ruby this is a lovely cake but don't be worried in the middle when adding the rasps/peaches/cheese etc - it looks like a dogs dinner but it turns out lovely smile

put eggs, milk, yogurt, oil and vanilla in bowl and whisk. add peaches and stir

in seperate bowl sift plain flour/ baking soda/salt and cinammon/wholemeal flour/sugar and mix

fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients but stop mixing as soon as it all comes together - should still look lumpy

divide between 12 muffin cases and sprinkle tops with a little brown sugar and put in oven for 20-25 minutes

leave to cool in tin for few minutes then transfer to rack
