RECIPE: Berry Yoghurt Muffins

Mixed berries are always popular in our house and are devoured whether they’re fresh or frozen.  These delicious muffins are happy with either fresh or frozen berries which makes them an all year round lunch box treat in our house.  I love baking and freezing our treats so that I know I have a ready supply for the impromptu after-school catch-up or crazy day lunchbox.  If you have a berry fan, give these a try.

RECIPE: Berry Yoghurt Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 250g mixed berries washed and hulled, I used half strawberries and half blueberries
  • 2& 1/2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup extra-light olive oil
  • 1 & 3/4 cup strawberry yoghurt

 

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C.  Line a 12 hole muffin pan with paper cases.
  2. Chop half the strawberries and cut the remaining halves into wedges.  Leave the blueberries whole unless they are really big.
  3. Combine flour, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a bowl.  Add egg, oil, yoghurt and chopped strawberries & blueberries.  Stir until just combined.
  4. Spoon mixture into cases and press strawberry wedges into the top.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until browned and firm to touch.  Stand in the pan for 5 minutes then transfer onto a rack to cool.

Happy Baking!

RECIPE: Zucchini, Halloumi & Sprout Fritters

Fritters are a great way to get some extra veggies into the kids.  These fritters, just like the humble brussel sprout divided our table in an instant!  Hubby and I loved them with the word “addictive” being thrown around, the kids, on the other hand, reached for the salad.  If your family loves sprouts or you would like to try a new fritter recipe then give this one a go, just be prepared for the grumbles if they aren’t a favourite.

Missing Something?

Lost Something?

Missing Something?

Taking roll call of the kids belongings at the end of the day for us means that whilst their handball or elastics are safely in the bag their hat or jumper are missing in action.  Never fear at Made For School we know kids will be kids and things will go wandering so our fast shipping means that your new items will be at your desk or door before the original one returns from its stay-cation on the oval, or wherever else they venture.

When you want school uniforms in a hurry jump online and order replacement school uniforms online at Made For School.
