Cherry and Almond Muffins

I found some British cherries at the supermarket yesterday (quite an achievement - see here!) and with a half opened container of Greek yogurt and a half opened packet of ground almonds, I set about making these Cherry and Almond Muffins.

200g Plain Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
100g Ground Almonds
150g Golden Caster Sugar
1 egg, beaten
125g Melted Butter
175ml Greek Yogurt
200g Cherries, pitted and halved
1 over ripe Banana.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 180c
Step 2: Line 12 hole muffing tin
Step 3: Sieve together dry ingredients
Step 4: Mix together sugar, butter, egg and yogurt and tip into dry ingredients
Step 5 Add cherries and mashed banana and stir briefly - do not over mix
Step 6: Place in oven for approx 25 minutes.


  1. You can never have too many muffins :)
    Cherry and almond are a perfect flavour combo. I love how you used fresh cherries. They look fab.

  2. Beth what a great combo of flavours. Your muffins look perfect! Looking forward to seeing your Blackberry muffins ;o)


  3. I like muffins or any baked good that does not involve a gob of over sweet frosting, these sound delish!

  4. How sad that British cherries are in such decline, I'm glad you're doing your bit to help. Your muffins sound fab, minus the banana of course. :-)

  5. Wow, those look so pretty! I'd love some of your cherry muffins for breakfast!

  6. Beth what great flavours and brilliant looking muffins :)

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
