Best Ever Fruit Muffins

I love baking with my one year old. Not that she does very much of the actual baking, at the moment, but just having her there next to me in her kitchen – knowing that she’s taking in what I’m doing – brings me such joy.

This is a very, very easy muffin recipe (easier even than all of those recipes that say they’re the easiest ever!) and toddlers that are slightly older than mine will be able to join in easily.

This recipe uses frozen summer fruits, but really any frozen berries will do. This makes it perfect for clearing out those bits from the freezer! And means you’re more likely to have the ingredients to hand when you fancy doing some baking together.
