Here is the recipe for the muffins that Dale shared at Thursday's play day.
Preheat oven to 350
Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. (I use a tin that makes four giant muffins.)
1/3 cup unbleached flour
1 1/2 tablespoons of butter
1 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1/4-1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of salt
6 tablespoons of butter
1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of milk
(I use soy milk)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Two cups chopped fruit, and/or nuts and/or chocolate chips
(One batch of the muffins I made had dates, bananas, dried cranberries and chocolate chips. The other batch had strawberries, almonds and chocolate chips.)
2 cups unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Sift together the dry ingredients.
For the wet ingredients: cream together the butter and sugar; beat in the egg then the milk and vanilla; fold in the fruit, nuts,etc.
For the streusel: blend all of the ingredients with a fork or pastry cutter until the butter is pea sized or smaller
To assemble: Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir. Spoon into muffin cups. Sprinkle streusel topping on each muffin.
Bake 30-35 minutes. Smaller muffins might take a little less time.
