Preheat the oven to 190c/375f/gas 5. Line a muffin tray with paper or silicon muffin cases. If you are using a cupcake tray & cases, this mix will make more than 12 and they'll need less cooking time.
Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl.
Mix all the wet ingredients in a large jug, then when the oven is at temperature, pour the wet into the dry and mix gently but quickly just until there are no traces of flour left. Spoon the mixture into the awaiting cases and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and spring back when pressed.
Carefully remove the muffins from the tray and pop on a cooling rack until room temperature before squirrelling them away inside a cake tin.
