These muffins smell, look and taste so great that no one would believe how easy they are to make


These muffins have the perfect blend of sharp and sweet. Oozing red berries and moist cake taste great with a little sugar hit from the icing sugar. As well as being easy to make, you don't need an electric whisk as you can mix everything easily by hand.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 - 30 minutes
Makes: 12 servings

Ingredients
1 banana
175g golden caster sugar (regular would be ok too)
2 large eggs
75g creme fraiche
75g butter
300g plain flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
250g mixed frozen berries (I like a blend of sweet and sharper fruits. My mix included red and blackcurrants, strawberries, raspberries and cherries)
12 paper cases
2 tablespoons icing sugar
A little warm water

Method
Take the frozen fruit out of the freezer and weigh out 250g. Leave to soften while you continue with the recipe.
Chop up the banana

Slicing the banana first makes it quicker to mash and mix with a fork later


Add the golden caster sugar to the banana, mashing and mixing together with a fork. A ripe banana will be much easier to mash. Continue until you have a smooth consistency.

The bananas are the secret key to this recipe

It doesn't take much effort for the banana and sugar to combine


Add the eggs and mix thoroughly
Add the creme fraiche and mix through
Melt the butter, add to the mixture and mix through.
Sift in the flour and baking powder and then mix well. It will look quite dry to start but keep mixing and you will get a good batter.

A wooden spoon is ideal for combining the flour, baking powder and banana mix


Carefully mix through the frozen fruit, the juices will start to ooze through the mixture.

Don't overmix the fruit, it looks great when some of the red juices have stained the cake mix and some parts remain untouched


Divide the mixture into 12 muffin or large cupcake cases, set inside a muffin tin.

Use two metal spoons to get the muffin mix easily into the paper cases, one to scoop and a smaller one to scrape off the spoon


Bake in the oven for 25 minutes (180c or 160c in a fan oven). After that time, stick a skewer into a muffin and remove. It it comes out clean then your muffins are ready. If not, return to the oven for a few more minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack. Be careful of touching the warm oozing fruit as the natural sugars in the fruit make it very hot.

Mix the icing sugar with a little warm water until you have a slightly runny consistency. Dribble it over the muffins and you're ready to serve.

No skill required to decorate, just drizzle the icing sugar from a spoon back and forth quickly over the muffins


This is such a straightforward recipe that's really just about mixing everything together. This makes it idea for kids as they can easily get involved throughout the process. They will also love the end result. For more ideas of cooking with kids try some ideas from recipeyum or MyKidCraft.
