Oat muffins with cornflakes and dried fruits

This recipe comes from 'Kids's cookbook'. Muffins are sweet with crunchy top. They are a little bit crumbly as they have a lot of ingredients inside. I think those who really love dried fruits will enjoy them very much.

Ingredients for 15 muffins:
  • 100g porridge oats
  • 300 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 125 ml sunflower oil
  • 175g brown sugar
  • 50g cornflakes
  • 150g raisins*
  • 95g chopped dried apricots*
  • 150g plain flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
* these fruits may be swapped with different dried fruits : cranberry, dates or partly with chocolate chips

Mix the oats and milk and leave them for 15 minutes to soak. Chop the apricots, there are chopped one available in shops.
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases. 
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into bowl and whisk them together.
Beat the egg into oat mixture and whisk. Pour oil into the same mixture and whisk.
Fold in fruits into the flour. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients mixture and combine them. At last fold in the cornflakes. Spoon the batter in to paper cases. Bake for 20-25 min. Check with toothpick if batter is baked in the middle. Leave for a while in baking tin to cool dawn, remove and place on wire rack to cool down completely.
