- Makes 12
- 250g butter
- 200g sugar
- 5 eggs
- 250g plain flour,
- 20g baking powder
- 70g blackberries
In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon until well-blended.
Add the eggs, one by one, mixing thoroughly with each addition. We only had goose eggs !!! But it worked.
Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl and lightly fold into the egg mixture.
Divide the muffin mixture among the muffin cases, filling each case no more than two-thirds full. Press a blackberry into each filled muffin case. I decided that one blackberry per case was not enough, so I added about 100g or so to the mixture & gently folded through. It worked so well and the colour was amazing.
Place the muffin cases on baking sheets. Bake each batch for 15-20 minutes until risen and golden.
