Ingredients

  • 1 medium avocado peeled, deseeded
  • ½ cup cashew nuts
  • 120 ml water a little less than half a cup
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 170 g self-raising flour approx. 1 cup and a quarter
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 3.5 heaped tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil I used rapeseed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Demerara sugar for sprinkling on top

Instructions

  • Combine the cashews with the water and leave to soak overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 F/ 200 C/ gas mark 6. Line a muffin pan with 8 muffin cases. Set aside.
  • Combine the flour with the baking powder and stir thoroughly.
  • Puree the cashews (as well as the water) with the avocado and lime juice.
  • In a large bowl beat the egg, sugar and oil until smooth and a little lighter in colour. Add the vanilla extract, lime zest and the avocado mixture. Stir thoroughly.
  • Add the raspberries and flour mixture and stir only until the flour is no longer visible. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases, sprinkle each muffin with a little demerara sugar and bake for 36 minutes. Remove from the pan and place on a cooling rack. Yields 8 large muffins.

Notes

Preparation time does not include time needed to soak the cashews.
