Nope, I have never met the muffin man, but I do know the muffin girl. My Mom sent a recipe to us that Zoe was itching to try so today after school I let her loose in the kitchen. We didn’t have all the ingredients in the cupboard but because she was so keen I let her have a go anyway. These are so delicious that I am going to post my Mom’s recipe – thanks Mom for a recipe that is tasty and easy to make and can be frozen for emergencies.
- 1 cup raisins or mixed fruit
- 1 cup(250ml) freshly made tea (still boiling hot)
- 5ml (1tsp) cinnamon
- 5ml nutmeg
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 and a half cups (625ml) flour
- 1 third cup chopped pecans
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- half a tsp salt
- 1 egg
- half a cup (125ml) oil
Oven at 180 degrees.
Put raisins in a bowl and cover with hot tea – allow to cool. Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Beat egg and oil together. Add to raisin and tea mixture. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix. Place muffin cases in a muffin tin and spoon mixture in. Bake about 20 minutes.
These were so yummy that I don’t think there will be any over to freeze. Good job Zoe!!
