    CherryT's Note:

    This is a basic muffin recipe that you can either leave plain or add other favorite ingredients to make them special. They are very easy and fast to make. It is great when you want to make a ton of muffins but want each batch to have a different flavor. I got this recipe from a very old cook book of my moms. she always baked from it and every recipe from it is absolutely yummy. Its called "Quick Breads"

      Good basic recipe that lends itself to variations. Nice, crunchy texture outside and moist inside. I didn't follow your instructions to only add ONE extra ingredient :) I added dried cranberries instead of raisins and also added the orange zest. I knew I wouldn't get 10 muffins from this so I filled my tins a little fuller and got 6 good-sized muffins. Made for Variety Event.

      This are a nice, simple basic muffin recipe. I made the blueberry variation and my husband really loved it! I also used those extra large muffin tins and only got 4 muffins. I don't think this would make 10 regular sized muffins, but I could be wrong. The batter tasted very sweet to me, but the finished product was not overly sweet. Made for the Variety Event in the Contest/Events forum.
