  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Put the flour, baking powder, sugar and poppy seeds in a large bowl with a pinch of salt and mix together. Whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour into the bowl. Mix together quickly (don’t over mix, you want it a bit lumpy). Divide between the paper cases and bake for 25-30 minutes until risen and golden.
