    thanks for that Frostie - how much is a "cup" in these american recipes?
    Though of course it easy to convert the recipes to weights and measures, I've converted myself to the "cup" style of cooking. I just use a little cup I have, and do the rest accordingly. So much easier than weighing.

    An American cup measure holds 8 fl oz of liquid.

    If you're using US recipes remember a US pint is 16 fl oz not 20;).So an American quart is 32 fl oz (not 40).

    I made these yesterday and they are absolutely gorgeous! I changed the recipe a bit to use what i had and make it a bit healthier and have given the origional and my version!

    Raspberry and oat muffins makes 12

    100g - 31/2 oz oatmeal (I used porridge oats)
    250ml - 9fl oz skimmed milk
    1 med egg
    200g - 7oz golden castor sugar (I used soft brown sugar as this is less processed)
    150g - 5oz p flour (I used 1/3rd wm self r and 2/3 plain white)
    2tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp bicarb
    100g- 31/2 oz raspberries (I used them straight from the freezer)
    2tsp rolled oats to sprinkle

    preheat oven to 190 and line 12 muffin tins

    mix oats and milk in a bowl

    mix sugar, oil and egg in a jug

    sieve flour, bicarb and baking powder into a bowl add raspberries and toss gently to coat in flour

    stir egg mixture in then oats mixture and spoon into muffin cases, sprinkle with oats and bake for about 15-20 mins

    you could use, bluebarries, chopped apple, apricots or just about any other fruit, add 1/2 tsp cinamon for extra flavour if you like it,

    these realy are lovely and low in saturated fat too approx 200 calories per muffin:rotfl:

    these sound lovely, I think I will try them over the next few days.

    Can you freeze them once they're made do you think ? Otherwise I will be forced to stuff myself silly with 12 of them which would be 2400 calories :rotfl:

    Ooo yummy - thanks. Raspberries are my favourite fruit :)
    When you say you used porrage oats instead of oatmeal, did you grind them to oatmeal consistency or just have a courser texture?

    We use loads of oats, so these sound like they could become a family favourite

    OOPs your right twink! thanks for pointing that out! sorry everyone you also need

    50ml - 2fl oz olive oil

    I just used porridge oats straight from the pack no grinding or anything! I didnt even think of that but they were great!

    Yes i think white choc chips would be heavenly in these too thanks

    I would think that if you used fresh fruit it would be fine to freeze them or make half the recipe maybe? however i find that when i bake people seem to come out of the woodwork and its soon all eaten up!!:beer:

    Just made these muffins tonight and they are definitely very yummy. DD2 says they are gorgeous - better than the carrot/sultana ones I made last week, which I thought were lovely. OH has just had one and says the same - you're onto a winner with this one.

    Thank you very much janeawej:A
