Basic Vanilla Muffins for Dinner (Not Sweet!)

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

Good at dinner especially when served with highly spiced or flavorful main dishes. Similar in taste to a popover or cornbread minus the cornmeal. As one review has mentioned, these are *not* a sweet muffin. I usually serve them at dinner.

I know that other reviewers didn't like these because they were not sweet enough, but they were exactly what I was looking for. I subbed buttermilk for the milk, added crumbled breakfast sausage and shredded cheddar cheese and served them for breakfast. They were PERFECT!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F Grease muffin pans and set aside.
  2. Stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt until completely mixed. Place the sugar, eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl and mix well. Add the combined dry ingredients and mix by hand just until the batter is blended; it should not be completely smooth.
  3. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pans, filling each cup about two-thirds full.
  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the pans and serve warm.
