My American Muffins
8oz S R Flour
1 ½ oz caster sugar
½ tsp salt
2 ½ level tsp baking power
4oz dried fruit …any mixture
4 tbs melted margarine
8 fl oz milk
Prepare a 12 cup muffin pan…either oil and flour or use cupcake cases
Heat oven to 190C, (400F, Gas mark 5) and then melt the margarine in a pan …set aside, but keep warm
Put all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and give them a mix.
Whisk the egg until it is frothy and then stir into to the milk
Pour milk mixture into the dry mix and stir rapidly
As soon as it is mixed, pour in the margarine and incorporate it to create a batter.
As soon as the batter is formed spoon it into the cups or cases …about ¾ full makes the 12.
Bake for about 20 minutes …ovens vary …test at 15 mins with a skewer, if unsure
These are not too sweet ...great for breakfast if you use dried cranberries.... great with a cup of tea if you need a snack ...there was a note to use chopped dates as a variation ...think I must try that too.
