Raspberry Rise & Shine Muffins

Raspberry Muffins (14)

Monday mornings.  The bleakest point of the week.  Another lovely weekend over, five long days till the next one starts.  And yet I usually trot into work with a smile on my face.  How do I do it?  With the Monday morning muffin!  I’ve started making big batches of muffins, freezing them, and defrosting one or two on Sunday night so I can have a Monday morning treat breakfast warmed up in the oven.  At the moment I’ve got cranberry and poppy seed, chocolate hazlenut, banana bran and these raspberry delights in the freezer, waiting to brighten up my week.

2 eggs

1.  Preheat the oven to 190C and line a muffin tray with paper cases.

4.  Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ones and mix well until combined.

5.  Gently add the raspberries and fold them in – I used frozen ones to try and retain the chunks of fruit, but it’s quite nice when they squish and leave trails of red through the mix.

6.  Spoon into the prepared cases, filling them generously.
