 There is still time to enjoy the huge amount of in season British fruit and my favourite is blackberries. this summer I have been using them in everything and they are a joy to bake with. These very fresh tasting cupcakes (or are they muffins?) are so simple to make and very easy to enjoy. They are also lovely as a lunch box treat!
