Light raspberry and apple muffins

Written by
The perfect snack to pair with a cup of tea or coffee!

There’s nothing better than homemade muffins that are warm and fresh from the oven, and this delicious recipe is bound to be a family favourite.

Anyone who loves baking will know that fruit-filled muffins are some of the most low-maintenance treats to make. They come out so light and moist with hardly any effort in the kitchen. They’re best served fresh but will also taste incredibly delicious when frozen and reheated at a later date. Delicious!

  • 1 cup (250g) sour cream
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar, plus 2 teaspoons extra to sprinkle
  • Finely grated rind of 1 lemon

  • 1 1/3 cups (200g) plain flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
