Taste Buddies

We think our Oat, Date & Honey Muffins were delicious but not the best. We rated our muffins 7/10 but we liked the Apple and Cinnamon more. We all enjoyed making the muffins and all had a fair part in the process. We made a few mistakes but it turned out great!

Basic Vanilla Muffins

Vanilla muffins are really easy to make. Our muffins were soft but crunchy on the outside. The vanilla flavour was not strong but also not weak. We loved our muffins we think the whole group loved making them

Here’s how to make them…..


  • 2 cups of self-raising flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • ½ tsp. of  salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup of milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 180c or 160c fan forced. Place muffin paper in one 12 hole muffin tray.
  2. Combine flour, sugar and salt in a bowl.
  3. In a jug, mix egg, milk and oil.
  4. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  5. Pour 1/3 cup measures into muffin liners and smooth over top.
  6. Bake for 22-25 minutes. Leave to cool in tin for 5 minutes, and then eat

Out of all the groups’ muffins we thought the Triple Chocolate muffins where the best because the texture was amazing and the chocolate was melted in the middle of the muffins which we loved.

Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Today our group baked Apple and Cinnamon muffins. Overall, Charlie thought it was rather bland. He thought it could have had more apple in them and a little more cinnamon. Ted thought it was really good and the apple and cinnamon really worked well and it was cooked well and tasted great.

Charlie’s favourite muffins were the vanilla ones because it was sweeter than the rest and had the most flavour. Ted liked the Triple Choc muffins because he really liked the chocolaty density of it all.

White Chocolate and Raspberry Muffins

Today Nicholas, Sam and Paddy made White Chocolate & Raspberry muffins.

Today was unusual with one of our group members sick.

Without Henry we were still working like a team and carried on with making our Raspberry and White Chocolate muffins.

At the end of making our muffins we all got to try some of each other’s.

We all enjoyed making our muffins and had a great time tasting and making them.

Favourite out of the group: Triple Chocolate muffins

We all rate it 8/10 because it was crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside.

The Kitchen Kids

“Hi we are the Kitchen Kids and we have been making Gluten Free Raspberry and Coconut muffins.”

They turned out alright they had a fair amount of raspberry and a bit of coconut.

Overall they tasted okay and we just loved the raspberry and the coconut together, but it was a bit sweet. In the long run we would rate it a 6/10.

Our favourite muffins were the Chocolate muffins and the Gluten Free Raspberry and Coconut muffins.
