Kayleigh and Ethan love to be in the kitchen and help to bake/cook so when we received some baking goodies from Bright Horizons childcare in Chesham we couldn’t wait to give one of their recipes a try.
Now my two take after me, they have a sweet tooth so it was always going to be a pudding that we gave a go and the summer fruit muffins are a great recipe to try out with little ones. We ran out of the raspberries and blueberries before the bake (Kayleigh and Ethan eat so much fruit!) so we made a small adjustment and added strawberries in their replacement.
This muffins are super simple to make and both the kids loved them! As you can see too, even with our adjustment of fruit, they came out really well. You could make a whole variety of different muffin flavours by just swapping out the fruit in this recipe for another fruit.

- 105g Wholemeal flour

- Start by soaking the bran flakes in milk and set aside for 10 minutes
- In the meantime sift together the flour and baking powder before creaming together the margarine and sugar in a separate bowl.
- Next beat the egg into the mixture
- Sir in alternative spoonfuls of soaked bran flakes and flour mixture to the egg and margarine mixture.
- Gently fold the fruit into the mix ensuring everything is evenly distributed
- Place the paper cases in the muffin tray and fill each one to the half way mark with the mixture.
