Quick & Easy Muffins

I haven't posted a recipe for ages so I thought I'd share a quick & very easy muffin recipe with you as I made some yesterday. This is a basic muffin recipe to which you can add dried fruit, choc chips or fresh fruit such as blueberries. It is from a recipe book which I bought many years ago writted & published in South Africa - it is filled with many nice muffin recipes.

You will need:

375ml flour
10ml baking powder
125ml sugar
125ml milk
1 egg, beaten
60ml melted butter

Preheat oven to 180C
Stir dry ingredients together.
Add the milk to the melted butter & egg.
Add egg mixture to dry ingredients & stir until just combined.
Leave plain, or add fruit etc (I added dried cherries, berries & sultanas to mine).
Spoon into greased muffin tins & bake for about 20 minutes.

It's quicker that going to the shops to buy some but they go quickly too - only 2 left today!

We are starting to harvest quite a lot of vegetables from the garden now - here are yesterday's courgettes & peas.....


  1. Hi,
    Just found your blog. I never bake muffins but this recipe sounds quite nice and easy.
    You vegetables look super!
    Take care. x

  2. You can't beat a homemade muffin, I love that you don't have to go to all the trouble of creaming the butter and sugar together like you do with a sponge. Great haul form the garden. Hope the birdies are keeping away from those strawberries too!

  3. thanks for the recipe it sounds quite easy to do so i shall have a go!!.. im not v good at the ml's though what is it in ounces's!??

  4. I've been meaning to bake some muffins, but as I've never done it before didn't know where to start... I guess here will be a good start! It doesn't sound difficult, I only need to get a special tin.

    Yellow courgettes look good! Peas as well - I'd happily have some right now :)

  5. Very yummy! I’m just off to the dentist so maybe not a good idea for me today.

    Love Lou xxx

  6. They look good, I could just eat one now. I might give this ago next week when I'm off. Courgettes are good, mine are so small it's hardly worth picking!! No peas as yet but they're coming :)

  7. Mmmm, muffins look good, squash looks good, cookbook cover looks best! LOL!

  8. Courgettes looking fantastic! Itching to get our garden finished so that we may have a vegetable plot in it. The satisfaction of growing your own produce..
