Christmas Muffin Tutorial

Here is your step by step guide on how to make Christmas Muffins.

Preheat the oven to:

Fan Assisted: 200ºC

Regular Oven: 210-220ºC (Approx)

Fahrenheit: 400F

Gas Mark: 6

Line a Muffin Tin with 12 cake cases.


Sift into a Mixing Bowl:

280 Grams / 10oz Plain Flour

1 Teaspoon Mixed Spice

1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder

1 Pinch of Salt

Stir in:

115 Grams / 4 oz Soft Brown Sugar

I used a fork to ensure you remove any sugar lumps.

Pour in a Jug:

100ml / 3.5 Fl oz Milk (I used Semi Skimmed)

Then in a separate bowl whisk:

2 Medium/Large Eggs

6 Tablespoons Sunflower Oil

Give it a quick blast with the electric whisk.

Then pour the egg/oil from the bowl into the jug of milk and whisk again for about 25 seconds.

Put to one side.

Now make a well in the bottom of your mixing bowl:

Pour in ALL the milk/egg/oil mix.

Add the 200g / 7 oz sweet mincemeat. (This is mincemeat used in mince pies.)

Fold the mixture together with a spatula until combined.

Spoon the mix into muffin cases and place in the middle of the oven for approx 18-20 mins until well risen and golden.

Once baked, remove from oven.

Leave to stand for 5 mins then place on a wire rack to cool.

Finish with a light dusting of icing sugar.
