Crumble top muffins are an ideal alternative dessert, packed with flavour and crunch. 

Our rhubarb and raspberry crumble muffins are delicious and soft, made with rhubarb yogurt and fresh raspberries. While summer raspberries are bigger and juicer, making these perfect for a summer snack, autumn raspberries are smaller and surprisingly sweet. So whatever the time of year you're making these, be sure to use fresh fruit for the best flavour. For an additional edge and extra hit of sugar, add some homemade caramel or maple syrup. Trust us, both of these rhubarb crumble cakes make for an unexpectedly amazing flavour combination.


  • 360g plain flour
  • 370g caster sugar
  • 1tsp salt
  • 1 ½tsp baking powder
  • ½tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 380g rhubarb bio live yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • 70g unsalted butter, melted
  • 250g raspberries


  • 75g plain flour
  • 65g unsalted butter
  • 50g caster sugar




  1. Pre-heat the oven to 170°C/325°F/Gas 3 and line a 12-hole muffin tray with paper cases.
  2. Begin by making the crumble, add all ingredient to a bowl or food mixer and rub in the fat until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, place to one side.
  3. To make the muffins place the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl (ideally use a food mixer), mix ingredients together.
  4. Add the yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract to the flour mixture and beat until smooth. Add the melted butter and whisk well to incorporate and ensure the batter is smooth and even. Finally fold in the raspberries gently to disperse.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the cases filling them almost to the top, generously sprinkle the muffins with the crumble mixture.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the muffins are golden brown and bounce back when pressed. Leave to cool in the tin slightly before removing onto a cooling rack.

Top tips for making crumble top muffins:

To keep your muffins moist, be sure to stick to the cooking time. Overcooking your muffins can make them dry and unpleasant while undercooking will leave some of the mixture wet in the tin and you'll struggle to get them out.
