This is the muffin you make when you haven’t got any fancy ingredients in the cupboard, when you only have half an hour to spare and when considering these factors, you have no business making muffins in the first place. No buttermilk needed here people, none of that pesky baking powder AND baking soda nonsense. Just some good old fashioned flour, butter, milk and eggs ( plus a couple of extras). We’ll go with a simple apple muffin for the recipe, but in Notes on the Recipe, you can read on for ideas on how to vary the flavours. The secret to good muffins is DON’T OVER MIX once you have added the wet ingredients. Just mix it enough to combine it all.
