Nude Muffins

Crumb EnvyCrumb envy? Seek the perfect muffin technique, rather than the perfect muffin recipe.

Remove 2 eggs from the refrigerator
Measure 350ml milk into a microwave safe container, add 150g butter cut into cubes, then warm in a microwave oven at medium power for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the butter starts to melt. Stir to melt any remaining lumps and allow to cool.
Whisk 200g caster sugar, 500g plain flour, and 5 teaspoons baking powder in a large bowl for 30 seconds or until well combined. Shape a deep well in the centre of the bowl.
Whisk eggs into milk and butter, then pour into well. Mix with a spatula until barely combined. Cover and stand for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200ºC; line a muffin tray with paper cases.
Scoop a dessertspoon of batter into each muffin case. Top with a little inclusion, then top with another scoop of batter.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
