Recipe - Mini Muffins

Whilst the rest of this blog is, admittedly, a bit "do-gooder", the recipes section is here for a very different reason - BFTF appears to be utterly incapable of keeping track of the recipes that it has tried, especially the ones that seemed to work.

So putting them here will hopefully ensure that BFTF can find them when required.

I suppose you could call it "Virtual Victuals". . .

Mini Muffins

500ml milk (semi skimmed of full fat)
250ml oil (vegetable or sunflower)
250g brown sugar (Fairtrade, if possible)
2 eggs, beaten (Free Range - there is no excuse for buying anything else)

500g self-raising flour
250g chopped fairtrade milk chocolate (or chopped glace cherries, or raisins)

Place milk, oil, sugar and eggs in a bowl and stir together for a couple of minutes.

Add Flour and mix until no free flour remaining. DO NOT OVERMIX, the mix should remain lumpy

Add Chopped chocolate and mix for about 30seconds.

Pre-heat oven to 200C

Use fairy-cake baking trays (and paper fairy-cake cases), fill cases about 80% full. The amounts above should give about 38 mini-muffins (which is annoyingly 2 more than the spaces in three standard trays)

Place in oven and cook for about 20mins (until nicely browned on top).

Remove from oven, take cases out of tray and allow to cool for 5-15mins then remove cases and your mini-muffins are ready.

Eat within a few days.

BFTF usually makes these in combination with 250g biccies. For some reason, blokes seem to prefer the muffins while the biccies seem to be a hit with the sisters. Don't know what is going on there, but there you go. Incidentally, you can use the same approach as described here (admittedly for tuna) when buying fairtrade chocolate.
