Plain Muffins

Well, this one is a goody. i've always found muffins dry and uninteresting just by themselves. i'm sure a lot of you out there love it warm from the oven but i have to have a topping. as the title goes this one muffin is plain and sweet; something that could be had deliciously with a mug of hot chai. i made a topping of rum sauce and chocolate sauce for kids which is also posted. i can't remember exactly how many muffins i got from this one mix. i should have jotted it down then and there. this was last on my menu and Thomas made a second mix that came out equally well (he told me to write this down here ;). here's the plain muffin recipe.

butter-125 gm
powdered sugar-150 gm (2/3 cup; less if you want your muffin moderately sweet)
all-purpose flour-225 gm (11/2 cup)
milk-1/4 cup
vanilla essence-1 tsp
baking powder-3 tsp

Beat butter and powdered sugar till nice and fluffy. add eggs to it and continue to beat. strain the flour and baking powder together and add to the butter-egg mix. then add milk and vanilla essence and stir to combine thoroughly. scoop one tbsp each into the muffin tray and bake at 160 C for 20 min.
