Raspberry and lemon is a pretty classic flavour combination, and lemon in cakes is always a winner too – so put them together and you can’t go wrong! Since raspberries aren’t in season at the moment, this recipe calls for frozen raspberries, (which are often cheaper than the fresh variety too!) which add bursts of flavour when you bite into these little muffins. They’d also make a pretty great addition to lunchboxes since they travel well and are also nut-free. This recipe is starting to tick all the boxes!
