Todays recipe is a twist on this recipe by Faith which is a gluten free twist on this recipe by Mike.

Gluten Free Festive Muffins Ingredients


190g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour (I used rice flour but recommend self raising)
75g Unsalted butter
100g Demerara Sugar
1 egg.
Zest of 1 orange
Juice of 1/2 an orange
120ml Almond Milk
1 tsp Xanthum Gum
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Allspice

For the topping:

50g Demerara sugar
45g Unsalted butter
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

You can easily take out the gluten free or dairy free elements if you don’t need them and you’ll still get great muffins.
