1stick (113 grams) unsalted butter,melted and cooled
2large eggs, at room temperature
1teaspoonvanilla extract (if desired)
Add-ins and flavorings of your choice
Coarse or turbinado sugar,for sprinkling (if desired)
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Position an oven rack to the upper third of the oven. Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
In a liquid measuring cup beat together the buttermilk, butter, egg, and vanilla. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir until a few streaks of flour remain. Stir in any desired add-ins, such as fruit or chips.
If time permits, cover the muffin batter and allow it to rest in the fridge for 1 hour or overnight. This will produce more moist, tender, and tall muffins.
Divide evenly among the muffin tin cups. Sprinkle each with coarse sugar, if desired.
Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 16 to 18 minutes.
