Friday Feasting: Plain (but amazing) Muffins

I want to share this recipe today because it's simple but yummy. We are headed into cooler weather (I think) and with that comes the desire for comfort foods like homemade soups and baked goods. One of our favorite snacks or breakfasts, especially during the colder months is muffins. There are more than a gazillion muffin recipes out there and we probably have tried many of them and even liked most of them, but there's one that we always come back to from The Hillbilly Housewife. It's a very simple plain muffin recipe that you can turn into any sort of deliciousness that you want. We've made it into a savory side for dinner, a simple snack muffin with cinnamon sugar on top, or added things like craisins, raisins, dried apples, etc. 
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! 

PLAIN (but amazing) MUFFINS 

Oven Temp: 400 degrees + Prep time: 15 min + Cook time: 15-20 min
Yield: about 2 dozen muffins 

½ cup oil 
2 medium eggs 
2 cups milk 
¾ cup sugar 
1 tsp salt 
2 tbsp baking powder 
4 cups flour 

In a large bowl combine the oil, egg, milk, sugar, and salt. Mix it very well with a fork or wire whisk. Measure in the baking powder and flour. Mix again until all of the dough particles are moistened. Do not over mix. The whole thing should take about 20-30 strokes. Spoon the batter into a dozen well greased muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before removing from the pan. Eat and enjoy!
