christmas in a muffin
Ví esta receita no site da Nigella e ela prometia que estes muffins tinham todo o sabor do Natal: as clementinas, a noz moscada, os frutos secos e a canela. Experimentei e não me arrependi, sabem mesmo a Natal!


I saw this recipe on Nigella’s website and she promised that these muffins had the true taste of christmas: clementines, nutmeg, cranberries and cinnamon. I baked them and they absolutely taste like christmas!


250 gr de farinha com fermento
100 gr de açúcar
1 colher de chá de canela em pó
1/4 de colher de chá de noz moscada em pó
2 clementinas médias
125 ml de leite
75 ml de óleo
1 ovo
145 gr de mirtilhos secos
2 colheres de sopa de açúcar demerara

Aquecer o forno a 200C.
Juntar num recipente a farinha, o açúcar, a canela, a noz moscada e a raspa das duas clementinas.
Espremer sumo das clementinas num copo medidor e adicionar o leite até que chegue aos 200 ml, adicionar o ovo e o óleo e bater ligeiramente.
Juntar os ingredientes líquidos aos secos mexendo o mínimo possível, apenas o suficiente para combinar tudo. Por fim juntar os mirtilhos secos.
Colocar a massa em formas de muffins e polvilhar com o açúcar demerara. Levar ao forno cerca de 20 minutos.

9 oz self rasing flour
3,5 oz sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 medium clementines
4 fl oz milk
2,5 fl oz ml oil
1 egg
5 oz of dried blueberries
2 tablespoons demerara sugar

Preheat oven to 400F.
In a recipent combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and zest of the two clementines.
Squeeze the juice of the clementines in a measuring cup and add the milk until it reaches the 7 fl oz mark, add the egg and the oil and beat lightly.
Add liquid ingredients to the dry mixture and beat just enough to combine everything. Finally add the dried blueberries.
Spoon the batter into muffin cases and sprinkle with the demerara sugar. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes.
