Homemade Muffins

Holy, hecticly, homemade muffins Batman! It happened. I didn’t think there would be any time to make these babies, but I’m so glad I was able to! We all have busy schedules, but this one is like “Holy cow! Stop the car, or I’m going to jump out!” busy. I think we’ve just about peaked our ability to pack everything in scale.

I’m starting to realize that this lifestyle is very common with families that home-school. It’s a busy life, but as a family we’ve never been so happy. Really. When the kids were in public school, Michael was at work and I was either working or going to school. We were all just as busy, but busy away from each-other. At night we would sit at the dinner table to enjoy dinner or homemade muffins, and the kids would only tell me what they wanted me to know about their day. It was like a crazy Law & Order interrogation just to find out what they were learning in school.

I would find out what was really going on with them once I had a parent-teacher conference once a year, and honestly it wasn’t impressed with what they were learning. Most of the curriculum was below their learning capabilities. This led to the children being socially distracted and academically under stimulated. I knew my kids had way more potential than what was being utilized.

I can’t begin to emphasis how much my kids are learning in our home-school curriculum. You can write out a sentence for my 12-year-old, and she can label and diagram sentences. She knows what a predicate nominative or object compliment noun is… and I’m pretty sure I never learned this in school. She can tell you what the four types of verbs are! Oh, and that’s just the beginning of it. My 14-year-old can tell you all of that and when he’s done, he’ll translate it to Latin. You must think I’m kidding, but no… and we’re having so much fun doing it! Hands down… my kids have learned more this year than they would have learned in the next 4 years of public school.

The best part of it all, is they love it. We are having so much fun! On a normal school day, we are done with school around noon, and plan the rest of our day doing whatever we want. We’ve been able to add on many extracurricular activities because of the extra time we have. We now have friends over on the weekday… it’s crazy… and it’s OK. The kids that do the same curriculum as us sometimes come over and just hangout… doing school together while eating homemade muffins. Seriously people… I’m living the dream!

  1. 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/3 cup sugar
  3. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. 1 egg
  6. 3/4 cup milk (or almond milk)
  7. 1/4 cup cooking oil
For Topping
  1. 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  3. 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  4. 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. For the topping, in a small bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  2. In a medium size bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, beat the egg then add milk and oil. Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture all at once and stir just until combined (batter will be lumpy).
  4. Grease the cups of a standard 2 1/2 inch muffin pan or line with paper cups. Spoon in batter until the cups are approximately two thirds full with batter. Sprinkle Topping over muffin batter.
