This is a basic fruit muffin recipe. I use chopped apples, but 1 cup of any type fruit may be added to make a quick and easy batch of fruit muffins.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup apple - peeled, cored and chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl, cream together sugar and shortening. Stir the flour mixture into the sugar mixture alternately with the milk. Fold in the fruit. Pour batter into prepared muffin pans.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
