Pretty little Raspberry Muffins

As much as I like to cook I somehow don't much care about baking. But sometimes, very rarely, I find a recipe that just looks so pretty and easy I give it a try. This one I found in one of the little cooking magazines you find at all the French supermarket tills. "Mini cakes Coco-Framboises" - little coconut and raspberry cakes which for want of powdered coconut in my pantry turned into little hazelnut and raspberry bite sized muffins (I didn't have little cakes forms either....)

We have a stall at Vaison's Tuesday market that sells the very best fresh raspberries, so as long as they are still available I will definitely do these again. And I will stick to powdered hazelnut because I think that coconut and raspberries are not all that great a combination.

Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Mix 150gr soft, non salted butter with 100 gr powdered sugar and 15 gr vanille sugar. Add 3 eggs (mix in one by one) and 100 gr flour, 15 gr baking powder and 100 gr powdered hazelnuts. Mix well and spoon into little paper cups. Push one raspberry into each cup then bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. These sound delish. I don't have hazelnut, do you suppose almond flour would work?

  6. These look very tasty! Very happy we could catch up at the Festival Café a couple of weeks back. Next time, we will have to plan so we can spend a little more time together. Have a great day.
