  • Preheat your oven to 140⁰C / Fan 120⁰C / Gas Mark 2 then place 12 muffin cases into a muffin tin.
  • Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then mix in the eggs, one at a time. Add the grated zest and mix thoroughly.
  • Sift the flour and mixed spice and fold into the mix. Add the fruit mix and pecans then fold thoroughly.
  • Divide the mix between the muffin cases then bake on the bottom shelf for 45 minutes.
  • To test if they are cooked simply insert a skewer into the centre of a muffin, if it comes out clean then they’re cooked.
  • Leave the muffins to cool in the tin for 15 minutes then remove them from the tin then place on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before decorating.
