  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/4 cups of milk or buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Ingredients for Dip for Muffins

  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  • Using mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs and continue mixing. Add remaining ingredients and mix until you have a smooth batter.
  • Spray a 12 cup muffin pan and fill each cup 3/4 full. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 35 minutes or until browned. Remove and let cool. Makes about 18 muffins depending on size you make them.
