Introduction

This is actually a very simple adaption of Nigella's own Jam Doughnut Muffin recipe from How To Eat, but I wanted the flavour of Welsh Cakes but in a more... cake-y form. Hence these.

  • Preheat the oven to 190c/ gas mark 5

  • Mix the flour, sugar and mixed spice in a bowl. There is no need to sieve as with all muffins lumps don't matter.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Stir in the currants and then spoon the mixture into each muffin case.
  • Decorate each muffin with a few green dinosaur sprinkles.
  • Bake in the oven for about twenty minutes or until the muffins have risen and are golden on top and firm to the touch but still a little springy.
  • Take the muffins out of the oven and the muffin tray and put on a cooling rack for a few minutes before eating.

  • Additional Information

    The dinosaur sprinkles probably shouldn't be considered as an essential part of the recipe, but that's how I made them and they worked first time so they shall remain an important part for me.
