This is a great basic muffin recipe. I have been using this same recipe for many, many years. It is very adaptable - add fruit, nuts or diced cooked bacon. Our favorite variation is Surprise Muffins. Put 1 tablespoon of batter into muffin tin, top with 1 teaspoon of jelly (strawberry or plum) then add batter to fill muffin tin 2/3 full. Bake as usual. The "surprise" is the jelly center! I love basic recipes that can be used again and again - and this is one of them!!

Made these for Grandpa's birthday. Grandpa is our cat. Yes, you read that right...I made muffins for the cat's birthday. She didn't get any, but my husband was happy to celebrate for her. Unfortunately, these simple muffins were not that tasty...just ok. I probably won't try them again.

This is the best recipe! I made this in my "Foods" class in high school (1996) and I have loved it ever since. As simple as the recipe is, I lost it and I haven't made it in a couple years- but I'm so glad I found it again! Thanks for posting the recipe!! :)

My son wanted a plain muffin so I tried these, I doubled the recipe and got 12 large muffins, I used melted butter for the oil, added a pinch of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla, I halved the sugar because I added a tsp of blueberry jam inside each muffin, very good, baked 20 mins at 350 in my oven.

I was looking for a basic muffin recipe and I found it!! The first time I made them I followed the recipe exactly and they were good. The second time, I wanted to play around with it so I added a little vanilla extract and some chocolate chips and they were delicious! A big hit :D Thank you

GREAT muffins!! I only got 9 muffins from this recipe not 12, so next time, I might make a double batch. I served these with the honey butter recipe also found on this site. My husband had 3 of them with his dinner and my 5 year old ate 2 of them and was still asking for more! Thank you for this wonderful recipe, it will be a regular at my house!

My boys inhaled the whole batch of these muffins. My only complaints are that they stuck to the muffin tins and that it feels like I'm feeding the kids cake! If I could find a way to sneak in some nutritional value, they'd be perfect.
