Mum's Magic Muffins

These muffins are very yummy.
Based on a recipe by Australian Dairy Corporation ruthlessly experimented with by Lana's Mum.

Makes 12 muffin size muffins. (We always double the mixture)

Mum's Magic Muffins - Banana and Sultanas

Core structure
1.5 cups self raising flour (no need to sift)
1 egg (no need to separate)
1 cup of yoghurt (any flavour)

Any two of the following:
grated apple (or can of pie apple)
mashed banana
grated pear
cup of boiled dates (no need to chop)
cup of sultanas or raisins

Spices, etc (optional)
Probably not garlic

Method (in her madness)
Combine flour and optional spices, make hole in centre, add egg and yoghurt - in fact you can just add everything in one heap and then stir (don’t shake). (No beating - be gentle)
Bake at 180C to 200C (350F to 400F) for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
The end result should be of a bouncy consistency and taste really nice either warm or cold. Can be frozen, too.

Note: No butter, sugar or salt is in this muffin, yet it still tastes yummy without any modern guilt trips.

Proven combinations:
Apple and sultana and cinnamon
Apple and pear
Banana and dates
Dates and ginger
Apple, pear and sultanas
In fact, any mixture will probably be fine.
