Dairy Free Muffins

Sweet Muffins

2 Cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup milk I use rice milk for the milk but have used soy and regular.
1/3 cup canola oil
2 eggs whisked

TIP ~ If just doing plain you will need to add a little more milk or it will be too dry.

1. Preheat the oven (190-200 degrees Celsius).
2. Sift flour and add sugar in 1 bowl. In another bowl put whisked eggs, milk, and oil. Add wet to dry, using a large metal spoon to mix until just combined. I use a big serving spoon for this or the mix goes smooth like a cake mix and the muffins are very heavy and don't rise.
3. 3/4 full the muffin pans and cook for 18-20 min. Leave in pan for 10-15 min before turning out.

Banana use two mashed.
Pear 1 1/2 pear mashed.
Choc chip I use chopped up dairy-free chocolate.
Jam 1⁄4 teaspoon of jam in the middle. Put 1⁄2 mix in, put jam in middle then add extra mix on top.
Honeycomb on top or mixed into the mixture.
Coconut Small amount of coconut is nice.

I use muffin cases for all my muffins and they nearly all get frozen to be put in lunch boxes.

Savoury Muffins

2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup milk (or milk substitute)
1/3 cup canola oil
2 eggs

Variations (add any of the following to muffin mix)
Cheese and Bacon

The savoury ones are nicest on the day they are cooked or warmed in the microwave.
