Honey Weetabix Muffins

Here is a (very) slightly modified recipe of Weetabix Honey muffins with Cooking in Germany notes!

1 1/2 cups unbleached flour (I use type 405) (170 g)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon allspice (called piment in Germany)
5 Weetabix , biscuits,crushed
1/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed (found in Asian grocery stores in Germany) (65 g)
1 cup plain yogurt (I use 1.5% fat but any kind works)
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup butter , melted (or 57g)
4 tablespoons honey
brown sugar , for topping

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F degrees or 180-200C. I have a convection oven and I use the pastry fan setting.
  2. Grease muffin cups or use paper baking cups.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and allspice. Stir in the Weetabix and sugar.
  4. Mix the yogurt and milk together in separate bowl and beat in the egg, melted butter, and honey.
  5. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. (do not overmix!)
  6. Scoop batter into the muffin cups and sprinkle a little more brown sugar on top of the batter.
  7. Bake 20-25 minutes in conventional oven. Convection ovens only take about 5-10 min. (My oven took 7 min) Wait until the muffins have risen and are lightly golden brown.
