Christmas Muffins

Today is the turn of my Christmas Muffins (click here to print out the recipe) 

This makes a lovely gift, so if there is someone you need a last minute present for just buy a jar and layer the dry ingredients. Then pop a note on the gift tag explaining how to make them! 

Christmas Muffins
300g Self-Raising Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
2 tsp Ground Mixed Spice
25g Ground Almonds
150g Mixed Dried Fruit (Raisins, Sultanas, Mixed Peel, etc.)
100g Dark Brown sugar
2 Eggs
300ml Milk
100g Butter (melted)

Preheat oven to gas 4 (180C/350F)
Combine all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon, mixed spice, almonds. mixed fruit and sugar) together in a mixing bowl
Combine wet ingredients (milk, eggs and butter) in a separate bowl
Pour wet ingredients into the centre of the dry mix bowl, combine quickly, but do not over mix
