Who doesn't love muffin? Small, cute bite sizes cakes. Simple to prepare, easy to bake and deliciously satisfying. From my Baking: A Commonsense Guide, I would like to share a basic muffin recipe which can be very versatile and usable in all situations. In this instance, I've added mixed fruits (those you would use for fruit cakes) in this muffin recipe. You may also wish to add coffee mixture or mashed bananas for different flavour combinations which you can enjoy for breakfast, snack or lunch.
310g self raising flour
125g caster sugar
2 lightly beaten eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g melted and cooled unsalted butter
70g mixed fruits
Preheat oven to 200deg C.
Sift flour into bowl and add sugar. Stir through the flour.
In a jug, mix well the milk, eggs and vanilla extract. Pour the liquid into the flour mixture and mix well.
Add butter. Stir thoroughly.
Add in mixed fruits and mix well.
Pour batter into 12 muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 min.
