Simple Vanilla Muffins

10 oz all-purpose flour (about 2 cups-shake flour, scoop, level)

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon table salt

1 cup milk (I use whole milk)

1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

for chocolate chip muffins add:

1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1. Heat your oven to 350 and line 15 muffin-pan cavities with muffin papers. 

2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips (if using) and whisk well to combine. In a separate medium bowl combine the milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until well blended.

3. Use a muffin scoop (or a 1/4-cup measuring cup) to scoop the batter into the prepared muffin. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the muffins spring back when touched lightly. Remove muffins to a cooling rack to cool completely (if you can wait that long).

Makes about 15 muffins.
