Gooseberry muffins

24 Jul

Yesterday I made some muffins based on a recipe supplied by those kind folk over at Abel and Cole (who deliver a veggie box to us every week normally with at least one thing that I have no idea what to do with.)

I made a few tweaks.  A nice breakfast muffin with some tart gooseberries in.  I love the colour of these purple gooseberries.


  • 20g margarine
  • 30g apple puree
  • 175g spelt flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 40g fruit sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 120 ml oat mil
  • 120g fresh gooseberries


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and line baking tray.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  3. Melt butter, add apple puree, milk and whisked egg.
  4. Add wet mixture to dry and then fold in berries
  5. Soon into muffin holes
  6. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes till golden and skewer comes out clean
  7. Cool and eat

I used my fairy tray and it made 14 small muffins.

    Looks yummy! We had a gooseberry bush in our garden when I was growing up, but haven’t eaten them in years!
