Melt In Your Mouth Muffins

These are really great muffins.  They taste so delicious.  My family loves them.  My boys eat them up and ask for them often!  You can make them several different ways for a variety or just eat them plain.  I even tried them gluten free today and they were still great, no joke!  I will include a link for that recipe too at the end.

Muffin Mix                                                                                                                    

(Melt-in-Your-Mouth Muffins)
8 C. All-purpose Flour                                   2 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
3 C. Sugar                                                       1 Egg  
3 Tbsp. Baking Powder                                  1 C. Milk
2 tsp. Salt                                                        ½ C. Butter or margarine, melted
2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
For Mix:  In larger bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Mix well.  Put in large airtight container.  Label with date and contents.  Store in a cool, dry place.  Use within 6 to 8 months.  Makes about 11 cups of muffin mix.

For Muffins:  Preheat oven to 400°.  Put liners in muffin pans.  Put 2 ¾ cups muffin mix in medium bowl.  Combine egg, milk, and butter in small bowl.  Add all at once to muffin mix.  Stir until mix is just moistened; batter should be lumpy.  Fill prepared muffin liners ¾ full.  Bake 18 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.  Makes 1 dozen muffins. 

For variation, fill liners only partway; add a teaspoon of jam or jelly.  Finish filling liners.  Can also mash up a banana or two and add to batter with some chopped walnuts; add cup of blueberries or chocolate chips.  Bake as usual.

These are just 96 calories if you make them plain and still as low as 131 calories if you add chocolate chips to them!  Nice!
