Healthy muffins!

I wanted to bake something for G. to eat for breakfast (in the car, while going to work!).
The obvious solution was muffins, so I made wholegrain muffins with honey and raisins and a little coffee glaze on top!

 Ready for the oven!

 Ready for glazing!

I also made a couple of loaves and put confectioner's sugar on top!

Wholegrain muffins

500gr whole grain self rising flour
250gr butter
300gr sugar
150gr honey
4 eggs
300ml milk
zest of 1 orange
vanilla essence

Beat the butter and the sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Then add the zest and the vanilla. You add the flour and the milk in alternating order (flour - milk - flour - milk - flour).
You bake in a preheated oven 180oC for about 1 hour (if you are making one large cake) or 30min for the muffins.
The batter is a lot. It is enough for a large bundt pan.

I glazed them with a simple glaze, which I made with confectioner's sugar, instant coffee and milk. Whisk everything together, adjusting the quantities, until you have a consistency like a very thick syrup.
