Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins

Recently I've absolutely fallen in love with raspberries and I'm obsessed with them. Raspberry and white chocolate together is also probably one of the best combinations, the juiciness of the raspberries combined with the melting white chocolate in a tasty muffin is just amazing. Give these a try and you won't be disappointed! 


Recipe (Makes about 14-16 small muffins)


  • 300 grams plain flour
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • 150 grams golden caster sugar
  • egg
  • teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 225 ml milk
  • 50 grams butter
  • 100 grams raspberries 
  • 100 grams white chocolate 

Firstly, preheat the oven to about 160°C. Cut the raspberries in half and chop the chocolate into pieces, not too small as you want to be able to taste the chocolate chunks when you bite in. 


Then add the flour, caster sugar and baking powder into a bowl and stir. 


Melt the butter.

In another bowl, crack the egg and whisk in the vanilla extract, milk and melted butter.


Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture and add the liquid mixture. Stir until combined.



Add the raspberries and white chocolate, stir gently as the raspberries are delicate.


Spoon into cases and bake for about 15-20 minutes, until they are firm and a metal skewer comes out clean.







Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Life is never too hectic for baking

Life is never too hectic for baking, but unfortunately my life has been far too hectic for blogging in the 8-9 months I've neglected my poor blog! I absolutely loved updating my blog last year and it's such a shame I have been so rubbish recently - not only for my readers,  but for myself! It's a great way of accessing my tried & tested recipes. The amount of times I've thought 'what was that amazing muffin recipe I used?' or 'I wonder how I made those cookies?'... and because I haven't documented them on my blog or written the recipe anywhere, I will never know! 
Hopefully this is a new start for my blog now, where I will start to document my recipes once again. Life is still pretty hectic for me at the moment, with only 2 months left of my degree and a part time job as well as trying to write my dissertation. But I'm determined not to give up on my hobby! 

Don't worry though, I have still been baking when I have the time. Here are a few of my bakes in the last few months, and it hopefully won't be long until I have a new recipe to share :)
