Scrumptious Christmas Muffins!

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.

Mincemeat muffins

Ingredients – Makes 10

300g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp ground mixed spice

100g soft light brown sugar

175g mincemeat

1 egg, lightly beaten

175ml buttermilk

1 tbsp milk

2 tsp demerara sugar / sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 200’C/400’F. Grease muffin tin or line with paper muffin cases.
  2. 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.
  3. Spoon the batter into prepared muffin cups, then sprinkle the tops with demerara sugar / sprinkles .
  4. Bake for 18-20min until risen and golden. Cool in tin for 10 min then turn onto a wire rack.
