Pistachio Muffins


           Lovely muffins with pistachio nuts…My kids love pistachios,so tried this for them. Recipe is adapted from Scarletta Bakes, and I halved the original recipe and it makes 12 muffins…


1 1/2 cup plain flour
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup pistachio


  1. Chop half of the pistachio into rough pieces and pulse or grind remaining half into dry, coarse powder/paste  and keep it aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 degree celcius. Line a muffin tin with paper liners or spray with cooking spray.
  3. Sift the plain flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl and keep it aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream the sugar and oil. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until incorporated..
  5. Add dry ingredients (step 3 ), alternating with buttermilk and mix until just incorporated.
  6. Beat in the pistachio powder and fold in the chopped pistachio nuts.
  7. Divide the batter into the prepared muffin tin and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool slightly and serve…
