From our Grammy Mull’s recipes. This is an old recipe. I’m 60, and my mother is 83 years young. And my Grammy has long passed. We keep her in our hearts by using and sharing her recipes.


2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons shortening, melted
1 cup buttermilk


Preheat oven to 350°.

Mix dry ingredients in bowl. Mix milk, egg and shortening. Add all at once to dry ingredients. Stir quickly just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into greased muffin tins, filling each cup at least ¾ full.

Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with apple butter, butter, honey, jams/jellies or gravy. Enjoy!
