Ok so this recipe belongs to my lovely niece who asked me to try her muffin recipe and I was pleasantly surprised!!!
Its a basic muffin recipe that you can modify in many ways and make it your very own! Here goes…
Basic Muffin Recipe
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar (I used 1/2 cup but I think you can use between 1/4 cup to 1 cup depending on your preference)
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup milk
3/8 cup vegetable oil ( I used Lemon infused coconut oil but if you choose to use fresh lemon zest don’t use the lemon infused coconut oil)
1 tsp essence/extract (whatever your preference – mixed, lemon, vanilla, banana, pear, coconut, pine etc)
1 cup of any additional/optional ingredient (I used fresh blueberries but dried or frozen can work as well just dust them in some flour before adding)
1 tsp of lemon zest can also be added inside of the lemon coconut oil ❤️
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin pan or loaf pan and set aside. Mix all wet and dry separately and make a well in the dry and pour in wet. Mix thoroughly. Dust blueberries or whichever fruit (fresh, dry or frozen) in flour and add to batter. Pour batter into muffin or loaf pan and bake.
Muffins – 30mins, Loaf 45mins or until toothpick is clean.
Cream Cheese Glaze
2oz cream cheese (softened)
3 tblsp powdered sugar
Juice of 1/2 of a lemon
Whisk the ingredients together and drizzle over cooled muffins or loaf.
Hope you enjoy! A special thank you to my lovely niece for sharing such a lovely recipe, I love you darling
