Makin' it Monday - muffins

Another easy as pie recipe - or easy as muffin!

Muffins are a great snack, they are very versatile. You can use white flour, wholemeal flour - you can add all sorts of goodies - fruit, nuts, flavourings - and you can even make savoury ones.

This is my basic recipe.
Today I'm making peach and almond muffins. Often I make blueberry (as I have a wonderful supply of frozen berries) or lemon and coconut ones.

Heat oven to 190 degrees C.

Prepare your muffin tin, oil your tin or line with paper muffin cases.

  In a large bowl combine 2 and 1/2 cups of self-raising flour (or 2 and 1/2 cups plain flour sifted with 5 teaspoons of baking powder)
1 cup of sugar (I used raw sugar, but you can use white sugar or brown sugar)

Chop 1 cup of peaches.
Add to flour with 1/2 cups chopped nuts (I used slivered almonds)

Mix together with a spoon.
Then add 1 cup of milk, 1 beaten egg and 1/4 cup of vegetable oil (of your choice)

Mix until the dry ingredient are moistened, do not over mix - it doesn't need to be perfectly smooth.

Spoon into your prepared muffin tins.

Cook for 20 mins until risen and browned.

Let cool as much as you can before you eat and enjoy!

Other ingredients could be date and walnut, fig and hazelnut, banana and choc chips, raspberries and white chocolate, grated apple and cinnamon, pear and pecans, - oh, the combinations are endless!
What are you favorite muffins?
