  • Muffin Tray Liners
  • 2 Large Bowls

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup cornflour

  • Bake your muffins in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the centre of your muffin comes out dry and clean.

To store, wrap your muffins well or store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. They will last in your refrigerator for up to a week.
