MuffNuts, Yes they really are called that.

I'm currently on a 6 week cleanse, my challenge set to me by my friend James is to go 6 weeks without a single cheat meal. We're on week two now.. temptation has nearly bit me a few times and lord knows how many time's I considered whipping together this next recipe... Just because I can't have it, doesn't mean I can't share a little deliciousness around me. So here is my ultimate cheat treat recipe, a cross between a Muffin & a Doughnut, I call these ‘MuffNuts’


300g Self Raising Flour
175g Caster Sugar (Plus another 50g for laters
200ml Buttermilk
80ml vegetable oil
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 tsp Cinnamon
50g Butter (unsalted)
1 free range egg
6 tsps Jam (whatever your fav flavour is, I used Raspberry, you could use apple?)

How we do: (Your not gonna believe how simple's this is)

Prepare a 6 tin muffin tray with your muffin papers, you could do this recipe without cases if you like, just grease the tin well so they don’t stick.
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
In bowl one: sift in your flour and then mix in your sugar
In bowl two: mix your oil, buttermilk, egg and vanilla
Mix bowl one & two together just until its combined, don’t over mix.
Spoon 3/4s of your mixture into your cases, make indents and spoon in a tsp of Jam into each then using the remainder of the mixture cover the Jam.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Whilst your muffins are baking, melt your butter in a saucepan and mix in your cinnamon.
Using a pastry brush coat the top of your cooked muffins with melted butter then roll onto the remaining caster sugar (Vanilla sugar works really well here)
& that’s it! Brew a coffee and enjoy your MuffNuts.
