    Homemade food gifts like this muffin mix in a jar are fun, cheap and really show the recipient you care. We’ve made a chocolate muffins mix here as they’re the most classic and easiest muffin idea, loved by many. Just add a pretty ribbon and write the recipe on a tag for the Christmas muffin mix, so the recipient knows how to turn the dry mix into deliciously tasty chocolate muffins. You could also make a mix for blueberry muffins by adding dried fruit and banana muffins by similarly adding dried bananas to the recipe.


    • 400g self-raising flour
    • 275g soft brown sugar
