This is my Thermomix conversion of my muffin recipe. This recipe has, for over a decade, been my serious go-to because almost everything can be substituted to cater for dietary needs or to clean out the fridge. Whether made i in the Thermomix or by the regular recipe, they turn out scrumptious every time! It’s awesome to have those recipes that are fail-safe for any circumstance. So, add this one to your collection right away.
