  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

For Finishing:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 24 mini-muffin cups.

  2. Mix sugar, melted margarine, and nutmeg for muffins in a large bowl. Stir in milk, then mix in baking powder and flour until just combined. Fill the prepared mini muffin cups about half full.
