Fantastic Friday Food: Courgette and Carrot Muffins

I was in this great little cafe in London the other day and along with a lovely fig, feta and chicory salad I had a vegetable muffin. It was so yummy so I thought I would hunt down a recipe to make at home. This one is from the Sainsburys website.

300g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
75g grated carrot
75g grated courgette
75g very finely chopped spring onions, (drained of any liquid)
½ tsp ground nutmeg
300ml tub soured cream
300ml semi-skimmed milk
1 large egg
100g unsalted butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 200?C, fan 180?C, gas 6. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases. 

Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in the carrot, courgette, spring onions and ground nutmeg and stir until combined.

In a jug, whisk together the soured cream, milk, egg and melted butter and pour into the dry mixture. Stir quickly to combine, but be careful not to over-mix

Divide between the muffin cases and bake in the centre of the oven for 25 minutes. Remove and allow to cool slightly in the tin. Serve warm.

Happy Weekend All
