RECIPE

Anything But Basic Muffins

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a muffin tin with 10 muffin cups, and spray the muffin cups with an oil-based spray. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, melted butter, buttermilk, and vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet, mixing only until combined. Having a few lumps in the batter is totally fine!
  5. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups, filling just shy of the top of the cups. Bake for 5 minutes at 425°F, then, without opening your oven door, turn the oven down to 350°F and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
