I was in a cafe recently and up on the counter were the most amazing, delicious looking fruit berry muffins with a crumble topping.  I knew I had to make them and put them on the blog.  They are so light and fluffy, I actually think they are the best muffins I’ve ever made and I really hope you enjoy them too – let me know below in the comments.

I used frozen berries as I find they hold together better, but you could add fresh if you’ve got them.  Just be mindful that they may get squished more.

We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day, and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!

Enjoy! x
