About seven years ago, my husband planned a weekend getaway to a wonderful bed and breakfast for us. The Old Mulberry Inn Bed and Breakfast is still open for business in historic Jefferson, Texas. One highlight was the wonderful food, and before leaving I purchased their cookbook. It is a collection of their fifty favorite B&B recipes. Today I thought I would share their Oatmeal Muffins. (If you ever want to visit historic Jefferson, Texas, make sure you stay at the Old Mulberry Inn. It was wonderful!)
- 1 c. flour
- 1/4 c. sugar
- 1 c. oats, quick or old-fashioned, uncooked
- 1 T. baking powder
- 1/2 t. salt
- 3 T. vegetable oil
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 c. nonfat milk
Sift into bowl: flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Stir in the oats. Add vegetable oil, beaten egg, and nonfat milk. Stir only until dry ingredients are just moistened. Fill greased, medium-sized muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes. Serve hot. Makes a dozen.
Variation: Add 1/2 c. raisins, chopped dates or nutmeats with the oats.
(When making these muffins, today, I added Craisins instead of raisins, and left out the nuts due to my 3 year old prefering no nuts.)
