Muffins

or

Basic Fruit Cake

Ingredients:

  • 4 oz Butter/Margarine
  • 4 oz Sugar
  • 4 oz Self Raising Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 oz Mixed Fruit (can be more if you like)
  • Little milk

Method:

Cream butter and sugar
Mix in eggs one at a time
Fold in Flour
Mix in fruit and if you like, ½ tsp mixed spice
Add milk little by little to get a dropping consistency.

Next is one of 2 different things:

Single Cake

Grease a ring cake tin. Put mixture into tin and make it roughly level. Cook at about 180°C for about 25 minutes or until a knife/skewer inserted into cake comes out clean.
Leave to stand for about 5-10 minutes, then turn onto wire rack to cool.

or

Muffins

Grease some ovenproof ramekins
Half fill with mixture.
Cook at about 180°C for about 25 minutes or until a knife/skewer inserted into cake comes out clean.
Leave to stand for about 5-10 minutes, then turn onto wire rack to cool.

This recipe can be varied with fruit/chocolate/coconut etc

Its very versatile. I use virtually the same recipe in the microwave, cooking for about 5 minutes but does not brown.
