Flavour options:

  • To make apple and banana, all you do is cut up about 5 apples put them in some hot boiling water with a little brown sugar Wait about 5mins drain them and let them cool Add to your muffin mix. Cut up some banana and add to ingredients. The fruit stays moist and keeps its flavour.
  • Or try rasberries and white chocolate: Make your mix,add your rasberries and all I did was buy a block of Cadbury Dream, smashed it into pieces and added that to the mix.
