I came up with a base muffin recipe some time ago, I like it because it’s light but has a great consistency, very much like the American style muffins you get in the bakeries and supermarkets but without any of the additives. It’s actually really easy and opens up a world of possibilities, as it did with this little beauty. When I first made these I presented one to my mum. She cried. I asked her why. She said they were the most perfect muffin she ever tasted. She’s daft like that. (Love you mother). So, off you go, create a little piece of muffin perfection, according to my number one critic. She has to be, for a long time I wasn’t brave enough to try any of these things and she was numero uno guinea pig!
You can choose whether to go with the normal sized muffin cases or double up on the ingredient amounts and use those US style muffin cases.
