Hot Cross Muffins

Hot Cross Muffins

Just for something a little different, that you can make yourself or make with the kiddies for Easter!


1.5 cups choc chips or raisins
2.5 cups self raising flour
½  tsp bicarb soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
⅔ cup vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
200g caster sugar
80g icing sugar


Preheat oven to 200 degrees. And line a muffin tray with paper cases. Add flour, bicarb soda and spices into a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl place oil, buttermilk, eggs and sugar and whisk until well combined.
Combine wet ingredients with flour mixture and choc chips/raisins and stir with a wooden spoon.
Divide the mixture among the muffin cases and bake for 20 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Place 2 tbs sugar with 2 tbs water and simmer on low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Brush over the top of the muffins to give them a nice glaze.
Sift icing sugar into a bowl and add just enough hot water to make a thick paste. Using a piping bag, draw a cross on each muffin and allow to set.

Cut open and serve with butter or eat whole! Devour with Easter eggs and tea.

Happy Easter!
