Hi! It's Miranda with recipe.com and today I'm gonna show you how to make Muffins. Now, once you have this basic muffin recipe down, you can make all sorts of delicious muffin combinations. This is just a great, simple muffin batter recipe. So, without further adieu, let's get baking. I have our ingredients all laid out here. We're going to begin with 1-3/4 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1 egg (beaten), 3/4 cup of milk, and 1/4 cup of cooking oil. So, we are going to begin. I'm just gonna grab my dry ingredients here and we're just gonna-- gonna pop them together, so the baking powder and the salt. And, I'm just gonna give this just like a nice little mix, just until they're all combined. Now, we're just gonna make a well in the center, so you can use your fingers or you can just, you know, use the spatula but you're just gonna make a well for our wet ingredients eventually to be added into. Okay, perfect. Speaking of the wet ingredients, let's put our egg, oil, and milk in this larger bowl here. And, we're just gonna mix this together until it's nice and combine. I find that the whisk works really well for this purpose. You may notice sometimes that oil can be a little bit fussy and does it always want to play well with others, so whisk would really help everything to combine. Now, what we're going to do is combine these two. So, we are just going to pour the wet ingredients right into that well. They're right into the middle. Look at that. And, we are just gonna stir this until the dry ingredients are moisten. This batter will be lumpy and that's totally okay because we don't want to over mix. We're just gonna gently stir this until it's all combined and all the flour and those dry ingredients are nice and wet. And look at that. As you see we've got lumps, that's perfectly okay. That's gonna happen here. This is what your batter should look like, a little bit lumpy but nice and combined. So, our oven is behind me. It's preheated at 400 degrees and I have this muffin tin right here which is already been greased or you could use little, you know, muffin papers, little cupcake holders if you want them instead. And, just using the spoon, I'm gonna fill these each with 2/3 of the weight full. And then, once they're filled I'm going to pop them in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes until I can insert like a toothpick in the center and it comes out nice and clean. And then, we'll let them cool in a wire rack and we'll be ready to enjoy our muffins. Alright, so my muffins are out of the oven. I transferred them here to this wire rack, so that they can cool. They look how beautiful, delicious. If you allow them just to cool in the muffin tins themselves, it would just continue to cook. Obviously, the tin is metal and it holds that heat, so they continue to cook as they cool. So, that's why it's important to just pop them out. Put them on a nice, cool wire rack like this and let them cool and there you have it. That's how you make Muffins.
