  6. Spoon the batter into the cases or greased muffin tray until they are one-third full and then add a teaspoon-sized dollop of caramel sauce to each one. (note 2)
  7. Continue to fill the cases until they are two-thirds full and add another teaspoon-sized dollop of caramel sauce to each muffin.

  1. In the US self raising flour contains 1/2 tsp less baking powder per cup than UK self-raising flour. If you are based in the US use plain or all-purpose flour instead and add 2tsp baking powder.
  2. If the caramel sauce is a little stiff after being stored in the fridge place it in the microwave for 20 seconds to loosen it up and make it easier to spoon into the muffin cases.
