These beautiful Raspberry and Oat Muffins are deliciously moist and not too sweet, making them an ideal tea time treat or part of a breakfast buffet table…
The rolled oats provide an excellent texture with a slightly creamy taste, and the raspberries add a brilliant fruity flavour which is very welcome in a muffin such as this.
A dusting of icing sugar and a striking red raspberry nestled on the top earn these lovely muffins a special place in our family recipe collection!
And how simple and enjoyable they are to make! The aroma of baking muffins wafting through the house…what could be nicer on a morning spent pottering about the home…?
Once the morning’s tasks are complete, take a well-earned moment to ‘smell the roses’ and settle down on the couch outside with a few delightful magazines for inspiration and a pretty teapot of steaming Ceylon tea…
I do hope you enjoy these lovely little muffins – or ‘fairy cakes’ as I call them because they are simply so pretty and dainty…
Oh, and I must thank my dear mother for growing these gorgeous raspberries! What a sweet delight to use home-grown organic raspberries in ones baking…they are so sweet and juicy!
