Double Chocolate Muffins

This is a favourite for Sunday breakfast they are easy and quick and only take the minimum of washing up. It's another chuck it all in and mix it up type recipe, that now Elsa is getting older she can sometimes makes them herself. If I'm feeling thrifty half a packet of chocolate drops makes little difference to the taste. For large greedy families like ours, just double the mixture and make 24.

Makes 12 muffins 225g (8oz) Self-raising flour 1tsp Baking powder 25g (1oz) cocoa powder 100g (4oz) light brown sugar

100g (4 oz) packet chocolate drops 1 Organic Duck egg 175ml (6fl oz) milk 75ml (2.5 fl oz) cooking oil (I use vegetable oil)

1. Line muffin tin with cases
2. Measure all ingredients in bowl and beat well. (I use my mixer which is ideal) Spoon into muffin cases (don't worry if mixture is a bit lumpy).
3. Cook in preheated oven 180 degree C for 20 - 25mins until risen and cooked through.

George's One Eye Sandwich

George our nephew is now a very talented trumpet player and music student. When he was little this was his favourite breakfast or lunch when he came to stay. It's still a favourite but can be a little messy, Alfred always seems to dribble the yolk down his school uniform! Just increase the quantities to suit.

Serves 1

Slice of bread (at least a day old is best) Vegetable oil or similar for frying

1 Organic Duck egg

  1. Using a pastry cutter or similar cut a circle about 6cm across in the centre of the bread
  2. Heat oil in frying pan, when sizzling put in bread to fry. Don't forget to fry the extra circle!
  3. Crack the duck egg into a cup and pour into the hole in the bread.
  4. After 3 mins or when the bottom side of the bread is brown and egg firm, carefully turn the one eyed sandwich over.
  5. Cook until all the egg white is firm and yolk is how you like it.
  6. Eat with lots of tomato ketchup and don't forget to serve with the extra circle of fried bread!
