Light and fluffy muffin recipe. So good you would not even know it is vegan.

  • 1 1/4 Teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 240 gram Raspberries - Frozen or Fresh depending on the season

This recipe came about because one day I made my little girl a Coconut Cake. My two little monsters take it in turn picking a new recipe every week or so. The Coconut cake was laden with sour cream, coconut, eggs and butter and looked absolutely delectable. I was actually so annoyed that she was going to be able to have this cake that I wanted to do one better. (Bad Mummy moment). So as soon as the coconut creation was in the oven and girl child was out of the kitchen, I went and grabbed a recipe for Raspberry Muffins. There you go, 44 years old and on a mission to outdo my 8 year old daughter. I am not going to apologise for being jealous of a coconut cake though, because the muffins were amazing. Not a vegan brick in sight. They were light and fluffy and absolutely scrumptious. Another one for the bible of indulgence.

  • I didn’t have a muffin tin so I made this in a brownie tin. It was delicious. Thank you for sharing.


  • These look incredible! I wonder if they will still come out fluffy if you use almond flour…


  • These muffins look amazing


  • These look lovely. Interesting using vinegar.

    • Love the notes – it’s great to find vegan recipes that don’t have a terrible texture


  • I’m looking to change my diet and add more vegan items, hopefully to go vegan one day in the future. So this is one I’ll be adding to a vegan list, yum!


  • Thanks for the recipe. They look great.


  • These vegan raspberry muffins, amazing & simply delicious.


  • These sound great with fresh fruit


  • Delicious vegan muffins and raspberry muffins are the best muffins!


  • I would leave the sugar out, use a different flour and make my own apple puree, but for the rest some lovely ingredients !


  • Delicious!


  • Wow these look great!! Thanks for sharing.


  • Is it vegan because there are no eggs in them? What’s the consistency like? I’m intrigued!

    • Vegan because no animal products – so no eggs, milk, butter. The consistency is amazingly light. Talk me a while to perfect this recipe – but it is heavenly.


  • I love rasberries in my desserts and muffins are so easy,thanks!

    • I love raspberries in most things – any excuse!

      • I love raspberries in recipes too – they add colour and taste.


  • i have never been game to use water in baking. your muffins turned out really good so obviously this is not a problem.

    • These make for a lovely light muffin. The water works a treat. Give it a try – I find that the kids love them too (well my little boy does, my little girl has taken against fruit in cakes so she needs some convincing!)
