Hey Artsy Teens,
I’m finally on holidays which means I can fully register the fact that it’s officially Christmas time!
Am I the only one who has this realisation less than a week before the 25th of December? Because honestly, even though everyone else has been in full on holiday-mode since November 1st, I’ve been so caught up in exams, Netflix and being antisocial that I’ve only just started getting into the Christmas mood.
Anyways, no school means I have plenty of time to focus on blogging, last-minute gift buying/ making and most importantly, festive food!
On that note here’s a recipe for delicious Christmas muffins that I hope you’ll all enjoy.
Ingredients – Makes 10
300g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground mixed spice
100g soft light brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tbsp milk
2 tsp demerara sugar / sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 200’C/400’F. Grease muffin tin or line with paper muffin cases.
- Mix flour, baking powder, mixed spice and brown sugar in a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, mix together the mincemeat, egg, melted butter, buttermilk and milk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
- Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups, then sprinkle the tops with demerara sugar / sprinkles .
- Bake for 18-20min until risen and golden. Cool in tin for 10 min then turn onto a wire rack.
I didn’t know you could do such a thing with mincemeat! I’m gonna have to make these!
