  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 170°C (fan 150°C, gas mark 3). Line a muffin tray with 10-12 paper cases.

  2. 2

    Whisk together the oil, eggs and vanilla extract

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150ml Vegetable oil
    • 2 Egg(s) (free range)
    • 1tsp Vanilla extract

    • 75g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 150g Self-raising white flour
