    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / gas mark 4. Line the muffin tins with paper cases.
    2. Whisk the egg in a bowl. Add the milk, melted butter, sherry and the Christmas pudding.
    3. Sift the flour, baking powder and mixed spice into another bowl. Add the caster sugar and mix well. Make a well in the centre.
    4. Add the wet ingredients and mix together until a soft batter forms. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
    5. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
    6. While they are cooking, make the sherry butter icing. Mix together the icing sugar and the butter. Add enough sherry, about 1 tbsp, to just soften the mixture and make it spreadable.
    7. Once the muffins are cool, spread the icing over the top and serve.

    Someone was definitely in the Christmas sherry when writing up this recipe. There is no flour in the ingredients and am not sure what 1/2 a mixed spoon is!?!  -  16 Dec 2010


    Something else. Sounds good but I'm not sure what a mixed spoon is  -  16 Dec 2010
