Oatmeal Muffins

The Best in Cooking in Westfield is one of the better church cookbooks I’ve picked up in my travels. I found this New Jersey cookbook of the Woman’s Auxiliary, St. Paul’s Church in, of all places, a comic book/science fiction store in Temple, Texas. Mine is a dud, repurposed with three sample covers as a sample for other organizations thinking of a cookbook fundraiser.

This recipe works great with sour milk in place of the buttermilk. I also tend not to keep quick oats on hand, and instead just run normal oatmeal through a mini-prep food processor for a few seconds. As far as I can tell, quick oats are just normal oats but smaller so that they absorb liquid faster.

Either way, these are some of the moistest, tastiest muffins I’ve made or had.

Drop in again soon for another vintage recipe! I’ll have a different recipe every Sunday afternoon throughout the year.
