Burlington's Extra Special Muffins for Mummy

As you know we have been working on the most wonderful collaboration with Children's book series, Burlington Bear, and we can't wait to share more with you over the coming weeks. In the meantime, Burlington Bear has kindly put together his favourite Muffin recipe just in time for some Mother's Day baking! Over to you Burlington...

These are my favourite muffins and I thought you might like to try and make them for your Mummy to say thank you on Mother’s Day. 
First of all you must wash your paws with lots of soap and water, cook is very particular about my paws being clean here at Number One Piccadilly. 
___
Remember to put on a large apron so you don’t splash your clothes with mixture. I always get cook to help me with the oven as it's hotter than a volcano so make sure you ask an adult to supervise!
Try not to get in such a pickle as the three little kittens Rosie, Lula & Louis!
