of nuts without any chips.
Although I add only one cup of fruit, or flavored chips, etc., I will add an additional 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans if my son isn't eating any of them. :)
