This is a basic muffin recipe that my mother used to make for us. I believe she got it from one of her old cookbooks, although I'm not sure. It's an easy recipe that is good for beginning bakers. It can be made less sweet to accompany savory meals (mom often served them with chili), or it can be made sweeter and fruit, such as blueberries, or other flavorings added to them. You can also adjust the amount of egg used. I like to make them with both eggs and about 2-4 T sugar.
