A few days ago I posted my favorite do it yourself biscuit mix.
Now you are probably wondering where is the recipes for using this mix. Since it is a cool enough to bake today because of all the rain, I made some chocolate chip muffins. It is a simple easy recipe that can be mixed up in a hurry as well as being low cost. This is a basic recipe and raisins, dried fruit, baking chips and nuts can be used.
You know those little packages of muffin mixes in the grocery stores that usually cost a little over a dollar. You can make muffins just as easy from your own mix. The recipe is a simple basic inexpensive that you can use when you are out of ideas and out of money. I used a traditional muffin pan that is a little smaller then a cup cake pan. Normally cup cake liners don’t fit into them but I found the liners I used in some mark downs that was small enough to fit in the muffin tins. I used them to dress up the muffins for this post. Traditionally you don’t use liners for muffins. Also if you are using a cup cake pan, you may not get as many muffins.
Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 2 cups baking mix
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3/4 cup water or milk
- 1 egg beaten
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 – 3/4 cup chocolate chips
Note: This is a basic recipe and raisins, dried cranberries, nuts and baking chips can be used in place of chocolate chips.
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Prepare muffin tins with vegetable spray or use paper liners.
Mix by hand in a large bowl. Add all ingredients at once. Mix with a fork only until dry ingredients are moistened. Lumps are needed to give the muffins their texture. Spoon in muffin tin about 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until muffins spring back when touched on top.
