They are simple to make, and they are moist, tender and packed with flavours. If you plan to use frozen berries, don't thaw them as it will stain the batter purple, and you may have to bake the muffins slightly longer than the stated time.
- 300 g Blackberries
- 100 g Hazelnuts, chopped
- 250 g All-purpose flour
- 3 tsp Baking powder
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 2 Eggs
- 200 ml Buttermilk
- 150 g Brown sugar
- 130 g Butter, melted
- 50 ml Baileys
- 1/2 tbsp Vanilla sugar
- Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Prepare 15-17 muffin cups with paper liners. Place a small skillet over medium heat, add the chopped hazelnuts and toast until golden, stirring occassionally. Remove and cool.
- Whisk together the 60 grams of roasted chopped hazelnuts, flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, brown sugar, butter and Baileys. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix together with a few light strokes, just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Gently fold in the fresh blackberries.
- Mix the rest of roasted chopped hazelnuts and vanilla sugar in a small bowl. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Sprinkle the vanilla mixture on the top of each muffin. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of 1 or 2 of the muffins comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
