Sweet Muffins


These muffins have been a family favorite of ours for about 20 years. My kids think they are mana sent from Heaven... (and who am I to tell them differently). I can't ever seem to make enough of them. They are filling and easy to whip up in the morning for breakfast. Often times, I serve them with a bowl of cereal, but the cereal goes untouched because everyone prefers to just to eat the muffins. Good luck in keeping ANY of these around for leftovers....they don't last in our house.

Sweet Muffins

2 eggs
1 c. milk
1/2 c. oil
3 c. flour
1 c. sugar
4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt

Topping:
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
Cut together with a pastry cutter or two knives until the butter is crumbly and in small pieces.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Blend all ingredients for the muffins together. Batter should be lumpy. Spray muffin pan with pan coating and fill muffin cups 2/3 full...( I prefer NOT to use the cupcake liners, these muffins are TOO big and need to be made directly in the pan). Combine ingredients together for topping and mix according to instructions. Sprinkle a little bit of topping mixture to the top of each cup of muffin batter and bake for 20-23 minutes. (DO NOT over bake these or they are dry...just cook until lightly browned but done...check at 20 minutes)

Happy Cooking~
