150g butter, melted
1½ cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
2½ cups self-raising flour, sifted
½ cup caster sugar
Grease and butter a 12 hole muffin tin (or in this case I used a friand tin).
Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.
Whisk the milk with the eggs and vanilla paste.
Place sifted flour and caster sugar into a large bowl, stir to mix together. Make a well in the centre of the mix, then pour in the milk mixture and melted butter.
Stir until it's only just combined - you don't want to over-mix it or you'll get hard muffins. If there are some lumps that's fine.
Half fill the holes with muffin mix, then place a spoonful of your favourite jam/jelly in the centre of each muffin. Top with another spoonful of muffin mix.
Place in the preheated oven and cook for about 30 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Turn out onto wire rack and dust with icing sugar.
Even the muffins are smiling!
