Strawberry & custard muffins

11 Feb

When in doubt, bake. And when you don’t want to faff around with lining cake tins or decorating cupcakes, bake muffins. Quick, simple and perfect size for sharing – what’s not to love? These little numbers have a surprise in the shape of fresh strawberry & custard in the centre, elevating them from morning tea fare to, ummm, exciting morning tea fare.

Makes 12


2 cups self-raising flour

1 cup plain flour

1 egg

1 cup of milk

90 g butter, melted

12 strawberries, hulled & halved

1/2 cup caster sugar

1/4 thick shop-bought custard

1 teaspoon cinnamon PLUS 1/2 teaspoon, extra

2 tablespoons brown sugar


Preheat oven to 170-ishC.

Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin wrappers.

Mix together the extra 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon with the brown sugar in small bowl, set aside.

Mix flours, sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl with a metal spoon. In a jug stir together egg, milk and butter then add to bowl with other ingredients. Stir until just combined, do not over mix.

Fill each wrapper until half full then add a generous dollop of custard and 2 strawberries. Add more mixture to cover but do not overfill.

Sprinkle with extra cinnamon and brown sugar then cook for 20-ish minutes.ImageImageImage
