So much to see...so little time to see it all.

Go wild with this Mulberry Muffin recipe


I don't buy mulberries at my local farmers market for $5.00 a punnet. I might be just lucky, but there are several 'wild' mulberry trees close to where I live, so there are mulberries aplenty during their short fruiting season. Their fruit laden branches are hanging quite nicely over back fences, growing wild along creeks or in parks. As far I can see, they are unloved by their owners and largely ignored by everyone else. So what to do with all this free fruit?

Well I've made a fair amount of jam, put a few bags in the freezer and kept a few fresh to throw on some cereal. But my favourite way is by making Mulberry Muffins. I add a fair amount of cinnamon and even serve it with cinnamon butter for that intense cinnamon flavour. A dusting of icing sugar adds that pro-touch.

This recipe makes six muffins.

Ingredients

1 cup self raising flour
cup caster sugar
1 tsp baking soda
cup milk
cup melted butter
1 cup mulberries
1 egg
2 tsp cinnamon

Method

Melt butter and then blend well with the sugar, egg and milk. Combine with the dry ingredients and blend well until you have a thick mixture. Add mulberries and mix gently. Place the batter in a greased muffin tin and bake for 20-25 minutes at 180c.

What are the sugar milk and butter amounts as the amounts come up with a funny character on my computer? Thanks

would it make any difference if I used regular sugar instead of caster?

I just used 2 cups flower, one cup sugar, one cup milk, 1/2 cup oil, 1 cup mulberries and 1 tsp baking soda with a fair amount of cinnamon... turned out awesome.
