Walnut Muffins


2 medium free range eggs
125ml vegetable oil
250ml semi-skimmed milk
250g golden caster sugar
400g self-raising flour (or same quantity plain flour and 3 tsp baking powder)

1 tsp salt

100g Roasted walnuts
1 Banana
1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon


Here’s how:


Pre heat the oven to 180C fan.
Line a 12 hole deep muffin tray with paper cases.
In a large bowl beat 2 medium eggs lightly with a handheld electric mixer for 1 min. Add 125ml vegetable oil and 250ml semi-skimmed milk and beat until just combined then add 250g golden caster sugar and whisk until you have a smooth batter.
Sift in 400g self-raising flour and 1 tsp salt (or 400g plain flour and 3 tsp baking powder if using) then mix until just smooth. Be careful not to over-mix the batter as this will make the muffins tough.
Stir in 100g chocolate chips or dried fruit if using.
Fill the muffin cases two-thirds full and bake for 20-25 mins, until risen, firm to the touch and a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean. If the trays will not fit on 1 shelf, swap the shelves around after 15 mins of cooking.

Leave the muffins in the tin to cool for a few mins and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
