Raspberry season has now hit and we visited an amazing ‘pick your own’ farm yesterday where the bushes were dripping with ripe red fruit. Quite a contrast to when we went to pick strawberries in early June. Never seen so many on each bush as we did yesterday. There are only so many raspberries we can eat in one sitting, so here’s a great muffin recipe to use up some of the squishy ones from the bottom of the container.
The syrupy jam is swirled into the muffin mix before baking, producing a pretty marbled effect that is packed full of raspberry flavour. Summer in muffin form!
