These muffins are so moist and delicious – Jean gave me this recipe years ago and I have used it in so many variations … try it yourself!
Yield: 24 regular size muffins
Preheat oven to 400
- 3 cups flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup margarine
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups mashed fruit
- 2 tsp soda in 2 tbsp very hot water
- 1 tsp vanilla
Combine flour and sugar, then using pastry blender cut margarine into dry ingredients.
Add beaten eggs to mashed fruit, soda/water mixture and vanilla. Stir until well combined.
Gently toss wet with dry ingredients, taking care not to over mix.
Bake in greased muffin tins for 15-20 minutes, just until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
You can use any combination and variety of fruits here and they always turn out well. Use your imagination with toppings also – sprinkle sugar/cinnamon over top before baking or give them a streusel topping!
