Blackberry muffins

Oh my goodness, I think I’ve invented the best recipe yet, even if I do say so myself.

There seems to be a glut of blackberries at the moment (not that I’m complaining), and rather than make an apple and blackberry crumble again (crikey, these trousers are getting tight, strange that), I thought I’d have a go at these.

It’s kind of taken from a blueberry muffin recipe, and as I was worried the blackberries might be a lilttle tart by themselves, I added some of those mini white choc chips (as they are so, so sweet (yum)) and I had an orange so I added that too.


Dry ingredients:

  • 400g plain flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 1 tbspn baking powder

Wet ingredients:

  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange
  • 284ml buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 85g melted butter

Tasty bits:

  • 225g blackberries
  • 50g mini white chocolate chips

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 180C and line a muffin tray with pretty cases.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients in a big bowl.
  3. Mix together the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and gently and not too thouroughly mix in the wet things.
  5. Carefully stirthrough the ‘tasty bits’.
  6. Spoon generously into the muffin cases and cook in oven for 15-20 mins.
  7. Allow to cool for 5 mins then onto a rack to cool down properly.
  8. Eat them all up as quickly as you can!
