Basic Sweet Muffin
Featured Recipe- Basic Sweet Muffin 1-1/2 cups flour 1/2 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup soft shortening 1 egg 1/2 cup milk

Sift together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Add the shortening with a blending fork or pastry blender. Stir in the egg beaten in the milk just until the ingredients are blended. Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full and bake at 400 degrees F. for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Variations: add 1 cup fresh blueberries or 3/4 cup well-drained canned or frozen berries at the last moment; or use 2 eggs and in the bottom of each well-greased muffin cup place 1 teaspoon of honey and a thin slice of unpeeled orange (cut in quarters) for orange-honey muffins.
