Cinnamon Swirl Muffins
What else is there to do on a rainy Sunday, other than bake? These are my favourite muffins, I've been making them for years. They're from a book called 'Muffins Galore.'
250g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
110g caster sugar
85g melted butter
2 tsp cinnamon
75g soft brown sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 170. Line a muffin tray with paper cases. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl and set aside.
2. Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Add the egg, milk and butter and combine.
3. Put a tablespoon of the mixture into the bottom of each paper case. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar and spoon over more mixture, then more sugar etc. Finish with a layer of batter and then use a fine skewer to swirl the mixture to create a marbled effect.
4. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until golden brown. Leave to cool and then turn out onto a wire rack.
I used the paper cases my colleague got me for my birthday. They look very coffee-shop-esque and are absolutely delicious! X Bo
