muffin mania

I was around when muffins became all the rage in the eighties.
In the early nineties, I was a newly-married housewife.
I made so many muffins I didn’t even need to use the recipe any more.
Which was probably the point at which it stopped getting spattered.

There’s a pattern to muffins:
mix the dry ingredients together
mix the wet ingredients together
combine the two with as little mixing as possible
add any extras
two-thirds fill muffin tins
bake at 180ºC 15-20 minutes

1 1/2C flour
1/3C cocoa
1 1/2t baking powder
1/2t baking soda
1/2C sugar

1 egg
2T butter, melted
1C sour milk
1t vanilla

1/2C walnuts (optional)
1/2C chocolate chips (not optional!!!!)


1 1/2C flour
2t baking powder
1/2t baking soda
1/2t salt
1/2C sugar
1/4T nutmeg
1C bran

2T water
1t vamilla
1egg, beaten
1/4C butter, melted

1 1/2C banana, mashed
1C nuts
3/4C raisins
These ones might take a little longer to cook
