Spice Muffins

2 cups sifted flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tblsp. baking powder
2 tsps. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/4 nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup veg. oil
1 egg
2 tsps. vanilla

Into large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices.  Set aside.

In a small bowl mix milk, oil, egg, and vanilla.  Add milk mixture to dry ingredients; stir just until moistened.  Spoon batter into 12 paper lined (or greased and floured) muffin-pan cups,*  filling two thirds full.

Bake in 400 degree oven for 25 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Serve warm or cold.  Makes 12 muffins.*

*We got NINE small muffins out of this, NOT 12.  Contrariwise, the spice cupcake recipe did make the 18 cupcakes it said it would.

Comments:  Although the spray we use to oat the pans works REALLY well, it does make a mess all over the kitchen. Be careful where you spray.
