2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 medium carrot, finely grated
1 courgette (zucchini) finely grated
1/4 cup oil
1 1/4 cup milk
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, the and wet in a jug. Then combine the two and mix quickly, the mix should still be a little lumpy. Spoon into prepared muffin tins, bake at 200 degrees C (400 F, Gas mark 6) for 20 – 25 mins.
I use this basic muffin mix a lot. It’s a great way to get creative with ingredients that kiddos might not eat – mine didn’t even notice the courgette in there, even though they normally are not too keen. You can mix it up – remove the veg and cinnamon, then add whatever you fancy – a tbsp cocoa powder and some chocolate chips, a little cinnamon, ginger and pinch of nutmeg and some grated apple… or whatever you want!
The girls love helping me bake …. mainly I think so they can lick the bowl out at the end!
