I really like these muffins, but we haven’t had them in quite awhile. The recipe is from my cousin, not sure of the original source, but we have had the recipe for many years. I ate a lot of these in the days after Evie was born, it was one of my sources of sustenance. I kind of needed a break after that, but I thought of them the other day and voila.
In a bowl mix together the following dry ingredients:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/8 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
In another bowl mix together the following wet ingredients:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and let sit for 1-2 minutes.
This is what it looks like after sitting, sort of foamy
Fill greased muffin tins, or use liners, 3/4 full. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes until done.
*Note: You can add in 1/2 cup of berries if you would like to make them into berry muffins.
I was given a large bag of frozen blueberries by my neighbour, who received a large amount from a friend who is a farmer and picked them fresh and then froze them. I did a split batch here, filled half the cups with non-berry batter and then added a couple of handfuls of berries to the rest of the batter and finished filling the cups.
These didn’t last long!
