I’m actually not sure what to call these? They are mini muffins but a different texture to a traditional muffin. They are denser, creamier and almost melt in your mouth bite size goodie. These are so delicate and delicious.

I’m always asked what to do with excess cream so here is a recipe for you. They will sink upon cooling and that’s ok. I wouldn’t make these any bigger than a mini patty case size due to the sinking. They are best served as a small bite size morsel.

A word of warning: Don’t eat the batter – it is addictive! As are these bites warm.

You can vary the flavours used for these. The base recipe is below which you can make 90 of or split the mixture up and make a variety of flavours like I have in the photo. Some ideas:

  • Grated apple and cinnamon
  • Choc chips
  • Cocoa and choc chips
  • Mashed banana
  • Cocoa and coconut
  • Lemon or orange zest and chia or poppy seeds
  • Sprinkles
  • Sultanas or dried fruit
  • M&Ms or similar
  • Milo
  • Berries

Simply mix in a large bowl with wooden spoon.
