Choc Chip Raisin Yoghurt Muffins

These choc chip muffins that I made recently were a hit at breakfast.  Not only were they easy to make, they were moist as I added more yoghurt than what was called for in the recipe.  This is a very simple and straightforward recipe that will yield consistent good result.





Recipe for Choc Chip Raisin Yoghurt Muffins

 Ingredients
  • 9 oz plain flour
  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or veg. oil (I used melted butter)
  • 125 - 140 ml plain yoghurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 80 gm raisins
  • 80 gm choc chips
  • a pinch of salt
Method
  1. Sift flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a mixing bowl.  Add in sugar and mix well.
  2. Whisk eggs, oil, yoghurt and vanilla till well mixed.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, mix till just combined.
  4. Scoop (I used an ice cream scoop) batter into paper lined muffin pan, about 3/4 full.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven @ 200 deg.C for 20 to 25 mins. till golden brown. Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  6. Leave muffins in pan to cool.  Serve warm.
  7. Yield :  12 Muffins

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.
