Typical energy values per 100g: 1451kJ/346kcal.
  • 150g butter
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 2 happy eggs
  • 250g self raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 30g ginger, finely grated
  • 120ml milk
  • Mix the butter and caster sugar together until they form a creamy paste.

  • Add the happy eggs and beat with a whisk until the mixture is light and fluffy; this is the key to keeping the texture of your muffins light.

  • Gently fold in the flour, salt and spices. Add milk as required to keep the mixture moist.

  • Lightly oil your muffin moulds and pour the mixture in, right to the top. Place in a preheated oven at 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4 for approximately 20 minutes.

  • To check whether they're cooked, the top of the muffins should spring back when lightly touched. Put them back in the oven for a couple of minutes if they're not quite ready.

  • For some fun, sprinkle with icing sugar and popping candy.
