  1. Stir 2 tbsp boiling water into the coffee. Set aside for a few mins. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Cut out 12 x 10cm squares of baking parchment. Melt the butter, use a little to brush the insides of a deep 12-hole muffin tin, and leave the rest to cool slightly. Line the tin with the paper squares, so they stick up a bit. (Or use paper cases.) Toast half the pine nuts. Strain and mix the coffee with the milk.

  2. Mix the flour, toasted pine nuts, sugar and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl. In another bowl, beat the eggs, then mix in the buttermilk, cooled butter and coffee. Stir this into the flour mixture until almost combined – it will need only a few stirs and the mix will feel light and airy. Tip in the raspberries, give a few more stirs to finish the mixing, but don’t overbeat or the mix will toughen. Spoon the mix into the muffin tins – they will be very full.

  3. Scatter the rest of the pine nuts on top, and bake for about 25 mins until risen and golden. Let them cool in the tin a few minutes, then move to a cooling rack. Eat within 2 days.

I've just made these and they smelled delicious whilst baking. Easy to do but did use flaked tasted almonds instead of pine nuts and couldn't really taste the coffee although I did use instant. Will definitely be making these again!

I think I need some more coffee in these ones because couldn't taste it! I will probably use instant coffee instead... but recipe is great!!! I will try another batch and bring it for my colleagues... They are real scavengers by the way! :)

if you find you need to take out a mortgage for the pine nuts, pistas or pistachios would be lovely!!

Firstly, good grief how much are Pine Nuts £4.00 for a 150g bag. Had to buy them as couldn't use my brain to buy anything else nutty! Aside from that not really for the sweet toothed person. However, in saying that you feel more healthier and on the 3rd day they tend to become a bit softer and sweeter anyway. I made them with Blueberry & Raspberries.

These were great, an excellent texture and the coffee wasn't a distinct taste, just gave a good depth of flavour.

Best muffins of all I've tried on bbcgoodfood. Everything was perfect - taste, texture, shape, and even colour. 6 stars! Though I didn't have pine nuts and substituted them with caramelized sunflower seeds. Will definately try again with pine nuts, and, I guess, with other fruits and berries as well. One more thing - I didn't bother myself with baking parchment, just greased the muffin tin with butter.

Forget to mention that pine nuts make great combination with raspberries.
