    Break the egg into the small bowl. Beat the egg a little with the fork. Add the remaining 3 ingredients. Stir until well mixed. Pour into the hole in the flour mixture. Stir just until the flour mixture is moistened. Fill the muffin cups to the top with the batter.

Turn the oven off. Transfer the muffins from the pan to the wire rack to cool.
