Choc chip muffins

I made muffins for school cake sale today.

The ones I made were coffee and date and they were easy to make. For the uninitiated though here's an even simpler recipe, Choc chip muffins:

250g plain flour NOT self raising flour
3 teaspoons of baking powder
Pinch of salt
85g granulated sugar (or caster if you have it)
85g choc chips
1 egg
240ml milk
90ml corn oil

Oven on to gas mark 5-6 or 190-200oC (or about 160-180oC for a fan oven).

Muffin paper cases in a muffin baking tin. This recipe makes about 10 muffins.

In a large bowl sift flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in sugar and choc chips and put to one side.

In a seperate bowl beat egg with a fork, stir in milk and then corn oil.

Pour liquid ingredients into dry mixture. Stir until ingredients just combined (scrape sides of bowl as you stir. Batter should be lumpy with no flour visible.

Fill muffin cases about 3/4 full or a bit more. Bake for 20 minutes or until tops are light brown and spring back when pressed gently.

Best served warm.
