I have to say that I love making muffins in my Thermomix! And to be honest, I virtually always use this Thermomix basic muffin recipe. It’s so versatile and you can add any flavourings you like. A few of my faves are:

  • raspberry and white chocolate chunks
  • chocolate chip
  • stewed apple and cinnamon
  • blueberry
  • tinned peaches
  • chopped dates and pecans
  • strawberry and a sprinkle of coconut
  • raisins

The trick to getting your muffins perfect is to not over-mix them. Over-mixing will lead to dense muffins (and no-one wants that!!). I also love to sprinkle a little bit of raw sugar over the muffins just before baking as it gives them a gorgeous crunch when cooked. Totally optional – but seriously yum!!

I love eating these muffins plain and simple on their own, but you can always add a cream cheese frosting, a sprinkle of icing sugar or even a dollop of yogurt on the side.
