For the sauce
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix the muffins with the sultanas. Divide between 4 buttered ramekins or one baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 8 mins until just warmed through.

Get aheadTo prepare ahead, don't bake the muffin mixture, just pour over the sauce and leave to cool. Chill until ready to serve, then bake at 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 15-20 minutes until bubbling and piping hot.
