12 muffins


  • cooking spray

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 4 tablespoons melted butter

  • ¾ tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ tablespoon white vinegar

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 large egg

  • ¾ cup milk

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk sugar and butter together until sugar is mostly dissolved. Stir in baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add vinegar. Pour in flour slowly; make a small indent in the flour. Crack egg into the indent. Mix batter slightly and gradually pour in milk, mixing until just combined. Fold in Cheddar cheese.

  3. Spoon batter into the muffin cups until 3/4 full.

  4. Bake in the center of the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
