Blackberry & Raspberry Muffins

Blackberry & Raspberry Muffins
Blackberries seem to be in abundance this year and we've picked kilo's and kilo's in the field behind our house. Although we all love a blackberry and apple crumble, I've been developing some new recipes using blackberries and these blackberry and raspberry muffins were a big hit.

I served the muffins warm out of the oven with custard for a quick and easy pudding last night and then popped the leftovers into lunchboxes for treat day at school today. I used half wholemeal flour too which makes them a bit healthier....we'll just overlook the butter and sugar content for the moment 😋. As we've almost survived the first week back at school and work though, I think we deserve a treat.

Blackberry & Raspberry Muffins


  • Try different fruit combinations. I've used blackberry and raspberry here but you could just use one type of fruit or try blueberries and strawberries.
  • If you don't have wholemeal flour, plain white flour is fine.
  • These muffins freeze really well so make a double batch and freeze half for when you need a quick and easy snack.
  • Serve warm with custard for a quick pudding for the kids.... but they taste just as nice cold too.
