With Autumn well and truly upon us, I’ve been thinking of cosy things to do indoors. One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is bake. I wanted to make something really yummy that incorporated my favourite in-season fruits and favourite flavours. I absolutely love making fruit crumbles and thought using them as inspiration to create a muffin would be absolutely delicious. At this time of year I love to pick Bramley Apples at my local pick your own farm and forage for delicious blackberries, the two fruits are so perfect for Autumn and compliment each other perfectly. These muffins are absolutely packed with fruit and go perfectly with a hot cup of tea on a cold day.

These come out absolutely delicious and the moist muffin and big chunks of fruit are absolutely delicious together. I’d love to try these with other seasonal fruits. Watch this space as I’d love to share another variation soon.
I’ve made a few batches of these already as my family absolutely love them and keep eating them really quickly. I managed to save a couple to take on an Autumnal walk with my mum. We enjoyed them outdoors with a thermos of tea and it was absolutely lovely. Who says picnics are just for summer!
