This recipe was originally for a loaf cake style but the amount of flour meant it wouldn’t rise much so I thought it might work better as small muffins and it did. I doubled the recipe to make 12 muffins. They don’t rise a lot but filling them about 2/3 of the way will ensure you get a decent result.
There’s no butter either; I used sunflower oil and instead of golden caster sugar, I used organic, non refined coconut sugar which gave the muffins a rich golden colour when baked.
Okay, I’ll start by saying the original recipe turns out lovely and it’s relatively quick and easy, all in a blender basically and produces perfectly good muffins which I have to add, taste unbelievably good! Soooo here’s where my slight fussiness comes in … I felt they were sort of a bit well, spongey? Is that a word?
I didn’t feel they were as light as muffins should be so I wanted to try a different method which I hoped would result in a more familiar muffin texture. Call me pedantic but that’s why I started this blog – to take out the guessing from baking and helping (and hoping) that your bakes turn out perfectly.
