Balsamic Baked Fig and Hazelnut Muffins

25 Apr

That be Stephanie Alexander’s basic muffin recipe that actually I can’t find a link to so here it is:

230g self-raising flour

130g caster sugar

3/4 cup milk

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1 large egg

Extra dry ingredients like spices, oats, nuts and nut meals etc

Extra wet ingredients like fruit

The method is to mix the wet ingredients together in a jug and pour into mixed dry ingredients. Tough, huh? Then bake for 25 mins at 175 degrees.

This time around I added some hazelnut meal and some delicious figs I had leftover, they were baked in the oven with brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. I’m not really a fan of fresh figs to be completely honest but I LOOVE them baked.

A dab of fig jam and a few drops of balsamic on top of each baby before they went in the oven gives a little glaze to the top.
