  • 500ml flour
  • 15ml baking powder
  • 2ml salt
  • 175ml brown sugar
  • 250ml fruit mince
  • 2ml finely grated orange zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 250ml milk
  • 60ml vegetable oil
  • 5ml vanilla essence


Preheat the oven to 200°C and line your Le Creuset Muffin Tin with paper or foil liners.

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.

Stir in the brown sugar, fruit mince and orange zest.

Whisk together the egg, milk, oil and vanilla essence in a separate bowl.

Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add the liquid all at once. Use a spoon to lightly stir everything together. Do not overmix, the batter should still be lumpy.

Divide the mixture evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.

Best served fresh from the oven with lashings of butter.
