Favorite Sweet Muffins w/Peach Cantaloupe Butter

This recipe is from my Go To Favorite Cook Book.  Betty Crocker's Cookbook.
 I have been the proud owner of this treasure since 1972...a wedding present from my Mom.

I decided to make the Surprise Muffins (See below) and added 1 teaspoon of the Peach Cantaloupe Butter from "Little House Living"  

Sweet Muffins
1  egg
1/2 cup Milk
1/4 cup Salad Oil
1-1/2 cups Gold Medal Flour*
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease bottoms of 12 medium muffin cups (2-3/4 inches in diameter)  Beat egg; stir in milk and oil.  Mix in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened.  Batter should be lumpy,

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.  Immediately removed from pan.

12 muffins

If using Self Rising Flour, omit baking powder and salt.

Surprise Muffins:  Fill muffin cups only 1/2 full; drop 1 teaspoon jelly in the center of each and add batter to fill cups 2/3 full.

I did add a dash of nutmeg just because I like it!
