Elderberries are in abundance right now, try the bushes just off the car park at Portchester Castle or just inside Nelson Lane on Portsdown Hill.

Elderberry Linseed Muffins recipe. I use USA cups because it's easy to remember the 3 cups flour/2eggs/1 cup milk/3/4 cup honey /1cup berries combo. 3-2-1 flour/eggs/milk, see? :-)

1 cup wholewheat flour

2 cups white flour

A handful of ground linseed with sesame and blueberries from Aldi

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1/2 tsp salt

2 beaten eggs, large

4 tbsp sunflower oil

2/3 cup honey

1 cup whole milk

Zest of a small lemon

1 cup fresh de-stalked elderberries (I used a fork)

Method -
really easy actually. Put everything in a bowl except the elderberries, mix with a hand mixer and when it is all
incorporated well, stir in the elderberries. 
Put into muffin cases in a muffin tin.

It makes about 12.

Cook at 200 degrees for about 20 minutes. Check with a cocktail stick and if it comes out clean, they are done.

Lime icing is just lime juice and icing sugar.
