Basic MUFFIN recipe

I have been using this recipe for over 20 years and to be very honest with you, I don't know where it came from. It is hand written into a recipe book that my MUM gave me many years ago, and it was given to her by my brother. So there's all sorts of odd writings in it. I shall pass it on to my grand daughter when the time comes.



2 cups S.R. Flour.

3/4 cup Sugar.

2 Eggs.

3/4 cup Milk.

1/2 cup Veg Oil.


Place all wet ingreds into a bowl and mix to combine.

Then put the dry ingreds in and only mix for a short time,

so as not to over work the flour.

Now this is where you can get really creative!

Add cocoa for choc muffins.

Or dried fruit.

Choc chips.


The list is endless.


Fill muffin cases or tin to 3/4 full.

Place in a preheated oven 180c,

for 20 mins or till golden brown.
Leave to cool before icing.

I did, cocoa and coconut, with choc icing and topped with coconut.

Cherry and cocoa, with melted white chocolate.

and triple choc, with butter choc icing and choc sprinkles.

Don't forget dried fruit, cinnamon and apple, ginger, and your favorite choc bar chopped up into it is good too. Often do Mars bars or cherry ripes. Enjoy every-one. Sally
