And all things nice – that’s what these little cakes are made of. With a recipe for the perfectly portable picnic pudding, Mark Price proves that you can have your muffin and eat it. Muffins mean one thing in our house, and that’s baking. And what that means is that there will be some frantic fun in the kitchen, ingredients spilling onto the floor and then a lot of laughter. And then there’s the smell of hot muffins as they come out of the oven, which creates a degree of excitement ahead of a Price family picnic... Now while I’m not a huge ginger fan, I do like it in these muffins – it lends them a gentle kick without overpowering them. The plums mean we can bring in some seasonal fruitiness that works well with the spice. Muffins are perfect to transport for a picnic. But they’re also great for the journey home. We’ve often stopped at the Leckford Estate in Hampshire to look at the cows, then dipped back into the picnic basket for tea from the thermos and a muffin before heading home. Moo!
