    Here’s some muffin recipes that you guys asked for:(I’ve put in brackets what I use here in France)
    Basic recipe
    9 oz (250g) plain flour (Farine ménagère/type 45)
    3 tsp baking powder (levure chimique)
    1/2 tsp salt
    3 oz (85g) white granulated sugar
    1 egg
    8 fl oz milk
    3 fl oz (90 ml) corn oil (huile de tournesol)
    N.B the recipes all give an option of oil or the equivalent in melted butter (3fl oz oil = 3oz butter) I only ever use oil so won’t waste time typing it all out each time.
    Prepare muffin tins with cases & oven 190/200C/gas 5/6
    Sift flour, baking powder & salt in one bowl & stir in sugar
    Separate bowl beat egg add milk and oil
    make well in centre of dry ingredients, pour in liquid.
    Carefully mix together only until all flour gone – Do not over stir (it is normal for it to be lumpy)
    3/4 fill cases bake 20-25 minutes. Easier to remove if left to cool in tin for a few minutes
    Variations:
    Choc chip – add 3oz (85g) choc chips to dry ingredients
    Coffee walnut – substitute 8fl oz milk with 6fl oz cooled strong coffee + 2fl oz milk and add 20z (60g) chopped walnuts to dry. Sprinkle tops with mixture of 2oz (60g) brown sugar with 1/2 tspn cinnamon before baking.
    Lemon – Add 1 tspn finely grated lemon rind to wet ingredients and glaze immediately after baking with mix of 3oz (85g) icing sugar + 3-4 tspns lemon juice + 1/4 tspn lemon rind
    Here’s the other recipes, I won’t go into all detail of conversions etc, use those above
    Apple spice
    9 oz plain flour – 3 tspns baking powder – 1/2 tspn salt – 11/2 tspns mixed spice – 4oz sugar – 5 fl oz milk – 3 fl oz oil – 6 oz any type apple, peeled, cored, finely chopped (I grate mine) – handful sultanas
    Method as above adding apple to wet ingredients, sultanas folded in at end.
    Gingerbread
    10 oz (280b) plain flour – 2 tspns baking powder – 1/2 tspn bicarb (carbonate soudre alimentaire) – 1/2 tspn salt – 1/2-1 tspn ground ginger (gingembre moulu) – 1/2 tspn ground cinnamon (cannelle) – 1 egg – 3oz sugar – 3 fl oz oil – 6 tablspns black treacle (imported from UK) – 2 tablspns honey – 6 fl oz water
    Method as above, will need slightly more stirring and will be a bit thinner than other recipes
    Enjoy!!!!
    Sorry if any errors got a viewer coming at 11am tidying to do!! :-)

    I have finally got around to making these muffins, and I have to say they are really delicious, light and fluffy. I had some dried cranberries in the cupboard so chucked those in together with a few sultanas. I turned the temperature down a few degrees as I have a fan oven. So I will make them again, not too often! :rose: :rose:
