I wrote this recipe many years ago as it was quick and anything could be added to vary the flavour, I have now changed it to a Wheat Gluten and Egg Free recipe, as I can no longer eat wheat. The mix freezes well. Either make Muffins or a larger cake in a 1 lb loaf tin. Add chopped apples, sultanas, choolate chips, dried apricots, other soft fruits, chopped nuts, the list is endless!
