Simple Muffin

Note: this is a scheduled post. By the time it is published, I'm hiking the routes of Mama Carrie's favorite hill with a suspicious eye for cobras and pythons.

Dry Ingredients
100g organic high-protein flour
50g organic maize/corn flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp organic sifted muscovado (dark brown) sugar

Wet Ingredients
10g unsalted butter
50g cream cheese
5ml vanilla extract/essence
1 cup organic soy/goat milk

In a mixing bowl, sift the dry ingredients with the exception of sugar to remove any lumps.
Preheat oven at 160C
Line a 12 hole muffin tray with 8 paper cases.
Cream butter, cheese and sifted sugar until combined.
Gradually mix the wet and dry ingredients until a semi-dry consistency has been formed. Add more flour if the consistency is too wet, and a little milk if it is too dry.
Pour mixture into the tray and smooth the surface with a wet flat spatula.
Bake for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle icing sugar to decorate.
Can be eaten for breakfast, coffee break or afternoon tea.


  1. i love a muffin anytime of the day.

    btw..cobras and pythons? *faint*

  2. Let me know the results if and when you've attempted the recipe. =) Yeah, cobras and pythons lurking underneath the dry leaves and waiting for the right moment to scare anyone. *shudders* I'm even having goosebumps thinking about it.

  3. I love Muffins!! They're really good!!
    ...can you send one here to me??
    Thank you!! :-)

  4. Laura: yes, and it's easier to steal one muffin from the fridge (if you don't mind stone-cold muffins, that is) than refrigerated cakes. =D

    Sure, I wouldn't mind sending it to you if the post office gives its thumbs up and if the muffin doesn't spoil on its long, lonely trip to Italy. *winks*

  5. from reading the ingredients, i can sense this is gonna be the healthiest muffin ever! but it still sounds deliciously tempting :D

  6. Sean: It is definitely one of the healthiest muffin in town. You should really give it a try during your free time. Believe me, it's really tasty. xD I stole two muffins almost immediately after it exited the oven and cooled down.
