Lemon & Red Currant Muffins Recipe

Light fluffy muffins bursting with tangy lemon and a sharp sweetness of red currants.





  • Step 1.

    Preheat your oven to 180°C and prepare a muffin tin with muffin cases.
  • Step 2.

    In a large bowl, mix together 200g of self-raising flour, 1 tsp of baking powder, 150g of caster sugar, and zest of 1 lemon.
  • Step 3.

    In another bowl, whisk together 2 large eggs, 125ml of milk, 85g of melted butter, and juice of 1 lemon.
  • Step 4.

    Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
  • Step 5.

    Fold in 125g of red currants gently, trying not to burst the currants.
  • Step 6.

    Scoop the mixture into the muffin cases, filling them about two-thirds full.
  • Step 7.

    Bake for about 25 minutes until the muffins are golden and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  • Step 8.

    Let the muffins cool in the tin for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Step 9.

    Dust with icing sugar and enjoy!
