Easy-to-Make Muffin Recipe

In this article, I will show you how we made these fluffy muffins from scratch. It is a basic muffin mix and then we added different fillings, including orange jelly, peanut butter, chocolate pieces and raspberry jam.

We made these with different fillings because my 83-year-old mother was baking them with her 4-year-old great-grandson Quinn. He had great fun and was delighted to be helping his grandma. It did not take too long for them to cook, so he was able to see the end result and enjoy eating some, too.

Step 3: Add Optional Extra Flavours

  1. Using a spoon and fork scoop out enough to fill the muffin cases half way in each one.
  2. Add two teaspoons of jam, marmalade or peanut butter to the top of the mixture in each case.
  3. Do the same with the broken pieces of chocolate.
  4. Cover with more muffin mixture so each paper case is two thirds full.

Step 4: Time to Bake

  1. Put in the oven to cook for 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. At 200 C – 400 F or Gas mark 6.
  3. Test they are ready by inserting a knife into one of them. If it comes out dry, then they are cooked. If it is slightly wet, then cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Take out the tray and leave for 5 minutes before you remove each muffin.
  5. Leave to cool down before eating.
