Make plain or add fruit. Batter should be lumpy for best muffins.


  1. Preheat oven 375, use paper muffin cups or grease pan.
  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl, form a well in center.
  3. Mix oil, water and eggs together and then pout into the well.
  4. Stir just until flour is moistened. Add fruit in using.
  5. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  6. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until lightly browned.

These were great. My three year old, who is dairy free, helped make them! the only adaptation was the addition of 1/2 tspn of vanilla essence. For oil, I used half coconut oil, half virgin olive oil. I loved the fact that they were not too sweet. Lovely and moist too :)

I am giving it 5 Stars for FIVE reasons (1) I am so impressed that a muffin using water could turn out so well (2) Such Simple ingredients that I always have on hand (3) NO Dairy, thank you! (4) These even had DH's approval (5) Easy to make. ***I have to mention --- if you like a traditionally sweet muffin you will need to double the sugar, or, do what we did, eat them with a sweet spread. We used a mix of coconut oil and honey. YUM

Very versatile muffin with a pleasant fluffy texture! I made them with frozen mango and they were delicious! Also added cinnamon and a dash of vanilla. Not all that sweet- I quite enjoyed them that way- so I would recommend going generous on the sugar if you like a sweet muffin. All in all an excellent choice, especially if you (like me) found yourself out of milk and are looking for a dairy-free option.
