Here I am with a last minute idea for a muffin you could make for Christmas morning or even on Boxing Day, using up some of the oodles of mincemeat you no doubt got in for the holidays!
These are quick to make, and really nicely flavoured. You could mix all of the dry ingredients the night before, and then just throw together the wet in the morning and then stir them together and bake.
These are lightly flavoured with oranges, lemons, nutmeg and ginger . . . and the piece de resistance, Grand Marnier . . . and stogged full of mincemeat, well . . . okay, there is a teaspoon in the centre, which is just enough. With some brandy sauce, they could even double as a delicious dessert. Happy Christmas!
