This is an amazing universal muffin recipe - I love it because it lets me use what's in the house or what's cheap at the time, without having to find ingredient-specific recipes
Additions, Spices, Jam, and Toppings are all optional. Additions can be used in any combination, up to 1 1/2 cups total. If using more than 1 cup wet additions, decrease milk to 1/2 cup
If using a cooked grain, separate the egg, add the yolk to the batter, beat the white until stiff and fold into the batter
Combine dry ingredients, then mix in wet ingredients until just combined, the batter should be lumpy. Grease muffin tin and fill cups 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes
If using jam, fill cups half full with batter. Add 1 teaspoon jam and top with 2 tablespoons batter

The fat can be reduced or omitted by using a 'wet addition'. Do you use an equal amount of the 'wet' if you are going to substitute it for the 'fat'? Example: 1/4 Cup applesauce instead of 1/4 Cup vegetable oil?
