Berry Muffins

Well this recipe is being posted much later than I had planned! Things have been really busy here and my online time got squashed down to zero for a few weeks. But, better late than never, right? 🙂 These muffins are definitely worth waiting for.

I love Dorset Cereals. They are, however, a bit on the pricey side for my budget right now so I just treat myself to a box every so often. This time though I bought a box with a purpose, because Sainsbury’s had given away a free recipe card for some berry muffins made from Dorset Cereals – the Berries and Cherries muesli.

I tried them out for the Mad Tea Party blog hop last month and wow are they delicious!

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes
Makes: 12

Ingredients:
200 g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
100 g Dorset Cereals Berries & Cherries Muesli
225 ml plain yogurt
1 egg, beaten
90 g light brown soft sugar
75 ml semi-skimmed milk
75 ml vegetable oil
100 g berries, fresh or frozen (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)

1. Place 12 muffin cases in a muffin tin and preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6.

2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the muesli and yogurt together. I will add here, somehow I completely missed out the part with the muesli and yogurt here – I added them separately at the end of step 3 and my muffins still came out fine 🙂

3. Add the egg, sugar, milk and oil to the flour mixture and stir to combine.

4. Stir in the muesli mixture (or just add both in separately like I did!) until just combined, then gently stir in the berries (I used frozen raspberries and blackberries).

5. Divide the mixture into the muffin cases and bake for 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean.

6. Leave to cool and then enjoy!

I think when I make them again, and I will make them again, I’ll add about 50 g more frozen berries because as yummy as they were, I think they can handle it 🙂

But, hands down, these were some of the tastiest muffins that I’ve ever had!

This will be my post for this week’s Hearth & Soul Blog Hop 🙂 Be sure to check out the other recipes on there this week and follow my blog for more tasty treats!
