Essentials recipe These almond flavoured muffins from Essentials magazine only take 20 minutes to prepare and contain just 238 calories each and lots of fresh and juicy raspberries


  • 3 medium free-range eggs
  • 125g corn oil
  • 200ml semi-skimmed milk
  • Few drops almond extract
  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 3/4tsp baking powder
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 200g fresh raspberries
  • 40g whole natural almonds, roughly chopped

Oven tips:

  • Oven temperatures do vary, so cooking times in recipes are always approximate.
  • Fan ovens are hotter, so make sure you adjust your oven to 10-20 degrees lower than stated (check your manufacturerís guide).
  • Make sure you leave time to pre-heat the oven before baking.
  • Invest in an oven thermometer, you might be surprised what the temp really is!
  • Never look into the oven too early - only after three-quarters of the cooking time is it safe.
