Our redcurrant bush is beautifully bejewelled at the moment. We’ve been eating them with meringues, breakfast cereal and this morning I found a recipe for redcurrant muffins on this website. Perfect to take to my cousin’s party on the beach on Sunday.
175g plain white flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
100g caster sugar plus some for sprinkling
1 large egg
Preheat oven to 180˚. Sift flour, baking powder together into a bowl, add sugar. Beat egg with milk and melted butter. Add to flour, and fold in quickly. Add redcurrants, and try not to burst them! Spoon into a 12 cup muffin pan, and sprinkle some caster sugar over the top. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
