Muffins for every season – red currant for summer, cherries and chocolate for winter

I think that the most wonderful time for baking fresh muffins is summer – you walk in your garden and pick what is ripe – currants, gooseberries, apples, raspberries and you bake. But it is also great to make some warm and sweet muffins during the cold winter, cherry and chocolate ones being my favourite. The main recipe is the very similar and easy to make.

For the Red currant and vanilla muffins you need:

2 eggs
1,5 dl sugar
2,5 dl wheat flour
1 ts baking powder
1/2 vanilla pod
150 gr thick sour cream
50 gr unsalted butter, melted
200-300 gr of red currants
Whip the eggs with sugar, scrape in the seeds of the vanilla pod. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add sour cream, melted butter and dry ingredients. Mix until even. Mix in the currants carefully. Divide the batter to the muffin pan and bake in preheated oven with 225 degrees for 15 minutes.

Punase sõstra-vanilli muffineid:
2 muna
1.5 dl suhkrut
2.5 dl nisujahu
1 tl küpsetuspulbrit
½ vanillikauna
150 g paksemat hapukoort
50 g ehk 0.5 dl sulatatud võid
200-300 g punaseid sõstraid (lisasin ka veidi musti sõstraid)

Vahusta munad suhkruga kohevaks, kraabi sisse ka seemned vanillikaunast. Sega kuivained omavahel. Sega munavahu hulka vaheldumisi hapukoor, jahtunud sulavõi ja kuivained. Viimasena lisa sõstrad. Jaota tainas muffinivormidesse. Küpseta 225kraadises ahjus umbes 15 minutit.

For the Cherry-dark chocolate muffins you need:

2 eggs
1,5 dl sugar
3 dl wheat flour
2 ts baking powder
Pintch of salt
75 gr chopped dark chocolate
100-130 gr frozen cherries
2 tbs brown sugar
0,75 dl rapeseed oil

Mix the frozen cherries with brown sugar and put aside. Whip the eggs with sugar. Mix together dry ingredients, chopped chocolate, halfmelted cherries and at last the oil. Quickly mix the batter until even and divide into muffin pan (fill appr 2/3 of every muffin hole). Bake in preheated oven under 200 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

Kirsi-tumeda šokolaadi muffinid:
2 muna
1.5 dl suhkrut
3 dl nisujahu
2 tl küpsetuspulbrit
noaotsatäis soola
75 g hakitud tumedat šokolaadi
100-130 gr külmutatud kirsse
2 spl fariinsuhkrut
0.75 dl rapsiõli

Sega kirsid fariinsuhkruga ja pane sulama. Vahusta munad suhkruga. Lisa omavahel segatud kuivained, hakitud šokolaad, poolsulanud kirsid ja õli. Sega tainas kiiresti ühtlaseks ja jaota ettevalmistatud muffinivormidesse (täida vormid umbes 2/3 ulatuses). Küpseta 200-kraadises ahjus umbes 20-25 minutit.
