    • 1tsp ground cinnamon
    • 155g (5½ oz) firmly packed soft brown sugar
    • 250ml (9 fl oz) buttermilk
    • 125ml (4 fl oz) low-fat natural yogurt
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 2tbsp vegetable oil
    • 440g (15oz) chopped mixed berries (Bill likes strawberries and raspberries)


    • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F, gas mark 4). Line a 12-hole, 125ml (4 fl oz) capacity muffin tin with paper cases.

    • Sift the two flours and cinnamon together into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and then make a well in the centre. Pour the buttermilk, yogurt, eggs and oil into a large bowl and whisk with a fork until just combined.

    • Pour into the well in the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined. Add the berries and stir until just combined (do not over-mix or your muffins will be tough).

    • Spoon into the muffin tin and bake for 20 mins, or until golden.
