Is anyone familiar with Nestum? This is what we usually have for breakfast, especially for those that doesn’t enjoy oats. I love baking especially spontaneous one. I have some leftover buttermilk and was up to baking AGAIN. I was searching for recipe last night on the Internet. After some consideration, I attempted this very simple ‘stupidly-easy Nestum muffins’.
Sometimes we wish to spoil ourselves with sweet treats but at the same time, we wanted to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Therefore this recipe from ‘Happy Flour’ yields 7 muffins which is a great amount for a family of 7 like me.
– 60g Butter
– 70g sugar
– 1 egg
– 130g or 130ml Buttermilk
– 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
– 120g self-raising flour
– 25g chopped almond (I love adding extra nuts)
– 40g Nestum (another 10g to sprinkle on top)
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- Line muffin tins with paper cups and set aside.
- Melt the butter over low heat and remove from stove (My method: pop it into the microwave for 45 seconds)
- Stir in the sugar until dissolved and cool slightly.
- Stir in buttermilk, egg and vanilla essence into the butter/sugar batter.
- Mix flour, almond and Nestum together in bowl.
- Pour the flour mixture slowly into the batter and mix until just combined.
- Spoon the batter into the lined muffins tin and sprinkle some Nestum on top.
- Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.
- Remove the muffins from oven and cool on a wire rack.
I am glad that my slight modification on the recipe has led to a great success. The original recipe uses milk instead of buttermilk and also requires to add a pinch of salt. I have added more Nestum and almonds too. I hope everyone could try out this recipe and I can guarantee that it will be very delicious as what you will expect.
