About the bake

Perfect for your picnic lunch box or an afternoon treat – these mini muffins are just over a mouthful. This Mini Muffin recipe makes Muffins just like you'd get in the supermarket with the added satisfaction of making them yourself. In our experience they are a big family favourite, quick to make and easy to clean up after too.

      Preheat the oven to 200°C (fan 180 °C, gas mark 6). Line a mini muffin tin with paper muffin cases.

    Very dry and a bit tasteless without the vanilla that others suggested. I added some milk to the second batch but still, not a great recipe. Also, 20mins is way too long. I think maybe 12/13mins gives a better result for mini muffins.

    I think the batter was mixed a bit too much, I also added some vanilla extract and also put chocolate melts in the middle of my muffins for a gooey centre. Haven't tried them yet, but 8 minutes in and the most delicious aroma is coming out of the oven. Super practical. Super easy.
