In honour of national farriers week I thought I would share some super simple baking recipes that make the perfect gifts!
Are muffins more your thing? I love this recipe and you can make them as regular muffins or I like to make them as mini muffins. 🍊 (why is there no cupcake/muffin emoji?)
You will need:
- Either melted butter or cooking spray to grease your muffin pan
- 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 1/2 cups self-raising flour
- 3/4 cup caster sugar
- 125g butter, melted
- 2 eggs, whisked lightly
- 2 teaspoons of orange rind
- 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
- Icing sugar to dust
Preheat your oven to 190 degrees and grease your muffin pan with melted butter or cooking spray. Combine the flour and sugar in a large bowl, add the poppy seeds, milk, butter, egg, orange rind and juice and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. (If you over mix your muffins will be tough). Spoon your batter into your muffin pan and bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean (mini muffins will cook faster than larger ones). Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Once cooled dust with a little icing sugar!
