Bonfire Muffins

Bonfire Muffins: Recipe

You will need:
150g butter
100g caster sugar
2 eggs
250g self-raising flour
Pinch of salt
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cinnamon
30g ginger (finely grated)
120ml milk

1.Mix the butter and caster sugar together until they form a creamy paste. Add the eggs and beat with a whisk until the mixture is light and fluffy; this is the key to keeping the texture of your muffins light. Gently, fold in the flour, salt and spices. Add milk as required to keep the mixture moist.

2.Lightly oil your muffin moulds and pour the mixture in, right to the top. Place in a preheated oven at 180°C/gas mark 4 for approximately twenty minutes.

3. To check whether they’re cooked, the top of the muffin should spring back when lightly touched. Put them back in the oven for a couple of minutes if they’re not quite ready.

For some fun, sprinkle with icing sugar and popping candy.
