Rasberry Muffins

  • 60g butter (melted) or 60ml Flora Cuisine (Which Maxi used)
  • 200g plain flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 120 ml of milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Schwartz allspice
  • 150g raspberries

How to make Raspberry Muffins


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, 180 for a fan oven, or gas mark 6.

Melt the butter in the microwave, and set it aside to cool or alternatively use 60ml Flora Cuisine.

In a large bowl combine all your dry ingredients (bar the raspberries), the flour, the baking powder, the bicarb, Schwartz allspice and the sugar.

In a measuring jug, beat together the milk, the egg and the Flora Cuisine or melted butter and the vanilla extract (you need to see our tip in the video on how to transform Schwartz vanilla pods into homemade vanilla extract.

Tip – always get your kids to break eggs into a separate container, that way if the shell goes in it is easy to remove. Also if is easier to remove shell with shell rather than a spoon.

Pour into the dry ingredients, and mix until combined.

Fold in the raspberries, but don’t mix them too much, or the mixture will turn pink.

Put 12 paper muffin cases in a muffin tray. Then scoop the mixture into the paper cases.

Tip – Use an ice cream scoop for filling the cases, that way they are much easier for kids to fill the cake cases and also you can a measured amount meaning that they all cook evenly. 

Bake for 25 minutes.

Allow to cool and enjoy.

Tip – This basic muffin recipe is fantastic for adapting.  You can swap out the raspberries for any other for fruit such as blueberries, strawberries or pineapple.
