I was stewing some strawberries as they were starting to go funny and Violet likes stewed fruit with yogurt. I threw in some frozen raspberries too and thought I’d try making muffins with it! Worked quite well!
225g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
100g caster sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
60ml vegetable oil
125ml stewed strawberries and raspberries
(To stew the berries, quarter the strawberries, rinse, put in a pan over a medium heat with a handful of raspberries. After about 5 minutes the berries will start to release their juice, simmer for 5-10 more until they start to go mushy, leave to cool)
Preheat oven to 180°C/gas 4. Line a muffin tin with paper cases. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl and gently mix with a spatula, scraping from the sides as you go, until just combined. Divide between cases, sprinkle with granulated sugar, and bake for 20-30 minutes until well risen and golden brown on top. Cool on a wire rack.
I bet these would be even better with a dollop of (clotted?) cream! Naughty!
