Who Wants Hot Muffins?

I just made a batch of lemon almond muffins; you should smell my kitchen! and fuck me but these are fantastic!

muffin mania (basic recipe)
2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil (canola, olive, safflower, etc.)
1 oz extract (use the whole bottle) - see below
optional mix-ins - see ** below
  1. preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. dump all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.

  3. spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray or use paper cup liners; pour batter into pan/liners.

  4. bake for 18 minutes until a tester comes out clean. your oven, YMMV.

  5. let cool on rack.
try extracts like anise, rum, peppermint, maple, orange, banana, strawberry, vanilla, lemon.

** add nuts or poppy seeds or raisins or chocolate chips or coconut. add fruit. add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg or ginger. GO CRAZY!
