Making The Batter
In these muffins, we’re using self-rising flour, which cuts down on the number of ingredients to measure out. It adds the right amount of leavening to make these minis nice and fluffy on the inside.
But first, we must begin with softened butter, just until it’s still cool to the touch. It takes only 30 minutes to an hour out of the refrigerator to get there. You don’t want warm butter here. Then, cream it with an electric mixer.
Note: Did you know that keeping baking ingredients near the same temperature gets the best results? That’s one reason I store self-rising flour in the freezer. It’s always ready. The other purpose is to keep it fresher longer.
After the butter is creamed, some tangy sour cream is mixed in, then the flour, just until the thick and sticky batter comes together.
Now, its time for you to decide if you want to bake the Original Mini-Muffins as is or add the flavors of the Garlic Cheese or Black Pepper Bacon. You can always make all 3!
After the ingredients are stirred together, it’s time to spoon a mounding tablespoon of batter into the cups of a mini-muffin pan and bake it to perfection. So Easy!
The Savory Mini-Muffins Result
Honestly, I can’t tell you which one of these little savory mini-muffins I’m most fond of. And my family says the same. That’s why I bake the 3 different flavors at the same time. Some to eat and some to freeze. Then I pass that through the microwave for easy snacking and mealtime sides.
Tell me, do you put your food in the microwave, or do you “pass that in the microwave” like we Cajuns do? Just wondering!
This simple original recipe of 3 ingredients is like magic when it comes out of the oven. I’m telling you, no matter which flavor, you won’t be disappointed! The original is as tasty as can be, the Garlic Cheese is like those famous garlic cheese biscuits, and the Black Pepper Bacon’s burst of pepper adds a robust flavor to the bacon.
