MUFFIN RECIPE

Muffins served warm with butter.
Ingredients
300g/10½ oz strong white bread flour, plus extra for flouring
2tsp yeast
2tsp salt
15g caster sugar
15g softened butter, cut into small pieces
1 egg, lightly beaten
170ml milk (should make a soft dough)
oil, for greasing
15g semolina, plus extra for dusting
Method
Tip the flour into a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle the yeast on one side of the flour and the salt into the other side of the flour. Add the sugar, butter, egg and milk, then mix all the ingredients together to form a soft dough.
Turn the mixture out of the bowl onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes, or until soft, smooth and stretchy.
Lightly grease a large bowl with oil. Place the dough in the oiled bowl, cover and leave to prove for about one hour, or until doubled in size.
Dust the work surface with a mixture of the semolina and flour. Tip the dough out onto the work surface and roll out to about 2.5cm thick.
Lightly dust two baking trays with half of the semolina.
Using a 9cm straight-sided cutter, cut out 6 muffins. Place 3 muffins, evenly spaced apart on each of the dusted baking trays. Dust the remaining semolina or polenta over the top of the muffins.
Leave to prove for another 30 minutes.
Preheat the a heavy-based frying pan on the hob to a very low heat. Griddle the muffins for approximately 5 minutes, then flip over and griddle for another 5 minutes on the other side.
