I have begun to believe that I needed to add muffins and cupcakes to the list of things I just cannot make along with gravy and pie crust. But I tried again and made these pretty little oatmeal muffins. They are easy and taste nice right out of the oven. And, more importantly, they look like muffins!
* 1 cup dry oatmeal
* 1 cup sour milk or yogurt or buttermilk (powdered buttermilk is fine)
* 1 medium egg
* 1/2 cup brown or white sugar
* 1/3 cup oil
* 1-1/4 cups flour
* 1/2 teaspoon each baking soda & salt
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
In a large bowl combine the oatmeal and buttermilk or sour milk. If you have the chance, let it stand for a few minutes, for the oatmeal to absorb some of the buttermilk. Add the egg, sugar and oil. Beat very well with a wire whisk. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder. Mix again, until all of the dry particles are moistened. Do not over beat. It should only take about a 20 or 30 strokes by hand to mix it up enough. Spoon the batter into a dozen well oiled muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
