Weekly Photo: Muffins Anyone?

| January 25, 2012 | 33 Comments

Our playdate was cancelled, so me made some Yoghurt Muffins. This is a GREAT recipe for young children, as they can help you measure and pour and stir.

kids muffins recipe

Use your yoghurt pot as your measuring device!

  • 1 pot of yoghurt (any flavour)**
  • 3/4 pot sunflower oil
  • 1 pot caster sugar
  • 3 pots self raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pot frozen fruit
**PS although the exact quantity in the yoghurt pot doesn’t matter, please not that the average UK pot is 125g… so… should yours be 250g or more, just make sure you amend the rest of the recipe!

Preheat oven to 180C / gas mark 5 – for approx 15-20min – but keep checking, I take them out when they are golden!

Basically – mix it all up and put in your muffin cases. I like to add the fruit as we add them to the muffin cases, so not to mush it all up!

I originally found this recipe on Mumsnet and have been making it for years now!

We also love cooking and I am slowly teaching the kids to cook! Check out our delicious Curried Carrot Soup!

  1. Love the idea of using the yoghurt pot to measure everything. These would work really well as a group activity too as there aren\’t too many ingredients. They look great with all the berries too!
