Oatmeal Muffins on a Rainy Day




It may be gloomy on the outside, what with cloudy, wet skies and cool temperatures, but that makes it a perfect morning to whip up a batch of Hubby's favourite Oatmeal Muffins.

Crispy on the outside with a hint of chewy spiced oatmeal on the inside, these are MARVELOUS with a fresh cup of coffee or tea.




Oatmeal Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Grease 12 medium muffin cups.

SIFT TOGETHER
1 cup flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of cloves
Pinch of salt

STIR IN
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar

BEAT TOGETHER
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
or melted shortening

Add liquid to dry ingredients and stir only until combined.  (Batter will be lumpy).  Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for around 18 - 20 minutes.

  2. Yum! My husband went through a muffin stage when he wanted muffins for breakfast everyday. Now days we usually have oatmeal, but boy does a muffin ever sound good! PS, we might be kindred spirits. I've found quite a few through blogging. It's so much fun to find people the appreciate old movies, books and gardens. And just plain pretty things!

  4. Thanks for the recipe! They sound wonderful, wish I could reach through the computer and take one off of the plate! I can almost smell them. It is very hot where we are today, close to 100. As much as I would like some fresh baked goodies, I don't think I can make myself turn the oven on. It's one of those hot Georgia days when even, with the air conditioning on you have to move kind of slow or you get overheated. Enjoy your rainy morning to the fullest and have a great day! Delisa :)

  6. I've already printed out your recipe. As soon as you mentioned crispy and chewy you had me. Sounds like they have some real "character" to them, as my Dad would say.

  9. There's nothing better than a muffin straight out of the oven to warm up the day. :) These look delicious.
