Many varieties of fruits have been incorporated into bakes including strawberries, bananas and even apples. However, an underrated fruit to me are grapes as with their sweetness and juiciness, they have great potential. Therefore, presenting to you my Grape Muffins!
My inspiration for these Grape Muffins also stem from the desire to do something different and more unheard of. Initially, I was skeptical as to whether the idea will work out especially if the grapes burst during the baking process. However, my patience was rewarded with delicious Grape Muffins!
As such, I am pretty much a convert for incorporating grapes in my bakes once again. The last I have done so was for a Grape Galette when I first started sharing about my bakes!
Now onto the flavour profile. In terms of flavour, these Grape Muffins are bursting with flavours; the sweetness of the red grapes complemented the vanilla muffin really well. Additionally, I topped these fluffy muffins with cream cheese and french grape fruit spread for extra tartness (this is an optional step). For those curious, I am using St Dalfour newly released French Grape fruit spread!
An important word here: please use seedless grapes for hassle-free eating.
I am also glad to share that this is a one-bowl recipe and its pretty fuss-free making these Grape Muffins!

These soft, fluffy, and fruit Grape Muffins are refreshingly different. Love how naturally sweet they are, and goes well with a vanilla base!
1/2 Cup or 125g Unsalted Butter, Melted
1/2 Cup + 2 Tbspns or 130g Granulated White Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon or 1.4g Table Salt
One Large Egg, 55g, at Room Temperature
1 Teaspoon or 5ml Vanilla Extract or 10ml of Vanilla Essence
1/2 Cup + 2 Tbspns or 150ml of Milk, Room Temp
Approx 1 Cup or 220g of Seedless Grapes, chopped into quarters or eighths
1 and 1/2 Cups + 2 Tbspns or 200g All Purpose/Plain Flour, Sifted
2 Teaspoons or 8g Baking Powder, Sifted
Softened Cream Cheese (to taste, I use it as a spread or you can make it as a frosting)
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C or 400F. Line your muffin tins with liners or butter them well.
Firstly, mix together the melted butter and sugar until well-incorporated.
Then, add in the egg, salt and vanilla and whisk until mixture is of a single consistency (wet ingredients).
Next, whisk in the milk.
In a separate bowl, mix together the sifted baking powder, sifted plain flour, and grapes.
Transfer all the dry ingredients and grapes into the wet ingredients and fold until the batter comes together with all dry ingredients well-incorporated,
Divide the batter into 10 to 12 equal portions.
Bake for about 16-20 minutes depending on how browned you like them to be. The toothpick should come out clean, apart from some grape juice!
Serve and enjoy!
Yield: 12 Fruity Grape Muffins!
