Strawberry and White Chocolate Muffins - In the Bag

Strawberry and White Chocolate Muffins

The 'In the Bag' challenge this month was strawberries and white chocolate. Having been to my local PYO this weekend and coming back with a huge punnet of strawberries (as well as a daughter with a very red mouth and stained clothes) - I decided to develop a new muffin recipe incorporating the chosen ingredients.

These are delicious and made even better with a glass of cold milk alongside.

Ingredients: makes 8 muffins
300g Plain Flour
2 TSP Baking Powder
150g Golden Caster Sugar
50g Butter, Melted
225ml Milk
1 Egg
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
100g Strawberries, diced
75g White Chocolate broken into pieces.

Preheat the oven to 200c and line a muffin tin with cases
Step 1: Sieve flour and baking powder into bowl and stir in sugar.
Step 2: Mix together butter, milk, egg, vanilla extract.
Step 3: Combine dry and wet ingredients and gently stir in strawberries and white chocolate (try not to over mix). Fill muffin cases.
Step 4: Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.

TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
