When trying a new recipe, making up a whole batch of muffins & then not really caring for the flavor or texture or both is pretty annoying. Here's a little quickie I picked up that only makes 4 muffins; healthy ones to boot. Almost like a try before you buy deal.
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 cup quick-cooking oats
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
- 1 tablespoon oil
- Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat 4 regular size muffin cups with cooking spray.
- Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon & salt.
- In another bowl, mix the egg, milk, applesauce & oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Don't over mix or the mufins will toughen up.
- Fill prepared muffin tins 2/3 full.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Cool for 5 minutes in pan. Remove to rack.
- Serve warm.
I was craving a muffin and did not want to make a whole batch so this was perfect. I used evaporated milk and instant brown sugar oatmeal (cut sugar to 1 tablespoon). I just finished one straight out of the oven and it was very good, with a nice spring to it. Let me know if you have anymore muffin recipes for two! Update: great with frozen blueberries. Update: I've made these muffins several times now and LOVE them. They have a slightly spongy texture and lots of apple flavor. Once I was out of the egg and used powdered egg whites (for two eggs) and they turned out wonderfully, too. Roxygirl
I actually doubled the recipe, following the ingredients exactly but adding 1/2 cup of dried sweetened cranberries as a last step before going into the muffin tin. This made large, moist muffins, baking for 15 minutes. I do think that the cranberries added a lot to the muffins, and think that without some fruit or additions you should be prepared for a basic, plain muffin.
pretty good! made with sf syrup and no egg. thanks!
