Alton Brown's Old-School Muffins
Author: Leona Konkel
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • a pinch salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1-2 cups ‘bits and pieces’ (nuts, berries, chocolate chips, or any combination thereof - Alton suggests only up to 1 cup of chocolate chips)
  1. Place baking rack in center of oven and heat oven to 375F. Grease/flour muffin tin. 
  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Combine sugar, oil, eggs, and yogurt. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix just until batter comes together. Add add-ins. 

  3. Divide batter between the 12 muffin cups. Cups should be full. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into bottom of muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and immediately turn muffins onto their sides so that steam can escape.
