Top tip: Add other fruit to this basic recipe: blueberries, chopped dried apricots, mashed ripe bananas or diced apples all taste great.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF, gas mark 6). Line a 12-hole muffin tray with paper muffin cases.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and stir in the sugar. Coarsely grate the chilled butter into the bowl and stir with a fork to coat in the flour mixture.
  3. Beat together the egg and milk then pour into the bowl. Mix lightly with a fork until just combined. Take care not to over-beat the mixture - it should still be a little lumpy. Gently fold in the raspberries.
  4. Spoon into the muffin cases. Bake for 20-25 mins until the muffins are risen and golden. Sprinkle lightly with a little extra sugar while still warm.

Really easy to make - taste lovely. My girls enjoyed making these!

These are in the oven, had to use defrosted and drained frozen raspberries but mixture looked right as they went into the moulds/cases. used a lacto free milk as usual for my son but tastes the same :) Fingers crossed as I have my 4 & 6 yr old sons staring into the oven for the nxt 20ish minutes lol

Fab my sons love

I've added strawberries and blueberries to this recipe and both worked brilliantly. Not bad considering I'm having to use egg and milk substitutes which usually leave cakes flat and stodgy.

Tanya Tonissen

Wow, so easy. I had this ready for the muffin tin before my four yo realised and insisted on helping! Love it!

Nicola Crocker

I thought these were a bit 'doughy' and they stuck to the cake cases quite a lot
