I jumped out of bed and made these early this morning. Not a normal weekend thing for me to do… don’t worry, the silly season has not affected me like that just yet!
More out of appreciation for a friend offering to drive my daughter to a sports fixture all the way over in Surrey. I figure anyone willing to drive on the M25 ( in the snow!) instead of me having to do it, deserves more than just a thank you… These sweet muffins were boxed up and taken for breakfast on the way.
Great for brunch, school cake sales or just for a morning or afternoon treat. They are deliciously light. These also freeze really wells too, if by chance you happen to have some left! This recipe can easily be adapted to include chocolate chips or other dried fruit…see tip on base of recipe.
- 2 medium eggs
- 100g vegetable oil
- 250g semi-skimmed milk
- 200g golden caster sugar
- 400g self-raising flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 100g frozen raspberries
- Lemon Glaze
- 75g icing sugar
- Juice of half lemon
- Pre-heat oven to 180deg c. I use a fan setting.
- Place eggs into Thermomix bowl, use butterfly whisk, mix 1 min / spd 4
- Weigh in milk and oil and mix 20 sec / spd 2
- Add sugar and salt and mix 10 sec / spd 2
- Sift flour into a separate bowl and then add into mixture in Thermomix bowl, mix 20 sec / spd 1.5
- You will need to then scrape down the sides of the bowl and give a quick hand stir.
- Do not over mix as muffins will go tough!
- Add raspberries and fold in gently by hand.
- Spoon mixture into prepared muffin cases.
- Bake for 20 min until lightly golden and risen. Will spring back when touched.
- To make the glaze place icing sugar into a small bowl, add enough lemon juice to make thick glaze
- Cool muffins slightly before drizzling glaze over the top.
- Muffins are best eaten on the same day.
- TIP- YOU CAN MAKE THIS RECIPE CONVENTIONALLY BY USING A HANDHELD BEATER AND DOUBLING THE THERMOMIX TIMES FOR ALL MIXING STEPS.
- ADAPTING THE RECIPE- you can substitute choc chips or any other dried fruit to the mix, just add an additional 20ml vegetable oil.
