Plain and simple Vanilla Muffin

Sometimes, all you really want is a simple, delicious plain muffin.
In my case, my 2 year old seems to dig for this simple and healthy muffins and she brings them to school at the nursery for her snacks and small lunch at the nursery and everyday  she b rings back an empty lunch box so I think I'm doing right here :)
Anyhow, baking for kiddies snack we must always pay attention to the sugar and butter content for it to be healthy snack for the LO :)


1 cup (125g) self rising flour
3/4 cup (180 ml) milk
1/2 cup (100g) of brown raw sugar
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1-2 normal egg(s)
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons (30g) butter or vegetable based butter like Olive or sunflower  margerine
1. Preheat to 170ºC/325ºF.

2. You need a bowl and a fork to mix with for start then add flour, milk, sugar, and baking powder and mix for 1 to 2 minutes. 

3. Then add the butter and egg(s). and mix for 1 to 2 minutes then  add a tsp of vanilla.

4. Prepare your baking tray. Grease the muffin tray or silicone muffin moulds

5. Pour mixture evenly onto the greased muffin tray or mould.

6. Put in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until the surface  slighty browed or more.

7. Take out then leave to cool before serving.

NOTE: To have a different flavour of muffin you can use the same recipe just add in the berries or fruits and also cocoa for a a chocolate vanilla muffin. It's all up to you. You can double the portion for this plain muffin and then put in whatever flavour you want after that.
