Standard muffin recipe
This no-fail base muffin recipe is great for creating muffins with individuality. The addition of wholegrain flour and yoghurt give them a much higher nutritional value, and they're low in fat too!
I hope you'll enjoy creating your own flavour combinations, or try some of the suggestions below.
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix in egg, yoghurt, oil, and milk (or substitute). Mix ingredients gently, until just moist.
Spoon into greased 12-cup muffin tin.
Bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes.
Add these ingredient combinations individually to the base recipe (above) to give your muffins variety:
Lemon & Poppy seed
Add: 2 Tbsp poppy seeds, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp grated lemon zest, and replace milk with 1/2 cup of squeezed lemon juice.
Banana & Chocolate Chip
Add: 1 mashed banana, 1 cup chocolate chips.
Add: 1 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)
Raspberry and White chocolate
Add: 1 cup raspberries (frozen or fresh), place 1 white chocolate melt, or square of chocolate in the centre of each muffin before cooking in the oven.
Add: 1 grated apple, only 1/3 cup milk (apples contain a lot of moisture), sprinkle tops with brown sugar before cooking in the oven.
