Muffins are one of the easiest and simplest bakery you can make at home. It doesn’t cost much and it just need to use basic tools or equipment. As a part of life-long learning, making muffins would be an essential to brag on your skills, as well as a baking lesson. With a short ingredient list and only a few key steps, it’s a simple recipe that works for a basic breakfast, a celebratory office treat, or even an improvised dinner roll. Here’s the most basic muffin recipe — one to know by heart.

The muffin method, also know as the muffin mixing method, refers to a standard procedure of mixing ingredients together in a specific order. (This is the basic method used in nearly all quick breads.) For muffins, the dry ingredients are whisked together in a large mixing bowl, while the wet ingredients are mixed together in another bowl or measuring cup before the two are added to each other.

The muffin method also requires that the wet ingredients be added to the dry ingredients, never the other way around, and mixed gingerly.

Once the wet mixture meets the dry mixture, work to quickly but efficiently combine the two, as not to develop too much gluten in the batter (too much gluten equals tough muffins). Some lumps are welcome, especially as fruit, nuts, cheese, or chocolate chips will be added to the batter after mixing.

Add Mix-ins to Make Them Your Own
This simple muffin batter can hold from 1 to 1 1/2 cups of flavorful mix-ins. Blueberries or chocolate chips are gold standards, but any combination of fruit (fresh, dried, or frozen), nuts, or even cheese can be added to make a beyond-basic batch.

5 Favorite Muffin Mix-in Combos

Apple-Cheddar: Peel and dice 1 Granny Smith apple (about 1 cup) and add with 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese to the muffin batter.

Banana-Nut: Finely chop one ripe banana and 1/2 cup walnuts, add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the dry mixture, and fold banana and nut into the finished batter.

Cherry-Chocolate: Soak 3/4 cup dried cherries in warm water, drain, and fold with 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips into the finished batter.

Coffee Cake Muffins: Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg to the dry ingredients. Top the muffins with the below streusel topping before baking.

Funfetti Muffins: Add 1/2 teaspoon almond extract to the wet mixture. Fold in 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles into the batter.
