Toffee Fudge Muffins

Okay, forget that New Year's promise of dieting for a moment, and have a toffee fudge muffin on me :0)  The little fudge chunks at the bottom of the muffins turn that bottom bit into a pseudo treacle sponge - delicious!

255g plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
110g cinnamon sugar
100g bag of baking mini fudge chunks
1 egg
240 ml milk
90ml vegetable oil (or melted butter)


Place all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly to ensure they are free of lumps etc.  Then pop in the fudge chunks, and coat in the dry ingredients.

Thoroughly mix together the egg, milk and vegetable oil.  Pour into the dry ingredients, and barely mix - the idea is not to work the dough in any way, but to 'just combine' everything together.  Spoon into muffin wrapper - if using the kind I show here, do make sure you pop them into a holed baking tin to ensure they stay together!

Bake for 20-25 mins at 190-200oC.  I tested mine with a cake skewer, and left them to rest for 5 minutes in the 'holey' tin, to let them 'settle' a little before popping them onto a cooling tray.
