Strawberry Summer Cake from Smitten Kitchen

I made a half recipe to take to a group function. Mine rose a lot and wasn't all that attractive; It would probably look better if made in the pan called for; I think it needs the surface area to place... read more >

Bara Brith muffins : page 263

Really good, and basically Bara Brith in muffin form. I used oil instead of butter in mine.

Lemon Blackberry Muffins : page 51

We grow blackberries in our allotment; they’re abundant so I always flash freeze the extras for baking or jam. I used half einkorn flour and a flax egg for one of the eggs in this recipe. I omitted the glaze this time. Will definitely repeat these.

Mincemeat Muffins : page 86

Very good muffins. I made changes; used einkorn flour for half the flour, added some spices (extra cinnamon, cloves, allspice), used 1 egg only. Baking time stated was too long, should probably be 18-20 minutes. An excellent way to use some extra mincemeat, with changes in bake time I would give it 5 stars.

Vanilla banana whole grain muffins : page 314

Very easy, adaptable recipe. Muffins are grainy without being too heavy. They freeze well, will definitely make again. This recipe contains 2 eggs; I used 1 plus a flax egg substitute which worked well.
