1/2 C milk
1/4 C oil
1 1/2 C flour
3/4 C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat egg slightly, stir in milk and oil. Mix in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened. Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from pan immediately.
Fruit: Stir in 2/3 C drained fruit with the milk. Sprinkle tops with cinnamon sugar if desired. i.e. applesauce, crushed pineapple, chopped apricots, chopped cherries, blueberries, whole cranberry sauce, mashed banana, etc.
Cereal: Decrease flour to 1 cup. Stir 3/4 C crushed cereal into milk and egg before adding dry ingredients. i.e. raisin bran, wheaties, any fruit and nut cereal, instant oatmeal, crushed graham crackers, etc.
