Sweet dreams with red currant muffins

This morning I walked over our farmers market. It’s just around the corner. Not a big one at all, but still the fruits and vegetables they have, are just picture like. Soooo many colors. Today I’ve been into red, that’s maybe the reason why I bought some red currants.

Normally they are to sour for me and I have to add a lot of sugar to make them my favorite. But still I like them. In a nice magazin named „sweet dreams“ I found a pretty easy recipe to turn these little “ I have to make funny grimaces while eating them“, into tasty muffins. The light and fluffy texture of the sponge dough and the balance between the sour and sweet of the berries are awesome.

If you’re also a grimace maker, try this recipe and you’re gonna make a happy face while eating them. The original recipe worked with 180g red currants, but I increased it to 250g, because I like them a little bit more juicy.  It’s really a sweet dream:-)
