Raspberry Coffee Time muffin

The perfect coffee break treat

  • Prep: 20 mins
    Cook: 30 mins
  • Serves 12
  • Easy

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp finely ground coffee
  • 100g butter
  • 50g pine nuts
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 400g self-raising flour
  • 175g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 284ml carton buttermilk or soured cream
  • 225g fresh raspberries

Method

  1. Stir 2 tbsp boiling water into the coffee. Set aside for a few mins. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Cut out 12 x 10cm squares of baking parchment. Melt the butter, use a little to brush the insides of a deep 12-hole muffin tin, and leave the rest to cool slightly. Line the tin with the paper squares, so they stick up a bit. (Or use paper cases.) Toast half the pine nuts. Strain and mix the coffee with the milk.

  2. Mix the flour, toasted pine nuts, sugar and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs, then mix in the buttermilk, cooled butter and coffee. Stir this into the flour mixture until almost combined – it will need only a few stirs and the mix will feel light and airy. Tip in the raspberries, give a few more stirs to finish the mixing, but don’t overbeat or the mix will toughen. Spoon the mix into the muffin tins – they will be very full.

  3. Scatter the rest of the pine nuts on top, and bake for about 25 mins until risen and golden. Let them cool in the tin a few minutes, then move to a cooling rack. Eat within 2 days.
