As Salaamualaykum, dear readers, first things first I know you are probably wondering ‘’but this looks like a cupcake!’’ well apparently you are among the few percentages of people who think that way too. Muffins are another class of tasty pastries that are absolutely easy to make. I was amazed at the simplicity of this recipe after making it for the first time and I am sure you would too. Once you master the art of this classic muffins recipe I am about to share, you can, later on, build on it by adding different toppings/fillings of your choice like Zebib (Raisins) Strawberry, Blueberry, Cinnamon, Chocolate Chip and so on. So let’s get started.


  • Flour – 2cups
  • Sugar – 3/4cup
  • Salt – 1/2tsp
  • Oil – ¼ cup
  • Egg – 1
  • Vanilla – 1tsp
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Baking powder – 1tbsp

NB; Please remember to use a standard measuring cup and spoons for precision purpose.


  • In a bowl sieve the flour, add the sugar, baking powder, salt and mix together.
  • In another bowl, whisk the egg, add the oil, vanilla and milk.
  • Pour the wet ingredients (in step 2) into the dry ingredients and mix together, but do not over mix.
  • Grease the muffin pan (cupcake pan) and pour the muffin batter into it, place in the oven and bake till it’s done.

You know it’s done when you insert a toothpick into it and it comes out clean (with no bits of the muffin batter sticking to it).

For questions;
