Muffins are always a crowd pleaser, easy to whip up and the perfect match with a cuppa! You can substitute the plums with any other stone fruit or berries. Tinned fruit would even work if fresh fruit is unavailable. Megan Copland from Red Kitchen created this delicious recipe.
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp custard powder
1 cup milk
¾ c oil
1 small apple, small dice
12 whole preserved or tinned plums
½ cup sliced almonds
Prepare your muffin tin with baking spray and pre heat oven to 180°C fan bake.
Mix dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls.
Add apple to dry ingredients.
Gently fold wet and dry ingredients together.
Put a tablespoon of mix into the bottoms of each muffin tin, then place a quarter of a plum on.
Add some more mix to just cover the plum, then repeat.
Put half a plum on the top of each muffin.
Sprinkle the top of the muffins with sliced almonds and raw sugar.
Bake for approx 15 minutes until cooked.
