These fruity muffins are a lovely treat if you happen to have an abundance of fresh blackberries! In fact, you don't need to limit yourself to blackberries. Blueberries, raspberries or even diced strawberries work fine. Adjust the amount of sugar if you prefer a less sweet muffin.
I picked 4kg of blackberries the other day from the Walthamstow marshes in London (so much more than back in the country!) and made two batches of jam with 2kg (with and without apples, and froze the rest) this was the best. It has a bit of a Christmasy taste because of the cinnamon and nutmeg. Here's my recipe - finite measurements are for squares :-)
This a chunky blackberry jam that requires no pectin. A foolproof jam recipe that can also be frozen in the freezer if you aren't processing it in sterilised jars.
Very simple fruit pudding cooked with a scone topping; you can use almost any kind of fruit, just vary the amount of sugar accordingly.
This decadent crumble will knock the socks off any dinner guest. A deliciously crunchy, oaty, nutty and buttery crumble sits on top of a juicy apple and blackberry base. Enjoy as is, with cream, ice cream or custard.
