Summer fruit muffins

This one’s for Tim, after he used the banana and chocolate muffin recipe to make blueberry muffins, and it didn’t quite work.

  • 280g plain flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 110g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 240ml milk
  • 90ml corn oil
  • 140g summer fruit (any berries, either alone or in combination: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, cherries etc.), fresh or frozen (don’t thaw frozen berries); larger berries should be coarsely chopped.
  1. Pre-heat fan oven to 160 degrees
  2. In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, salt.  Stir in sugar.
  3. In another bowl, beat egg and stir in milk and oil.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry.  Stir until just combined, folding in berries at the end using 2-3 gentle strokes to avoid crushing fruit.
  5. Spoon mixture into muffin cases and then bake for 20 mins or when tops are lightly browned and spring back when pressed gently.  If frozen fruit was used then add 4-5 minutes to the cooking time.
