We love muffins! They are a wonderful addition to any brunch, lunch or dinner. Here is a basic vintage muffin recipe from Farm Journal's Country Cookbook, 1959 which is sure to bake up tender, fluffy muffins every time. An unlimited variety of muffins can be made by adding to this basic recipe. Try adding your favorite cheese and garlic, apples and nutmeg, or strawberries and chocolate. Whether savory or sweet, muffins are sure to please any palate.
Basic Muffin Recipe
2 cups sifted flour
1 tblsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tblsp. sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
3 tblsp. oil or melted shortening
Sift together, flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Combine in bowl egg, milk and oil; pour into dry ingredients all at once. With a wooden spoon, stir until dry ingredients are moist but still lumpy about 17 to 25 strokes.
Spoon batter into greased muffin pans, filling pans only 2/3 full. Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees 20 to 28 minutes, depending on the size of the muffins. Makes about 18 medium sized muffins.

The Baker Babes love going to New York City. Visiting a variety of bakeries in Manhattan is always delightful as we sample their decadent sweets along the way. New York is also a great place to find unique baking pans, molds, cake platters and kitchen gadgets at shops like Fishes Eddy, http://www.fisheseddy.com/. During this trip we found some adorable vintage flour sifters at T-Party Antiques in Rowayton Connecticut, http://www.tpartyantiques.com/. After these busy weekends we always feel creatively inspired and can't wait to get back to our kitchen to bake something new and heavenly...like our chocolate zuchinni cake!
