About this recipe: This was a favourite recipe of mine growing up. Now, I continue to make them for my husband and I. These muffins are easy to make, and quite tasty.

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup (75g) shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) milk
