The Grab-N-Go Muffins That Make Breakfast A Breeze


Women's Health |

All hail the breakfast muffin!

We should all have a container of four-week muffin mix in our fridges. It makes a quick and nourishing breakfast. The ratio of candied peel to raisin to bran makes a difference to the flavour.

Serve with lashings of butter and marmalade.

Breakfast Muffins

Ingredients

– 4 eggs
– 1 cup sunflower oil
– 340g white sugar
– 1 litre milk
– 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
– 250g nutty wheat flour
– 400g cake flour
– 200g digestive bran
– 2tsp bicarbonate of soda
– 250g dates, chopped
– 140g raisins
– 80g sultanas
– 100g candied peel
– 80g dried apricots, chopped

Method
1. Beat the eggs, oil, sugar, milk and vanilla essence together until all the sugar crystals have dissolved.
2. Place all the other ingredients into a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
3. Cut the egg mixture into the dry ingredients with a knife until combined. Ensure you don’t over-mix – this will result in odd-shaped muffins.
4. This mixture freezes very well. When required, defrost and bake in an oven at 180°C for 20–25 minutes. The time will depend on the size of the muffins.

Makes 16 large muffins.
