Fresh Raspberry and Lemon Muffins

Raspberry and Lemon Muffins

If you have been fruit picking and are lucky enough to have too many raspberries, this is a great recipe for using them up. And if you don’t have fresh raspberries, I’m sure you could use frozen.

Fresh raspberries and the juice and zest from a fresh lemon flavour these muffins. They really are a taste of summer.

Raspberries and lemon: a perfect match



250g SR flour

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

125g soft brown sugar

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

125ml light olive oil

100g natural yogurt

2 eggs

200g raspberries


Set the oven to 180ºC and line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper cases. This recipe may make one or two more than 12, depending on how full you want to fill your cases. Mine were almost to the top.

Put the flour, bicarbonate of soda, soft brown sugar and lemon zest in a bowl and mix well.

Mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, yogurt and eggs.

Combine the dry and wet ingredients.

Add the raspberries and mix to distribute evenly.

Divide between the paper cases and bake for around 20 minutes, or until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out dry.

  1. They look very delicious, I love the combination of fresh raspberries and lemon.. Well done 🙂

  2. They look lovely and fluffy. I’ve been stashing a lot of our raspberry glut in the freezer – I think I need to fish them back out again for a muffin baking binge…

  3. They look so perfect! Mine never seem to look as good.

  4. Raspberry muffins is one of my favourite muffins. Wish I could go berry picking and hoard some berries!
