SSB Lemon Curd Muffins

And here is another very nice and simple recipe from Maria and Rosie of Sweet and Simple Bakes. The recipes they choose are always a hit at our house. My muffins didn't rise much but nobody complained !! I made the lemon curd in the microwave so I must say it took me less than an hour to bake and (almost) enjoy these muffins !!
Please visit the site and join us next month !!

Lemon Curd Muffins

200g/7oz self-raising flour
100g/3 ½ oz golden caster sugar

Heat the oven to 190oC/375oF/gas 5. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases.

Sieve the flour into a bowl and stir in the sugar. In a large jug mix together the egg, sunflower oil, milk and vanilla extract using a fork. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir gently together until just combined. Put a teaspoon of mixture in the base of each paper case. Top with 1 tsp lemon curd. Top with the rest of the muffin mixture.
