Gluten Free Muffins recipe 1

What kind of muffin would you like?
Would you like...
raspberry?
mixed berry?
strawberry?
doughnut muffins?
date muffins?
cinnamon/sugar coated and jam filled?
pumpkin?
banana?
corn?
or just plain muffin?

Here's for the regular muffin:
1 3/4 cups white rice flour (or brown and white rice together)
1/8 cup potato starch
1/8 corn starch
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder + 1 teaspoon xanthan gum + 1 tablespoon applesauce + 1 tablespoon oil beaten together (or 1 egg + 2 teaspoons baking powder + 1 teaspoon xanthan or guar gum)
1 cup milk (dairy, coconut, almond, or rice), apple juice or water  
1/2 cup room-temperature butter (very soft butter) for berry muffins
                                               or
for regular muffins: 1/4 cup soft butter beaten in with 1/4 cup oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sift together flours and sugar then add the salt. Then, using a whisk, add the egg replacer/egg, milk and butter/oil. Stir gently but deliberately until batter is smooth and medium thickness. Fill greased or lined muffin cups with batter, about 2/3 of the way up. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the toothpick you insert in the middle comes out clean and muffins are golden on the sides.

Now: Here is how to make...
Berry Muffins:
These will have a different method than the regular. 
First:
Thoroughly stir together the butter, sugar and 2 cups blueberries, mixed berries, raspberries or strawberries (fresh or frozen).
Then add the egg or egg replacer, then the milk, then the flour and salt. 
Bake as stated above.

Doughnut Muffins:
Make the regular muffins. When they are in the muffin cups, before you stick them in the oven, sprinkle generous amount of cinnamon/sugar over each one.
Bake as stated above.

Cinnamon/sugar coated and jam filled:
Make regular recipe. Then, when you have prepared the muffin cups, fill only half-way, then put a tablespoon worth of your favorite flavor of jam in the middle. Put more batter over the jam. Then sprinkle generous amount of cinnamon/sugar over each one.
Bake as stated above.

Date muffins:
Just add 1 cup chopped dates to your recipe.
