I found this simple recipe and stirred in the collected fruit to make 6 of each. I had to cycle down to the supermarket for some muffin cases; they only had boring brown so when I have made 75 (?when, never!) I will try for something more jolly!
You sift together:
9 oz plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
4oz of golden caster sugar
Straight from fridge:you grate 3 oz butter and mix it up with dry ingredients
You add an egg and 6 fl oz of milk.
Lightly combine with a fork (do not over beat)
Fold in 5oz of raspberries (or any other fruit!)
Bake 20/25mins at 200 C in muffin cases in large hole tins (you can do it without but they do hold shape better in the tins).
Sprinkle with caster sugar as they cool.
Lot cheaper than Costa! and quite straight forward.
That's two new cakes I have learnt this month - muffins and carrot cake.
What next - after 45 years of marriage is it time to master a decent fruit cake for Xmas? My husband's father was a master baker and for the first 20 years of marriage I was forbidden to go near the icon cake making.
