July 4th Recipe: Happy Independence Day!
A Happy 4th of July to all the US readers of the Entertaining Tonight blog. Especially for you I have a July 4th recipe:
Stars and Stripes Muffins
3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen strawberries
4 teaspoons sugar
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffin tin cups or use baking cups.
Place the flour, 1 cup of sugar, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl. Mix a little to combine the ingredients. and make a well in the center of the ingredients.
In a separate bowl mix the milk, oil and eggs together. Slowly add the mixture to the dry ingredients by placing the liquid into the well made in the dry ingredients. Carefully fold together until the dry ingredients are just moistened through.
Divide the batter into two bowls. Add the blueberries to one and the strawberries to the other. Mix them in well.
Fill each muffin or baking cup with batter: six blueberry muffins and six strawberry muffins. Sprinkle the tops with the 4 teaspoons of sugar.
Bake for 23 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. The tops should be light brown. Remove from the tin immediately and cool on a wire rack.
Enjoy your day!
