Quick and Easy Muffin Batter

 2 ½ cups oil
 4 cups sugar
 8 eggs
 2 tablespoons vanilla
 2 cups buttermilk
 7 ½ cups flour
 2 tablespoons baking powder
 Pinch salt
  1. Beat oil and sugar until mixed well.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, until mixed well.
  3. Add vanilla and buttermilk until mixed well.
  4. Add flour, baking powder and salt until mixed well.
  5. You can bake the entire recipe, or divide the batter into two or more portions as it will keep fresh in the refrigerator for several days. If you will store a portion, use a plastic container that has a cover, or cover with a layer of plastic wrap.

Crumb Topping for Muffins

 1 ½ cups brown sugar
 1 ½ cups flour
 1 cup (2 sticks) melted butter
 1 tablespoon cinnamon
 ½ tablespoon nutmeg

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Crumb topping will also keep fresh for several days. Again, use a plastic container that has a cover, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Baking Muffins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

One of the simplest ways to scoop out muffin batter is with an ice cream scoop. You can use the muffin batter as a base recipe and make a variety of muffins by portioning out muffin batter into a bowl and then adding your favorite ingredients. Add one of the following, or mix complementary tastes to form a creative blend. As muffin will rise during baking, only fill muffin cups ¾ full. You can use fresh or frozen berries, but everything needs to be diced into small pieces. All ingredients will need to be added sparingly as the content and liqudity will affect the consistency of the batter. Have fun! Experiment!
