These are fab as a snack, dessert or even breakfast! It’s all about the fruit- there’s tons of it packed in. You can pretty much use any combination of dried fruits in these if you want to substitute any of the ones I’ve chosen. Others that would work well would be dried cranberries, dates, sultanas etc- so find a mix that works for you!
These are really quick and easy to make and they freeze well too!
3 medium eggs
100ml maple syrup or clear honey
225g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp mixed spice
100g fresh or frozen blueberries
100g fresh or frozen raspberries
100g dried apricots
Lightly whisk the 3 eggs in a large bowl
Add the milk and maple syrup or honey
Melt the butter and add that to the bowl too
Mix gently for a minute (not too long)
Sieve the flour, baking powder and mixed spice into the bowl and give it another brief mix until it’s almost smooth
Add in your fresh fruit
Chop the larger dried fruits (prunes and apricots) into small pieces
Add all the dried fruit
Mix together with a spatula or wooden spoon
Pour into 12 muffin cases (or grease the tray and pour straight into the tray) then put into a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 22minutes
Cool in the tray for 10-20mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
