Simple Vanilla Muffins

Here's a delicious, simple muffin recipe that's great for breakfast, brunch or even dessert! Simple Vanilla Muffins are one of my favorite treats to bake!


Our cafeteria in college had an amazing kitchen where chefs would actually bake up fresh muffins every morning. They would serve them right out of the muffin tins, and it's obviously something I never forgot! One of my favorites was a vanilla based muffin, and although I've never found a recipe quite like it, this was the closest I've come! Thanks to Tina at Kaipunyam blog for sharing her amazing vanilla muffin recipe with the world. Here's my attempt at it.


You Will Need:

4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
8 Tbsp melted butter
1 Tbsp plus 2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
2 eggs


Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400F. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In a small bowl, combine milk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla extract.

Pour your milk mixture into your dry ingredients and mix well. The batter will appear slightly lumpy. Do not over-mix.

Transfer to muffin tin, filling cups halfway with batter (use paper liners/cupcake liners for best results, foil liners for even better results, as sometimes they can stick to the paper ones). Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes (they will be a bit gummy if you over-bake, so be sure to keep an eye on them and remove them from the oven before they get too brown- you want them just golden!). Yields 24 regular size muffins.



Serve warm or sprinkle with sugar. Also great with fruit! And P.S. your house will smell amazing while you're baking these.
