Mother Muffins

Very quickly made.

Ingredients used:

1 pint milk.

1 oz. melted butter.

1 yeast cake, Fleischmann's.

1 egg.

1 teaspoon salt.

Flour.

2 tablespoons sugar.

Make sponge with the milk (luke-warm), yeast and sugar, and sufficient flour to make very soft batter. Allow to rest 20 to 30 minutes; then add all the other ingredients, mix until smooth, and add sufficient flour to make a regular muffin batter. Beat for two minutes and bake in hot oven.

Mother Graham Muffins

They are made the same as mother muffins, only omit the sugar, adding 1/2 cup molasses to the sponge instead, and use half and half white and graham flour.
