Fannie Farmer Commie Muffins

(by Aviva Rosenthal)


2 c. flour

3 t. baking powder

1/2 t. salt

1 c. sugar

2 chicken eggs (or 1 turkey egg)

1 c. milk

1/4 c. melted margarine or butter

1 c. raisins or chopped dried fruit, optional

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Stir all dry ingredients into one bowl, wet into another.

Make a small depression in the dry, then add the wet, without over-stirring.

Stir in optional raisins or chopped fruit.

Pour into greased muffin tins. Do not use frilly paper cups; they are for the weak.

Bake 15 minutes.

Makes 12.

Don’t share with your comrades; they can get their own.
