Yogurt muffins and red fruit compote

We have breakfast together?
I hear this question asked more and more often and more and more often I accept it with enthusiasm. But I have a skeleton in the closetI never arrive fast at the pastry shop or the bar, I've already made the real breakfast at home and I limit myself to a coffee and a mini wholemeal croissant.
The photograph of my ideal breakfast sees me in my pajamas, with wrinkled eyes, the marks of the pillow on my face (which now disappear after a couple of hours and no longer after five minutes), the silence around me or at most a few groans to make me pass the honey or biscuits. This, in all its normality, is my perfect breakfast.

And for a slightly richer breakfast I prepared these muffins with yogurt and red fruit compote borrowing the jar method, although here they are not the classic seven.
A rather light dough, with a little oil, to prepare seven rather large cakes to be served with a freshly warm red fruit compote, together with a cup of tea and a yogurt, this combo was my breakfast last Sunday. One muffin for me, two for the husband and by Monday they were already gone!
