Marvelous muffins

Here is the recipe of muffins I baked over the weekend in case you want to try them. Nicky asked for the recipe so I thought I'd put it in here - hope you like them Nicky!

All you need is
70 grams granular sugar
1 egg, beaten
150 ml milk
75 ml sunflower oil
250 gr self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
150+ gr "flavouring"
little bit of salt

1. Mix egg, milk, oil and sugar together
2. Add flour and baking powder and mix quickly (don't mix too much because if you do, the muffins will turn out tough)
3. Stir in the "flavouring", the mixture can be a bit lumpy as long as their are no airpockets or flour that hasn't been mixed
4. Put in muffin cases &/ muffin tin and bake at gas 5 for 25 minutes
5. Eat and enjoy

For the flavourings I tried:
- plain and milk chocolate chips with and without 2 tbl spoons of cocoa and with and without halved hazelnuts
- blueberries (frozen ones from sainsbury's) and little bit of vanilla extract
- sultanas & halved hazelnuts with tsp or so of mixed spice and another tsp of cinnamon
You can probably try pretty much anything. I did think of trying carrot cake muffins. My guess was grating some carrots adding some nuts and sultanas and maybe using some brown sugar & cinnamon but I didn't have carrots and I had enough muffins for church so I didn't try that.
