You will need:
120g plain flour
2 large free-range eggs
10–15 large fresh sage leaves, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
Equipment: 12-hole muffin tray
1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (fan), 240°C, gas mark 9. Using an electric whisk, beat the flour and eggs together in a large bowl, then gradually add the milk to form a batter. Add the sage.
