Blackberry Muffins

With the hedgerows supplying us with an abundance of juicy blackberries it would be a shame not to conjure up some delicious delights with these little gems.

I wrapped Abbie up this morning, strapped her into her buggy and off we went blackberry picking, while it’s fair to say she wasn’t overly enthusiastic about our adventure, I on the other hand was delighted to bring home ‘free’ food for baking!

Blackberry Muffins.


450g Plain Flour
175g Caster Sugar

1 Tsp Baking Powder
110g Butter
2 large Eggs
175ml Milk
Grated zest of one orange
150g approx fresh Blackberries


Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F/gas 4.
Line a 12 cup muffin tin with cases.

Mix flour, sugar & baking powder together.

Rub the butter into the flour mixture.

Beat the eggs & milk together & mix into the flour & mix to a stiff batter.

Add in the orange zest & blackberries, mix well.

Divide between the muffin cases & bake for 20-25 minutes.

Lightly dust with icing sugar and serve with a well earned cuppa.
