Berry Nice Muffins!!
These aren't just any old muffins.... they're award winning muffins and easy enough for children to make! Reasonably healthy, contain fruit and are great as a snack or in a lunch box.
At The Pumpkin Patch workshop on Saturday morning we'll all be busy making these lovely fruity muffins, just as we did at the Dinefwr Food Festival about year ago. They're also great made with dried fruit such as apricots (and chocolate chips work well too!)
Have a go yourself and let me know how you get on. If you don't have the time, send you son or daughter along to The Pumpkin Patch cookery classes and they'll bring some home for you to try!!
