Basic Muffins - Only 12 Cents per Muffin!

This is my youngest daughter's favorite muffin recipe.  It is SO easy and they taste good.  They are richer because you use sour cream instead of milk and the doughy tastes almost like a coffee cake dough would.  This makes about 15 muffins.


2 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

8 ounces sour cream


Beat eggs.  Add sugar.  Pour in oil and vanilla and mix.  Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  Add dry ingredients alternately with sour cream to egg mixture.  Fold in 1 cup of blueberries,(blackberries, chocolate chips or just plain muffins with Streusel on top taste the best in my opinion)  Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.  I usually check them a couple of minutes early to see how they are doing.  Place on a cooling rack to cool.  Enjoy!

If you prefer to make fewer muffins, here is the recipe cut in half:

1 egg
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

4 ounces sour cream

Follow directions above.  This will make about 7-8 muffins.
