For the love of muffins

A few weeks ago I had an order for a mixture of muffins. So I  went on the search for the perfect muffin recipe. After trying and experimenting with 7 different recipes with an array of different ingredients including buttermilk and sour cream I  created this recipe.


Basic Muffin recipe
Makes 12 large
250g self raising flour
2 tsp baking power
pinch of salt
175g caster sugar
1 egg
225 ml full fat milk
4 tsp oil
drop of vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180′c.
Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in another bowl. Then add any additions or whatever type of muffin you want to the mix.

- chocolate chips
- Cocoa powder and chocolate chips. (Add 25g of cocoa powder but minus 25g flour. this keeps the muffin moist)
- mixed berries, with this recipe you can add frozen berries,  they are good quality and cheap
- Apple and cinnamon
-  any flavour combinations you fancy

Then add the wet ingredients mix quickly and spoon into muffin cases.
Bake at 180′c for Approx 20 mins.

Easy and delicious! :)

  2. These look wonderful! I’ve been searching everywhere for a great muffin recipe. I can’t wait to try! Also- thanks for liking my blog! I have no idea how you found it, as its only days old! And this is my first comment- so congrats, and you have a lovely blog yourself!

  3. Thanks! Looks really easy..I am going to substitute it with GF flour and see how it turns out. Will keep you posted and send you a pic as well. Or just send you a link to my blog. Thanks a ton for such easy recipes!

  4. These look very moist and scrumptious! I was wondering what your results had been when you used buttermilk – I’d have thought they’d be very moist and fluffy so was looking out for that in your list of ingredients but note you used milk and baking powder instead. Anyway, if you have any comments to share re your other attempts, that would be great!
