11902476_10153622352913804_6158422640430648284_nA necessary batch of muffins this week after collecting kilograms of blackberries from my brother’s allotment.

Following recipe is for 12 muffins.

Ingredients:

85g unsalted butter

200g plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

100g caster sugar

pinch salt

200ml buttermilk

1 large egg

zest of lemon

200g blackberries

3 tablespoons chopped stem ginger

3 tablespoons ginger syrup from stem ginger jar

2 tsps ground ginger

Method

Heat oven to 200degreesC fan

Melt butter and leave to cool

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and ground ginger in a bowl

Mix beaten egg, buttermilk and butter together

Slowly add wet ingredients to dry

Add chopped ginger and blackberries and gently fold

Share the mixture evenly between muffin cases in muffin tin

Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and a skewer comes out with no mix other than blackberry juice. Turn out of tin onto cooling rack. Can be eaten warm but hot blackberries burn!
