Cakes: MUFFIN MANIA! Thanks Schmitty
1 cup skim milk
1 egg
4 teaspoons margarine -- melted
1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons granulated sugar

In larger bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, and stir just until flour disappears; do not overblend. Spoon into muffin tin and bake 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean and muffins are golden brown. Cool on rack for 5 minutes; remove from pan and serve hot.

Bake a Better Muffin: Spray muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray; fill tins two-thirds full with batter; add a few tablespoons water to the empty spaces to keep empty cups from burning. For easier removal, allow muffins to "rest" in tins a few moments after baking. To reheat muffins, wrap loosely in foil, then heat in a 450F oven about 5 minutes.

Notes: Makes 12 Servings. Use stick margarine, non-diet. *The zest of a lemon, a lime or an orange is the peel without any of the pith (white membrane). To remove zest, use a zester or the fine side of a vegetable grater
