In many recipes, the batter is baked right away and decanted directly into the cases. However, this recipe asks that the batter be left to rest. You can rest for one hour. In doing so you let the baking powder and bicarbonate of soda get to work before they’re introduced to heat.

You’ll notice after an hour that the mixture is bubbly and light so work with it gently as you move it into your muffin cases so you don’t deflate any of the air that’s been created.
