Just perfect for morning tea, in fact the greedyboys tell me they are good for anytime.
Hmm, not sure that is a compliment, as they say that about 2 minute noodles !!
Not really a muffin maker really but I like the odd cakey thing..
But l would then like to eat ALL the cakey thing regardless of it being a 24 inch cake , so I decided muffins were probably a good choice…
This recipe too, is nice and easy, quick and no fuss.
Just what all greedygirls like:)
So what do you need?
A big spoon to lick the batter:)
2 cups of pure flour
4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
3/4 cup of sugar
100g melted butter
1/2 cup of milk
2/3rds cup of passionfruit pulp or you can be cheating and use the sweetened passionfruit you get at the supermarket.
Zest of 1 lemon and juice of lemon.
2 cups of icing sugar for icing
30 g butter for icing
A little milk if needed for the icing.
Pre heat the oven to 190 celsius.
Place 12 mid-sized muffin cups in a muffin tray.
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl and combine together.
Melt the butter, allow to cool a little and add in the egg and milk.
Mix together, not over doing it, then add in the passionfruit and lemon zest.
Combine and then spoon into the muffin cups.
I like to fill it to about 3/4 but up to you…
This does 12 mid-sized muffins nicely or 6 texas sized ones:)
Place in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until slightly golden and springs back on touch.
Whilst it is cooking, make your icing.
Place sifted icing sugar into a bowl, add in softened butter and lemon juice, mix well until creamy and lump free.
If it is a little dry, then add a little mix.
You want quite a stiff icing if possible but it’s no biggie, if you add a little bit much milk.
Cover icing with gladwrap and I put it in the fridge.
Remove muffins from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes and then gently place on rack until cold.
Give the icing a wee stir and then its ready to rumble!!!
When cold, place icing on the muffin…
Allow 30-60 minutes minimum for icing to set and then you can eat one….
Nah, you can eat one when ever you like, 5 minutes after iced is best:) with lovely hot black STRONG coffee.
ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY.
