These lovely, easy raspberry muffins are oh-so-simple to make – and the best thing is the kids will love helping you make them!

Ingredients

  • 250g (9oz) plain flour
  • 1tbsp baking powder
  • 100g (4oz) golden caster sugar
  • 75g (3oz) butter, chilled
  • 1 large egg
  • 175ml (6fl oz) milk
  • 150g (5oz) fresh raspberries
  • Extra sugar for sprinkling (optional)

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF, gas mark 6). Line a 12-hole muffin tray with paper muffin cases.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
