Add eggs, 1 at a time, whisking after each addition until incorporated, and stir in flour mixture just until blended.
Spoon batter into muffin liners, filling cups to top, and bake in middle of oven 15 to 20 minutes, or until a tester comes out with crumbs adhering. Cool 5 minutes in tins and turn out onto racks. Repeat with remaining batter.
