Red currant muffins are the delicous perfectly domed and delectable egg less muffins. To try to make them as healthy as possible, I have prepared them without butter. I have also kept it eggless to prepare recipe for those who like eggless recipes. These muffins not only look gorgeous but also they taste scrumptious.

  • *measurement for cup used 1 cup = 250 ml
  • 1 cup - All purpose flour/ maida
  • ½ cup - Fresh red currants
  • 1 teaspoon - Corn flour
  • 1 cup - Hot milk
  • ¼ cup - Olive oil
  • ½ cup - White Sugar I have used brown sugar
  • ½ tsp - Baking powder
  • ¼ tsp - Baking soda
  • ½ tsp - Vanilla essence
  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degree Celsius. Wash the red currants, pat dry it using kitchen towel or tissue. Take two spoons of flour in a bowl and add red currants to coat them properly.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add olive oil and sugar. Stir well.
  3. Now add hot milk, vanilla essence and stir it to combine. Liquid mixture is ready.
  4. Sieve all dry ingredients all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and corn flour.
  5. Add liquid mixture to dry mixture and mix well using a cut and fold motion, rather than a mixing motion, to combine, because we want batter to be as light as possible. Combine it well and be sure that there are no air pockets left. The consistency should be pouring.
  6. Add the flour coated red currants to the batter and do not over mix it. Just fold them gently.
  7. Also line paper cups on a muffin tray.
  8. Fill the 3/4rth of paper cups with batter and they are ready to bake. First bake the muffins at 220 degree celsius for 6 to 8 minutes. Muffin's top should have risen to form a dome. Now turn down the temperature to 180 degree and bake for 15-16 min. (mine took exact 15 min to cook). You can check it by inserting tooth pic, it should be come out clean. Do not open the oven door until the muffins are nearly done.
  9. Take out the muffins from pan and let them cool down over wire rack.
Recipe Notes

- Do not leave them in the pan to cool because bottoms and sides will become soggy due to the steam.
