Ok.. let's see if an Aussie can tempt you with a recipe http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
This is a great plain muffin recipe.

3 cups (12 ounces) Self Raising Flour
1 cup (8 ounces) sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup (8 fluid ounces) milk
3 ounces butter, melted
Preheat the oven to hot (415 deg.F). Lightly grease a 12 hole (4 fl.oz) muffin tin. Sift the flour into a large bowl and stir in the sugar. Make a well in the centre.
Mix together the eggs, milk and butter and pour into the well all at once. Using a wooden spoon, stir until just mixed. Do not overbeat - the batter should belumpy.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin holes. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes, or until puffed and golden. Cool on a wire rack.
VARIATION: For a low-fat muffin, use skim milk and use orange juice instead of half the butter.

I make these muffins often. They are so quick and easy. Usually I add one cup of frozen berries. Either Raspberries, Blueberries or Mixed Berries. I don't change any of the other ingredients.. I just add the frozen fruit. Perhaps the only thing that needs any adjustment is the cooking time.. perhaps a further five minutes but check them first.

Give these a try ladies.. they are super yummy.

love ya all... Angie

I bet these would be good with some fruit mixed in.

hmm my hubby would probably wonder what the heck I was doing! He'd probably ask what I was planning to burn http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I had a very similar recipe that I learned in cooking class in 7th grade. I used to wake up early on the weekends and make these for my family as a surprise. I think I'll try them again, it'll be a good trip down memory lane.

Angie, I plan on trying these this weekend. Do you actually put the berries in frozen or do you defrost them first?

Thanks so much.

Donna since it's allready Thursday and you want to make them soon I'll answer for Angie http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif You can throw them in frozen. (now I don't know if she actually does this or not, but I have and never noticed any ill effects) (well only if I ate too many muffins) http://forum.startascrapbook.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I am not able to make these today. I didn't realise I need Self Rising flour. I only have regular flour in the house. Never used self rising. Is there a way I can use regular instead and add some Baking Soda?
