Anyone who knows me knows that I love baked goods!  Here is a super quick and easy muffin recipe that can be used with heaps of variations - choc chip (which is the photo above), berry, banana & spice and many more!  It's the Stephanie Alexander basic muffin mix and is always a winner!

220g self-raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup milk or buttermilk
1 egg
3/4 cup vegetable oil

Preheat over to 180 degrees C and line a muffin tin.  Mix flour and caster sugar and any other dry ingredients (like chocolate chips, nuts, spices, dried fruit).

In a separate bowl, combine milk, eggs and oil and whisk together lightly.  Add any other wet ingredients (like fresh berries, grated carrot or apple or mashed banana).

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, pour in the wet mixture and mix lightly together.  Spoon into muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned on top.

Cool on a wire rack and serve.

Hi there! I've worked it out at 174 Calories per muffin - and that's using full cream milk and without any extra ingredients added :-)
