9-10-13 Rachel's muffin 4BWho ever would have thought a tub of fruit yoghurt could be put to such fine use. Nearly a whole tub, explains the yummy moistness of these beauties. I made these muffins for the first time when writing this review for Rachel’s Organic Yoghurt. Talking about such naughty sugary snacks in the same breath as an ”hooray for sugar free baby yoghurts” didn’t seem right. Wanting to make something delicious, and yes a little bit naughty, for my friends birthday was all the excuse I needed to revisit this mix.
The crumble topping is pure genius!

What you’ll need to (makes 12 muffins)

75g plain flour, 65g unsalted butter, 50g caster sugar for the crumble topping.
360g plain flour
370g caster sugar
1tsp salt
1 1⁄2tsp baking powder
1⁄2tsp bicarbonate of soda
380g Rachel’s low fat mango yogurt
2 eggs
Vanilla extract
70g unsalted butter, melted
250g raspberries

how to make mango and raspberry crumble muffins

1. Pre-heat oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas 3. Line a 12 hole muffin tray with cases

2. Begin by making the crumble; rub in the fat until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, place to one side

3. To make the muffins place flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and ideally using a food mixer, mix ingredients together

4. Add the yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract to the flour mixture and beat until smooth

5. Add the melted butter and whisk well to incorporate and ensure the batter is smooth and even

6. Finally fold in the raspberries gently to disperse

7. Spoon the mixture into the cases, filling them almost to the top before generously sprinkling the muffins with the crumble mixture

8. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until the muffins are golden brown and bounce back when pressed. Leave to cool in the tin slightly before removing onto a cooling rack

I’ve baked with plain yoghurt before but wouldn’t have thought to use fruit yoghurt. Rachel’s Organic have a whole heap of fine recipe suggestions on their website. If you needed any more persuading about the virtues of this particular flavour from their low fat range Rachel’s describe it as ”a sumptuous sunshine yogurt, a blissful combination of the world’s finest and juiciest organic mangos infused with its signature smooth, thick textured yogurt, to create a beautiful saffron-coloured flavour laced with succulent mango pieces”.

Disclosure:  I received a free sample of Rachel’s Organic Yoghurt for the purposes of this review.  I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.

Weekly reflections on #myheartylife - feeling thankful for passed on sewing skills, practicing self-care and finding beauty in learning to ride a bike.  More on the blog, link in bio.  Thanks for reading x

#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #easypeasylemoncake Fondly thinking of my Nan as I mix up the lemon cake batter with L.  When I baked with her as a child we sometimes used a wooden spoon for mixing but I was in awe of the hand held whisk with the handle that seemed so miraculous.  I love that @oxouk have a modern day version for mornings when our slow pace doesn't want to be interrupted by the whirr of machinery #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #bakingwithkids #childhoodunplugged #slowsaturdays #lovedungarees Trying to decide whether to make lemon cake or these beetroot and chocolate muffins.  I guess the boys will determine that as I've all the ingredients for one but not the other! Love having an on-line cookbook to browse through in my blog.  #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #beetrootandchocolatemuffins #bakingwithkids #flashbackfriday here you go @cathy.heller my 2.5 year old self saying Hi to your 6 year old self!  My love of gardening must have started at a young age.  I'm pleased to say I get most of the water on the plants these days! 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #throwbackphotos #gardeningwithkids #70skid Writing clears my head. I write the words it's too scary to mutter.  Sharing the words is scary too but in the sharing comes the feeling of being less alone in it.  I dumped these words in a blog post 3 years ago.  Time to let them fly and find someone who might be having a hard time today. Link to "how it feels sometimes parenting a 3 year old" in bio.  Much love x #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #parentingistough #writingastherapy #newblogpost #gentleparenting Thanks Anna @imaginationtree for this brilliant toddler activity idea.  23 month old Luca filling up muffin tins with balls using our fab easygrip @oxouk tongs #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #thelennyagency Regrann from @musicalgeorgemoorey -  Alice White & George Shilling in action a few hours ago for session 6 of #spacesgloucester  @gloucestercathedral #nationallotteryfunded Luca and I discovered the most amazing place in town today.  A beautiful craft space where you pay £4 to make anything from beautiful beaded canvases to painted ornaments to mosaic door signs.  What a peaceful way to spend an hour making a canvas for the boys.  Luca helped too, mostly by bimbling about picking up pots of beads and letters. If you're in Gloucester you must check out @kftreasureseekers .  Open daily including Saturdays and available for parties.  We'll definitely be back!
