Who can think of any- thing more charming than excited children scrambling out of bed on Christmas morning, to see what Santa has left them, even if mum and dad had spent the even- ing before rapidly wrap- ping gifts until all hours. I had dozens of elegant recipes sent in for Christmas breakfast but picked an easy, economi- cal recipe which can be made the day before. It will keep those early hungry family members satisfied until you decide to get out of bed and start your day. Christmas morning muffins -- Tina Copthorn from Browns Bay 2 cups flour 1 cup wheat germ 2 teaspoons baking pow- der 1 teaspoons baking soda Pinch ground cloves Pinch ground star anise 75g butter 1 cup buttermilk 1 cup sugar 1 cup Christmas mince- meat 1 cup dried cranberries (or craisins) 2 beaten eggs 1 teaspoon grated orange zest Chopped glace cherries to garnish Icing sugar for dusting Preheat oven to 180 Celsius. Butter a 12-cup muffin tray. Sift together flour, wheat germ, baking pow- der, soda, and spices into a large bowl. Melt the butter and add the buttermilk and gently heat until just warm. Stir in the sugar until dissolves and mix in the mincemeat and cranberries. Whisk in the eggs and zest. Fold the wet mix into the dry ingredients and combine softly. Fill the tins and bake 20-25 minutes. Ice and garnish with the dried fruit. Dust with icing sugar. Makes 12 Icing Sift 100g icing sugar into a small bowl and place over a saucepan of simmering water. Gradually beat in 4 teaspoons hot water mixed with 1 teaspoon orange juice until the icing coats the back of a spoon. Pour over muffins.
