Berry Muffins For My Son


The weather today has been wet and cold, but there was plenty for me to do indoors.  Son expressed a desire for some muffins so I whipped up a batch of these Berry Muffins just to keep him happy.

They are quite easy and don’t take very long to make, always a bonus in my book!


Preheat oven to 180C and grease a 12-pan muffin tray.

In a large bowl, finely crush 6 Weetbix (wheat biscuits) and add 1 cup white flour, ¼ cup wholemeal flour, ½ cup white sugar, 2 tsp baking powder, and ½ tsp ground cinnamon.

Mix it all together, then add 1 cup of frozen raspberries and 1 cup of frozen blueberries.

In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 cup milk, 1 egg, and ¼ cup oil.

When the oven is hot enough, pour the milky mixture into the dry mixture and combine together (do not overmix or the muffins will be heavy).

Spoon evenly into the muffin tray and bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through.

Let them stand in the tray for 10 minutes before removing them to a cooling rack.

Rattle the Rat quite enjoys a little piece of muffin as well 😊




  1. That's a fascinating recipe with the weet-bix Margaret - I must share it with my daughter as it would be easy to adapt to be gluten and dairy free. Rattle looks gorgeous - what a soft and shiny coat he looks to have

  2. Miriam makes blueberry muffins quite often and they are always delicious.

  3. Mmm they look good. So does Rattle!

  4. Rattle the Rat is a cutie…not something one ever expects to type!

  5. I wouldn't mind having one of those muffins. Easy, simple recipes are my favourites.

  6. You can
    t beat a good berry muffin.

  7. That is the sweetest photo of Rattle the Rat! Roger would sure love those muffins. I would too, but he is a big fan of them.
