Apple and Blackberry Muffins

27 Aug

It’s that wonderful time of year when, everywhere you look (if you look hard enough) the trees and bushes are heaving with fruit.

Blackberries, apples, pears and plums.

Popping over to my friend’s house for a play date the other week was very fruitful indeed. I left at the end with a tub of blackberries from her garden and cooking apples from her father in laws tree.

I made the obligatory crumble of course, but having a few blackberries and an apple left,  Liv and I decided to make some muffins.


I have used this basic recipe for years and just change the flavour and fruit according to what I have in.


4oz Castor sugar

4oz Butter

9oz Self raising flour

1tsp Baking powder

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 pt milk

1 apple finely chopped

A handful of blackberries



Pre heat the oven to 16o c

Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

Combine the eggs one at a time and then add the milk and vanilla extract.

Fold in the flour and baking powder.

Add your fruit, spoon into muffin cases and bake in the oven for around 30 mins.



For best results,  eat straight from the oven with a big cup of tea. Enjoy 🙂
