"This is one of my favorite muffin recipes because it goes with anything," says Marian Smith of Sandy, Utah. The sweet treats have a crusty top and tender cake-like interior, so they're good for breakfast or as a snack.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a bowl, cream shortening and brown sugar. Add egg, milk and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture just until combined. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 400° for 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
