Basic Muffin Recipe

Try this versatile basic muffin recipe and add chocolate chips, white chocolate chunks, dried fruit, raisins, cherries, apricots, or dates. Serve these muffins for breakfast or brunch.

This is an old basic white muffin recipe and very good. It came from my mom’s freshman Home Economics class in the early 1960’s.

You can add anything of your dreams to this recipe…chocolate chips are wonderful, white chocolate chunks are even better, and raisins are great. Any dried fruit is super…cherries, apricots, dried cranberries, or even chopped dates.
