Here's one for the old timers on here. Does anyone recall the recipe for muffins. And you could use any add-ins. It came from the original group that took up elsewhere. Was it FB? It was about two years ago I guess. I have checked my last two laptops for my "favorites", sure I marked the page but I guess not. And I cannot remember the poster's name. There were two of them so similar. Korie? Kora? Mominator..where are you?

It was years ago. A "group" parted ways. Not sure it was even FB, that's how long ago it was. But they had a muffin recipe. It was basic and you could add anything to it. Darn.

Basic Muffins With Variations Recipe I worked in a bakery and we made dozens of these moist muffins in different flavors every day. You can add any fruit you like to the basic batter. Ingredients • 2 cups flour • 1 cup sugar • 2 teaspoons baking powder • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1 egg • 3/4 cup milk • 3/8 cup oil (that is 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons) • About 1 cup of any additional optional ingredients Directions 1. Stir together dry ingredients in a large bowl. 2. Add wet ingredients and any optional ingredients and stir just until moistened. (Adjust amount of milk depending on how moist your add-ins are - add less for moist things like banana, crushed pineapple, or pumpkin and add a bit more if needed for dried fruits.) 3. Scoop into greased muffins tins (an ice cream scoop works well for this). 4. Sprinkle the tops with sugar if desired, and bake at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until done. 5. NOTES: 6. You can mix up a large batch of the basic dry mix (flour, sugar, baking powder and salt) and store in a sealed container in your pantry. 7. To have fresh muffins in the morning, stir the mix and measure out 3 cups of mix for one dozen muffins, 6 cups for two dozen muffins, add the wet ingredients and the optional ingredients and bake. 8. Or, for a large group, make a large batch of the basic mix and make one dozen each of a variety of flavors with a lot less work. 9. VARIATIONS: 10. Banana Nut - add 1c. mashed bananas and 1/2 c. chopped walnuts. 11. Blueberry - add 1 c. fresh or frozen blueberries. 12. Pina Colada - add 1 small can drained crushed pineapple and 1/2 c. coconut. 13. Apple Spice - add 1 peeled chopped apple, 1/4 teas. cinnamon and a dash nutmeg. 14. Coffee Walnut - add 1 teas. coffee extract and 3/4 c. chopped walnuts. 15. Pumpkin Spice - add 1 c. canned pumpkin, 1/2 teas. pumpkin pie spices, 1/2 c. nuts. 16. Mincemeat - add 1 c. canned mincemeat and 1/2 c. chopped nuts. 17. Date Nut - add 1 c. chopped dates and 1/2 c. nuts. 18. Cranberry - add 1 c. chopped fresh cranberries, 1/2 c. nuts, 1 teas. orange rind. 19. Chocolate chip - add 1 c. chocolate chips and 1/2 teas. vanilla extract, nuts if desired. 20. Cherry Almond - add 1 c. chopped dried cherries and 1/2 c. toasted flaked almonds. 21. Anything else you can think up. Adjust amount of milk in batter depending on the moistness of the added ingredients.

What a saviour! Thanks so much! New neighbors moving in and want to take muffins. Also doing the ever popular donut muffins from here. (They have two young children, sure they'll appreciate the sugar content:)

And who the heck was the person who posted that? And it wasn't FB. It was before FB. Shh... don't tell how long we've been hanging around.

This recipe can be your starting point for a wide array of sweet and savory muffins, depending on what you decide to add. You can choose blueberries or Cheddar, for instance. It's up to you.

How is group recipes doing these days? I didn't ever go back to it after so many broke off from here. It was too confusing to me-----too many recipes with no background or something like that.

Love, love, love that recipe, by "whodunitdr", I make it every week for my guys, Hubby loves the Choco chip, I add some white chipits, and some skor bits, I use soured milk (milk and vinegar) and add a little sour cream too! I also make blueberry lemon, or cranberry lemon or whatever I'm in the mood to make! Just play with the recipe!
