My daughter Hayley loves cooking and bakes Muffins for her school lunch all the time. These ones she made last night are so moist and delicious and I love the flavour combination she used, you could smell cinnamon all over the kitchen when she took them out of the oven. You can use any combination of fruit or nuts or leave the nuts out if you prefer.
Strawberry, Apple & Walnut Muffins

Mix sifted flour and castor sugar, add cinnamon .
Combine milk, egg and oil in a separate bowl and whisk lightly

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, pour in liquid and mix lightly. Spoon batter into patty pans until two thirds full, place a couple of walnuts on top and push into the mixture slightly.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned on top.
Remove from oven, cool for a minute then turn onto a wire cooling rack.
