We were stuck inside the house most of the weekend as the kids recovered from winter headcolds. So we made up some Lemon Yoghurt muffins to cure hungry tummies and a dose of boredom. I can’t give you the exact recipe, because I sort of make these things up. Most times they work. But sometimes they don’t and I end up with egg on my face. These muffins, thankfully, turned out a treat and disappeared in minutes.

Most of the time I use this banana muffin recipe as a baseline and throw things in until they look to be the right consistency. I know, some of you are probably cringing. But I prefer guidelines to hard set rules, any day!

Kids were peckish so we whipped up some lemon yoghurt and orange rind muffins for #supper #yum

Do you prefer guidelines for creative feasting? Or do think that a recipe is a tried and tested preference for perfection?
