Rhubarb and raspberry crumble muffins are a really delicious afternoon snack or make just as nice a breakfast. Enjoy them as a lovely pudding or even serve to guests. Give your muffins an extra crunch by topping them with a simple crumble. The rhubarb and raspberry flavours make these muffins the perfect early summer treat.

- 360g plain flour
- 370g caster sugar
- 1tsp salt
- 1 ½tsp baking powder
- ½tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 380g rhubarb bio live yogurt
- 2 eggs
- Vanilla extract
- 70g unsalted butter, melted
- 250g raspberries
- 75g plain flour
- 65g unsalted butter
- 50g caster sugar
Pre-heat the oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas 3 and line a 12-hole muffin tray with paper cases.
Begin by making the crumble, add all ingredient to a bowl or food mixer and rub in the fat until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, place to one side.
To make the muffins place the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl (ideally use a food mixer), mix ingredients together.
Add the yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract to the flour mixture and beat until smooth. Add the melted butter and whisk well to incorporate and ensure the batter is smooth and even. Finally fold in the raspberries gently to disperse.
Spoon the mixture into the cases filling them almost to the top, generously sprinkle the muffins with the crumble mixture.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until the muffins are golden brown and bounce back when pressed. Leave to cool in the tin slightly before removing onto a cooling rack.
