Sleepy Sunday - Raspberry Muffins for mum

If you are off to spend  Mothers Day with your mum, why not cook her some of these deliciously easy raspberry muffins and show your appreciation.  They are special enough to say a big thank you and lovely served with a nice cup of tea (and a sit down).

We used Loseley Summer Meadow Butter and enjoyed it's gorgeous taste and that it was soft enough to cook with straight from the fridge.

Self raising flour 200g (7oz)
