  1. Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and put 8 muffin cases in a muffin tray. Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl, add the melted butter, soured cream, eggs and lemon zest and beat just long enough to give a thick, smooth mixture – don’t over-beat. Carefully stir in the fruit and finally the sparkling water, until just evenly combined.

  2. Divide the mixture between the muffin cases – they should be nice and full. Sprinkle generously with the sugar and bake for 25-30 mins or until risen and golden. The muffins are best served just warm. Will keep fresh in an airtight container in a cool place for 1-2 days.

This was easy and delicious, nice light muffins, used a couple of steamed plums instead of peach.

Easy to follow, straight forward recipe. I made them with my 4yr old little boy. We just used a mixture of fresh Raspberries & Blueberries because that's what we had in and wanted to use up some sour cream. They turned out lovely and fluffy and not too sweet, we'll use this recipe again.

As I spooned mixture into cases I wondered why it was so dry... I forgot to add the sparkling water! However would you believe they were still ok to eat, not my best work but promising enough that I'll try again with all ingredients next time! Maybe 2 nectarines (I don't do peaches) is too many as I ended up with 15 muffins- however my 1yo & 6yo both enjoyed them despite high fruit content & below par texture. Easy to make & good way to use up leftover sour cream or fruit that's nearly past it.

Oh! Can I ask you to check the nutrition facts for these muffins. From what I understand, you are telling us that each muffin is equivalent to around 60 grammes of peanuts ... that's EACH muffin! Alternatively, can you define what is meant by a serving?

These are excellent muffins. I had all ingredients except the flour so I used plain flour with two teaspoons of baking powder. Given some comments here that said their muffins were stodgy ... I used only one and a half peaches and chose hard rather than soft ones. Other than that, this recipe worked really well for me and I got 15 muffins!

I lovd these and so did my fiancé (they taste a lot like the Starbuck's skinny peach and raspberry muffins, yum)!

Liked these very much. I made half quantity in normal bun cases and got 10 muffins and I used creme fraiche instead of sour cream. My only problem was that my mixture was rather dry when it came to adding the fruit (I used peaches and frozen mixed forest fruits) so the fruit smashed up a bit, juices ran, making the mixture an interesting grey/lilac colour :-( Taste was great but the cooked muffins looked like they had gone mouldy! Hence the four stars.

I had never made muffins before, but these looked really delicious and also quick to make. I used 175 gr of blueberries, no peaches. I made 9 not 8 and they were very large, but I think muffins should be a bit OTT. I wanted to eat one straight from the oven and it was really, really good, if a bit hot! Shared one over coffee next morning - they are big, & it was still yummy- even cold!

These were lovely and light!! I didnt have any sparkling water at the time so i used tonic water which seemed to give the same light fluffy effect! I also used cranberries and apricots and they were just as fruity. This def makes more that 8 i had at least 12 muffins with these measurements! I would make again.

These are definitely my go-to muffins. Blueberry & peach is great but have uses other fruit too. I would like to make some mini muffins for a toddler & mums group. Anybody made these as mini muffins?
