A very old recipe for classic,
not too sweet muffins.
This is a very old recipe from my mother. It creates small, slightly dense muffins (as they should be!). These are not too sweet and don’t have a cupcake-like texture like many muffins seem to have today. This recipe is honestly best when done by hand, so I don't recommend using a mixer. In fact, I've had best results when I just stir it all together with a fork; this keeps it from getting over mixed. This recipe is also great as it produces very few dishes to clean; if you play your cards right, you'll only need to wash 1 large bowl, 1 fork, 1 teaspoon, 1 measuring cup, and 1 muffin pan.
