mini muffins

Yields : Around 15 mini muffins

Preparation Time : 30 minutes


Dry Ingredients:

All purpose flour       - 1 cup (Maida)
Baking Soda             - 1/2 tsp
Baking Powder         - 1 tsp
Salt                           - a pinch

Wet Ingredients:

Powdered Sugar       - Little less than 3/4 cup
Butter                        - 1 tbsp
Cold Milk                   - 1/4 cup
Egg                            - 1


  • Sieve all the dry ingredients together. Take a bowl. Add butter and powdered sugar to it. Whisk it well. It will look like Bread crumbs now.
  • Now add egg to it. Beat it well.
  • Add also cold milk to the bowl. Whisk for some time. Now add flour to the bowl in small instances and keep on whisking. Now your Muffin batter is ready.
  • These are the few tips from my side. Note that we are adding 3/4 th cup of powdered sugar and not plain sugar. If you are having plain sugar, powder it and use 3/4 th cup of it.
  • Eggs should not be cold or in room temperature. So take eggs from refrigerator 30 minutes before you start to whisk it. This would be fine.
  • I have added about 1/4 cup of chopped cherries to the muffin batter. you can also add 1/4 cup of tutti-frutti.  If you are using either, just add little all purpose flour to it. Mix it well and then add it to batter at last stage. Mix everything and use the batter. The purpose of adding All purpose flour,is to prevent tutti-fruiti or cherries from sticking to each other.
  • You can also add  1/4 tsp of vannila essence to improve the flavor.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degree celsius in convection mode. Add batter to muffin pan. Remember to fill batter only 3/4 of the pan.. Place the muffin pan in pre heated oven and bake it for 15 - 20 minutes. Insert a tooth pick in the centre of muffin. If it comes out clearly, it shows muffin has cooked.
  • You can also top muffin with Frosting. Enjoy your muffins.
