Christmas is only a few rings of the bell away and our tummies are already grumbling for the festive feast season ahead! What better time to ditch the no-sugar rule and indulge in some tasty treats? I personally eat sugar all year round (round being the operative word), but I can’t always muster up a good enough excuse to ‘go big or go home’. At least during the festive season, I can go big in the comfort of my own home while singing Christmas carols and enjoying the beautiful decorations strewn around the house.

So, it has been wholly established that Christmas is a guilt-free season and a time to bake your heart out. I thought I would get you started with a delicious recipe that gives you all the taste, less the effort. The Icon Chef Batter-Blitz, designed in Switzerland by Betty Bossi, is an all-in-one measuring, mixing, and dispensing device for dough and batter. It’s incredibly easy to use and we all know that as fun as Christmas cooking is, it can certainly tire a person out!  I’ve chosen a simple yet delicious vanilla muffin recipe for your taste buds.


Preparation time: Approx. 35 min.

Baking: Approx. 20 min.

For a muffin tin with 12 cups approx. 7 cm diameter each, with paper baking moulds or greased


200 g sunflower oil

4 eggs

200 g sugar

1 pinch of salt

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 tsp. lemon juice

160 g flour

80 g unsalted peeled pistachios, finely chopped

½ tsp. baking powder

Icing sugar for dusting


  1. Add oil and all the ingredients up to and including baking powder to the the <<Dough Blitzer>> mark. Place the lid with the mixer arm on the cup and move it up and down for approx. 1 minute until a smooth batter forms. Fill the batter into the prepared muffin tin.
  2. Bake for approx. 20 min. in the lower half of the oven preheated to 180˚. Remove, cool slightly, remove muffins from the tin and allow cooling on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I am already salivating for all of the Christmas goodness ahead. If you would like to easily and quickly make omelettes, pancakes, crepes, muffins, and more, then get yourself an Icon Chef Batter-Blitz today.
