☯ oh Yoko

on the last day of the Summer holidays
we went to the Serpentine Gallery to see
an exhibition of Yoko Ono works
followed by tea and cake by the lake
we haven't eaten or made muffins for ages
my school friend Donna said so too
and sent me this > link  to a recipe of hers

I'm sure her recipe is healthier but we decided
to use butter and our own recipe
but with a nod to hers
thanks D!

coco cherry muffins

you will need ....

250g self raising flour
140g caster sugar
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
85g butter {melted}
200ml milk
2 eggs
a few tablespoons of dessicated coconut
{and some for sprinkling}
12 tsp of your favourite jam 
we used this sour cherry jam which we bought 
on our travels in Turkey

heat the oven to 200c/ gas 6
prepare a 12 hole muffin tin with greaseproof
or paper cases

weigh out all the dry ingredients into a large bowl
mix all the wet ingredients {except the jam} 
into a jug or bowl
then pour onto the dry
and stir until combined 
but don't over mix it!

put a tablespoon of this mixture into each muffin case
then a teaspoon of your favourite jam 
then cover with the remaining mixture
and sprinkle with more coconut
bake for 15 ~ 18 minutes until golden and firm
eat and sing this song 
{a jam for a woman too}
