Lemony Golden Syrup Muffins

Golden syrup is a kind of comfort food, isn't it? So, here are the muffins which make you feel "ahhhh". I was looking for a muffin recipe and found one in Nigella.com. Her recipe suggests adding extra golden syrup to the middle of each muffin, but I decided to pour "lemony golden syrup" into each muffin instead. It makes the muffins lovely and moist with a hint of lemon flavour. :)  


  • 200g flour
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons (90g) golden syrup
  • 1 dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 50ml vegetable oil
  • 130 ml milk
  • golden lemon syrup (golden syrup + lemon juice) 


1.     Pre heat the oven, 200  (190 fan oven)
2.    Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
3.    Mix all the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
4.    Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and lightly mix.
5.    Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and bake them for 20 minutes.
6.    When the muffins are baked, poke a few holes into each muffin with a very fine skewer and pour the golden lemon syrup into each muffin.

Serve while still hot, with a cup of tea or coffee. 
They would also be great turned into a pudding with a big dollop of custard.
