Raspberry and Lemon Muffins

I was originally going to make cranberry and orange muffins but soon realised I didn’t buy the cranberries I thought I had and hubby had eaten all the oranges! So I had to switch up my plans and I decided on just raspberry muffins but as I opened the fridge some lemon curd caught my eye I decided to give it a whirl with rather delicious results!
