  • Rating:
  • Serves: 10 muffins
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes plus 20 minutes cooling time
  • Effort: easy


  • 225 g plain flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 150 g fresh or frozen raspberries, defrosted if frozen
  • 225 ml soya or rice milk
  • 50 ml sunflower oil
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a 12-cup muffin tray with paper cases.

2. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and ¼ tsp salt into a large bowl, then mix in the sugar and orange zest. Carefully fold in the raspberries and set aside.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients, then add these to the flour mixture, folding in to combine. Divide the batter between the muffin cases, filling each three-quarters full, then bake for 1520 minutes or until golden on top and springy to the touch.

4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tray for 5 minutes, then take the muffins out of the tray and place on a wire rack to cool down completely.
