I’ve been working on a set of muffin recipes that are easy to do and I can’t get wrong to make lunch boxes cheaper and healthier. My first attempt at healthy banana and sultana muffins have become pretty well liked and so I branched out. It’s not wildly different but these are pretty yummy and contain some fruit, even if the fudge pieces do up the calorie count a fair bit.
250g self raising flour
125g golden caster sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
3 tbsp sunflower oil
125ml skimmed milk
2 grated apples
160g cooking fudge chunks (this is 2 packs, you can do less for less fudgyness)
Heat the oven to 190c and grate the two apples. Chuck apple and everything else into a big bowl and stir it roughly. By this I mean don’t stir it too well, rather than be mean to it.
I tend to do these in cupcake cases rather than muffin ones so they make about 20 smaller bites of cake.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. They rise really well and go a golden brown when ready.
All I’m really going to say is that “fudge muffins!” is now my expletive of choice, but that is no reflection of how they taste or how easy they are to cook
