Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F (or 205 degrees C).
Grease the little muffin tins very well with butter, so the batter will not stick!
Gather the 'dry' ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
*9 ounces all purpose flour.
*3 ounces sugar.
*one half teaspoon of salt
*3 teaspoons of baking powder
Gather the 'wet' ingredients in a DIFFERENT bowl.
*3 Tablespoons of melted butter
*10 ounces of milk
Using a whisk, beat the egg gently, add the milk, and then the melted butter, make sure they are well combined.
This is most important step, add the dry ingredients to the wet. Mix this VERY GENTLY, just until it comes together. The batter should be lumpy, not smooth. It is good to have lumpy muffin batter, it means the muffins will rise and be fluffy!
Ok, now that the batter is mixed, you may add some fruit. You can slice some strawberries, or use blueberries, banana, any kind of fruit. I recommend any of these. You can even add nuts, spices or chocolate chips! I think for the first time, you should just add some fruit.
So have your fruit, and measure out 1 cup of it, and very gently fold the fruit into the batter, you still don't want to overmix!
Now put your little muffin cups on a pan to keep them together, and spoon the muffin batter into the little pans. You should fill them only three quarters of the way, they will get bigger in the oven. I like to sprinkle a little sugar on the top before I bake them, you should do this if you want!
Bake! put muffins in the oven, and set timer for 12 minutes. when the timer goes off, turn the pan, and set the time again for 12 minutes. (total baking time is 24 minutes)
Now, take the muffins out. poke a toothpick in the middle of the biggest one, and if it comes out clean, they are done! they should be nicely golden brown, on the top also. Eat them now!
