Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins

I broke with my usual weekend tradition today and whipped up some mid week baked goods. Had to be a wee bit creative with the choice too, as I only remembered at 3.30 this afternoon that it's teddy bear's picnic day at daycare/preschool tomorrow. If I'd realised sooner, I would have picked up some specific ingredients at the shops this morning and almost certainly not have made something with quite so much sugar in it. But what the hey, I'll cut them in half and only take along a small plate... and I'm sure they'll go down a treat with the teachers anyway!

Working with the bits and pieces I had in the cupboard, I managed to pull together a recipe for Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins. They turned out beautifully. Another of the things I love about technology. The fact I'm able to jump on my trusty laptop, go straight to google, punch in a few key ingredients and presto! A range of varied recipes at my fingertips. These yummies came from the That's Life page of the Yahoo 7 site and they were super simple to make. 

Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins

2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
50g butter, melted
1 cup frozen raspberries, thawed
180g white chocolate, roughly chopped

Preheat oven to 190 degrees (160 fan forced) 
Place 12 large patty cases into muffin pan
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and sugar
In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk and butter
Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients along with the raspberries and chocolate
Using a large spoon, mix until just combined
Distribute the batter between patty cases and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean and muffins are golden


  1. They look delicious.
    You have white chocolate lying around? That you haven't succumbed to?
    You are a stronger woman than I.
