I demonstrated this recipe on Ireland Am on 18th June 2018

This is such a flexible recipe. The basic muffin mix can be flavoured any way you wish…with blueberries, banana, chocolate chips, lemon zest, whatever is your favourite. The unbaked muffin mix will keep in a container in your fridge for up to 3 days

Makes 6 large muffins or 12 small.

  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 2tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Bread Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

  • 75ml vegetable or sunflower oil
  • Drop of vanilla extract
  • Filling of your choice – mixed berries, lemon zest and poppy seeds, raspberries and white chocolate chip, chocolate chip, mashed banana
  • optional topping of your choice – porridge oats, nibbed sugar, crumble mix

– In a bowl add all the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, bread soda & salt. Mix well together
– In a separate bowl or jug combine all the wet ingredients: 1 egg(beaten), buttermilk, oil & vanilla extract.
– Pour the wet mix into the dry flour ingredients and mix just until the flour is incorporated. Don’t overmix!

The base muffin mix (before you add the filling) will keep in a covered container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Just stir it again before adding the filling.
