It's quite an adaptable recipe, and I use various flavourings, depending on what I have in the cupboard.
This morning I made raspberry muffins. Fresh or frozen raspberries would have been wonderful, but I didn't have any, so I used raspberry jam.
You will need the following:
1.1/2 cups of plain flour
2/3rds cup of sugar
10g baking powder (we have 10g sachets here, but I think a teaspoon is about the same)
1/4 tspn salt
1 large or 2 small eggs
120g butter or margarine...melted
1/4 cup milk
Suggestions for flavouring:
2 mashed bananas...or the equivalent amount in any other mashed fruit, or jam.
3/4 of cup of choc chips, or sultanas, or nuts, or anything else you can think of which will compliment the other flavouring.
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix all the other ingredients in a smaller bowl and add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix well. Spoon the mixture into a muffin tin or cases, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 180 degrees. This mixture makes about 12 muffins.
I used the raspberry jam today without any nuts, choc chips, etc...and they are delicious.
