I'm old enough to know better but young enough to do it anyway.

I don't know about the flap jacks but I make christmas pudding muffins, they are very yummy and very easy.

DRY STUFF
9oz Plain Flour
3oz sugar
4 tea spoons baking powder
1/2 tea spoon salt
a few tea spoons mixed spice (not an exact science this, I can never remember how many and it always turns out great)

WET STUFF
8fl oz milk
3fl oz fat (corn oil, veggie oil, metled butter or marge) - I use corn oil
1 egg
1/2 jar of mincemeat, usually whatever is on offer at the time!
1/2 pot of glace cherries - chopped into little bits.

Very important keep wet and dry stuff apart until the very last minute.

Method
Put oven onto heat at 200 ish - fairly hot
Mix all the dry stuff together
Mix all wet stuff together (but keep away from the dry)
Put paper cases in muffin tin - this mixture makes 12 big muffins.
When the oven is hot and you are ready to cook the muffins, add the wet stuff to the dry stuff, mix for 30 seconds, until everything is just about combined then put into the paper cases and into the oven.

After 20 - 25 mins check they are cooked.

It is important to keep wet and dry ingredience apart until the last moment as the baking powder starts to raise and you want this to happen in the oven not in the bowl.

When cool sprinkle with icing sugar to make them look extra festive.

Ooh yummy - I need to go to the shops for a couple of the ingredients but these are all on my planner.  White chocholate and raspberries are my favourite so I will try this twist with the cranberries - now to find dry cranberries.... ???

Tinkie-Bear - can you freeze the muffins or are they better fresh?

I've never tried to freeze them - they get gobbled up too quickly in my house !!
