English Muffins

English Muffins, ideal for breakfast, or for Eggs Benedict, are known in the UK, or certainly always were as muffins.  That name has been hijacked somewhat by the rather delicious sweet muffins these days.  So for the purposes of this post I shall talk about English Muffins, even though it sticks, slightly, in my craw […]

Christmas, Muffins

Mincemeat Muffins

Before Christmas I made some mincemeat, and used it for my mince pies etc, traditional at Christmas.  But I had a jar left over, which wasn’t a problem as it keeps for up to 6 months in the fridge, if in a sterilised, airtight container.  So for my first bake upon my return from a […]


Strawberry Muffins

I had some strawberries that needed to be used before they went past their best.  So I came up with the idea of some Strawberry Muffins.  I little research found me a few recipes but they were all rather different.  So I came up with my own, basing it on what I had read. One […]

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins

For a simple bake, that tastes very good indeed there is nothing like a Chocolate Chip Muffin.  The difference with this version is that it has two types of chocolate, firstly some very good cocoa powder in the batter and, secondly, 70% dark chocolate chips. The batter is very loose so care is needed when […]


Bran Muffins

Bran Muffins was a request from my niece who had eaten them some years before, from a mix available in Canada.  However we were unable to find such a mix in the UK, so I searched for an appropriate recipe, online.  I found one that looked very interesting at Joy of baking .Although I show the […]
