Very Vanilla Muffins
What would you do if you bought a tub of Vanilla Yogurt by mistake and you don't like flavoured yogurt at all??Bake Vanilla muffins!!I found this recipe in Recipezaar.
This recipe has vanilla yogurt and vanilla essence as the main ingredient.The aroma of the vanilla filled the whole house while baking...It was spongy,light and smelled divine..I added extra sugar to the muffins and sprinkled little bit of sugar on top of each muffin.It gave a lovely brown colour to the muffin tops.
All purpose flour - 1 3/4 cup
Sugar - 1/3 cup plus 1 Tbsp for sprinkling on top.
Melted Butter - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1 beaten
Vanilla flavored yogurt - 1 cup(can also use plain yogurt and increase the amount of vanilla essence)
Vanilla essence - 1 Tbsp
Baking Powder - 2 1/2 tsp
Baking Soda-1/4 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Preheat oven to 400º. Line 12 muffin pan cups with paper liners.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, 1/3 cup of the sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl, stir together egg, yogurt and vanilla, pour over dry ingredients. Add melted butter and stir just to blend (do not over mix). Quickly spoon batter into paper liners, filling each muffin cup to the top. Sprinkle with remaining 1 tbsp of sugar.
Bake muffins about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove muffins to wire rack and let cool 10-15 minutes before serving.
