Fruity vegetable muffins


  • 125 g self–raising flour
  • 125 g self–raising wholemeal flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup (170 g) caster sugar
  • ½ cup (60 g) dried mixed fruit or raisins
  • ¾ cup (115 g) finely grated carrot
  • 1 cup (135 g) finely grated zucchini
  • ½ cup (125 ml) sunflower oil
  • 3 eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Grease a 12–cup deep muffin tin or line the cups with paper muffin cases; the cups should be about 3–3.
  3. 5 cm deep.
  4. Sift both types of flour, the cinnamon and sugar into a mixing bowl, adding any bran left in the sieve.
  5. Stir in the dried mixed fruit or raisins, and make a well in the middle.
  6. In another bowl, beat the carrot, zucchini, oil and eggs together.
  7. Pour this mixture into the well in the dry ingredients and stir until almost blended, but with a small amount of dry flour still visible in places.
  8. Divide the mixture among the cups, filling them about two–thirds full.
  9. Bake for 20–25 minutes or until the muffins are well risen, peaked in the centre and springy to the touch.
  10. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool.
  11. Serve the muffins warm or at room temperature.
  12. They are best eaten on the day they are made, but they can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
  13. Alternatively, freeze them for up to 3 months.
