2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup milk
1 cup mixed berries (theoretically you could put 1 cup of apples, chocolate chips, or whatever you like in your muffins--also, frozen fruit works too I just put mine in the microwave to thaw a bit)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups (I used a household spray bottle with extra virgin olive oil, helps cut down on CFCs and waste to dispose of).
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
In a separate bowl, cream together sugar and shortening (if you do not know what cream means, it means mash it together with a fork until it is all the same consistency).
Stir the flour mixture into the sugar mixture alternately with the milk.
Add the fruit and stir in.
Pour batter into prepared muffin pan (every time I read muffin pan it makes me want to sing the nursery rhyme, do you know the muffin man lol).
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. (I did 20 minutes)
