One of the best things about being on leave at home is that I can pretend every day is a weekend day and that means loads and loads of *baking* (Becka does a happy dance). I fancied something different for breakfast today but didn’t fancy the washing up that accompanies a fry up or fecking pancakes. Again! So I decided to make some muffins as according to Celia Brooks Brown “nothing beats a batch of home-bakes muffins”. They’re in the oven as I blog so I can’t deny or confirm that fact. Yet. This is a variation of her muffins recipe from New Vegetarian.
For about 10 muffins you need:
2 cups plain flour
6 tbsp oil
1/2 cup yogurt (use a runny one not the 0% total I used as it’s too thick)
1/2 cup milk (as yogurt was too thick)
1 cup vanilla sugar
1 1/2 cups frozen cherries
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
Lob everything into a bowl and mix lightly. Scrape into muffin cases and bake at 180 degrees for about 20 mins till risen and golden brown. Enjoy with coffee and fresh OJ. Yum.
