Passionfruit, Blueberry & Poppy Seed Muffins

   Passionfruit is a new favourite of mine, and since getting a jar of curd I've attempted to put it on most things. With night shifts looming this weekend, I decided to bake some muffins from Gizzi Erskine's new book.

Passionfruit, blueberry & poppy seed muffins
(From Skinny Weeks and Weekend Feasts) Makes 16 small muffins
     225g self raising flour
     50g oats
     75g caster sugar
     1tsp baking powder
     1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
     a pinch of sea salt
     2tbsp poppy seeds
     zest of 2 lemons
     200ml milk
     75ml lemon juice
     125g unsalted butter, melted
     1 egg
     250g passionfruit curd
     150g blueberries

  • Heat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • Mix flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, poppy seeds and lemon zest together in a large bowl.
  • In another bowl mix the milk and lemon juice, slowly adding the butter, egg and 100g of the curd.
  • Pour into the flour mix and combine well.
  • Gently stir in the blueberries.
  • Divide between the muffin cases.
  • Using a piping bag, pipe about 2 teaspoons of curd into the centre of each muffin.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden and the curd has sunk a little.
You can also use lemon, lime or orange curd.
