Ingredients

  • 12 small or 10 large Plums                   
  • 40ml (cordial works) Blackcurrant syrup        
  • 3 medium beaten Eggs                                   
  • 150g Caster sugar                     
  • 200g Flour (plain/spelt)            
  • 50g Ground almonds               
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Baking powder                
  • ¼ teaspoon Bicarb of soda                   
  • ¼ teaspoon Fine salt                             
  • 200g Crème fraiche                   
  • 50g melted Butter    

Method

  1. Line 12 cup muffin tray with folded paper or muffin cases and heat oven to 200c
  2. Cut plums into 8 and drizzle with the blackcurrant cordial (taking the stones out)
  3. Mix the eggs and sugar together. In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture, stir 4 or 5 times and then add the crème fraiche and butter then stir 4 times. Next add the fruit and juices and stir 4 times more.
  4. Fill the muffin cases with the mixture (an ice cream scoop works well for this)
  5. The cases should only be ¾ full.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes and then turn the oven down to 180c and cook for 6-8 mind more.
  7. Test with a skewer to see if the muffins are cooked (it should come out clean if they are ready)
  8. These can be frozen but they get eaten too fast in my kitchen and never make the freezer!
