250g (10oz) plain flour (you can use gluten-free if you prefer)
150g (6oz) caster sugar
75ml sunflower or rapeseed oil
200ml tea (exactly as you would make it to drink)
1 drop lemon extract (you could use the zest of a lemon if you prefer – I just find extract easier)
75g (3oz) sultanas (or dark chocolate chips for those who won't eat dried fruit!)
2 tsp mixed spice
2 tsp baking powder
Makes 12 muffins (or one large loaf cake)
Preheat the oven to 180C. Tip all the ingredients into a large bowl or jug and mix either by hand or using a machine until just combined.
Spoon or pour the mixture into 12 muffin cases.
Bake for 20 minutes or until well risen and golden. Allow to cool slightly and then serve.
