Here’s Bert at an outdoor performance of The Wind in the Willows (or The Wind in the Willies, as my phone desperately wants it to be called).
When I asked him if he enjoyed it he said, ‘yes and no’. The muffins were a yes though.
Makes 12 muffins
240g plain flour
160g golden caster sugar
1.5 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
75g sunflower oil
4 tablespoons plain yoghurt
250g fresh mango, diced (about one of those lazy, ready prepared punnets – you’ll need to dice it a bit more finely though, into 1cm cubes, more or less).
Flaked almonds to scatter on top.
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5/ 190 degrees and grease your muffin tin or fill them with muffin cases.
Mix together the dry ingredients and then stir through the beaten eggs, oil and yoghurt. Mix in the diced mango (or diced tinned peach, if you prefer). Spoon carefully into the muffin holes and sprinkle with flaked almonds. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
Bert ate six of these.
