How to Make Muffins

Yes, I’m doing another recipe for something I want to learn to make. Let’s get right into this. You’re going to need the following:


2 cups of all-purpose flour

3 teaspoons of baking powder

½ teaspoon of salt

¾ cup of white sugar

1 of egg

1 cup of milk

¼ cup of vegetable oil



1 cup of fresh blueberries (for Blueberry Muffins)

1 cup finely chopped raisins (or normal raisins) (for Raisin Muffins)

¼ of crisp, cooked bacon bits (for Bacon Muffins, which I now want to try)


Le Steps (yes it’s labeled that here):

Get your oven preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Take a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar and then add a dip in the center.

Meanwhile, in another, small bowl (or, if you have one, a 2 cup measuring cup), beat the egg with a fork.

Stir the milk and oil in, and then pour all that into the flour mix’s dip and keep mixing with the fork but don’t beat it the batter needs to be lumpy.

Put the batter into the cute little paper lined muffin pan cup thingies with the patterns because come on they’re muffins they need cute cups so you can get them out when they’re done.

Add in whatever variations of the recipe you want or need (see the optional ingredients; in case you’re making the Bacon Muffins, you need to fold them in, unless you just want it mixed in everywhere but I don’t know how that’ll work).

Bake it all for 25 minutes (or at least until they’re golden, in which case they are figuratively golden and you can pull them out to eat) and enjoy. Or don’t I can’t force you to do anything you don’t want to.
