Ingredients (makes 12 muffins):

  • 320g plain flour
  • 2 tbsps poppy seeds
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tsps baking powder
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 125g unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 45ml lemon juice
  • 210ml yoghurt
  • Zest of 1 lemon, finely grated
  • 100g apple, grated
  • 100g pear, seeded and diced

For the glaze:

  • 125g icing sugar
  • 1½ tbsps lemon juice
  • 3 tbsps hot water

With muffins as tasty as these, plates seem somewhat irrelevant.

Method

Step 1: Preheat oven to 190ºC (Gas Mark 5). Combine all dry ingredients. Beat together wet ingredients, combine the two and fold in fruit.

Step 2: Spoon into a greased muffin tin. Bake for 25 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Step 3: Mix all glaze ingredients together. Add more water if you like a thinner glaze. For a thick white glaze, add just enough water for the glaze to have a rich consistency to dip the muffins into.

Step 4: Plunge the head of each muffin into the mixture and allow excess to drip back into the bowl. Place muffins on a rack to let glaze set.
