Raspberry Muffins

rose cakes

Just ahead of the Easter Weekend I received a little parcel in the post. The lovely people at Natvia sent me a box of baking goodies. As if I needed any further excuse to spend Easter weekend in the kitchen 🙂

I love fruit muffins and raspberry are my favourites. These little beauties are really simple to make, they’re gluten free and they look gorgeous.

3 eggs

60g Natvia 

Half tsp vanilla paste

HERE’S HOW

Blitz the cake mix ingredients together in a food processor. And divide evenly into 4 deep muffin trays. I prefer to use silicone trays so that they’re easier to pop out once baked.

Bake in the oven at 160C (fan) for 25-30 minutes.

Blitz the cashew cream ingredients together. The raspberries will turn the cream a gorgeous pink colour.

Once the muffins are baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool.

I like using an apple corer to scope the centre of the muffin out so that you can fill it with cashew cream.

Decorate with rose petals and fresh raspberries.
