We usually stick to chocolatey muffins, because the kids like them. But, I recently made blueberry muffins for the first time. They were incredible. So soft and moist. The blueberries were wonderful. This made me want to try something a little different. I love the combination of Raspberries and White chocolate, I’ve already used it in brownies and cookies this year. So, I figured Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins couldn’t fail.
They didn’t. They still don’t really rise too much, but that’s, as usual, my fault for not heating the oven enough and opening it too many times throughout the cooking process. Don’t do this, and yours will be even better than mine.
When you make Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins (or any other kind of muffin!) it’s really important that you don’t over mix. Use a fork to lightly mix the wet ingredients into the dry, stopping as soon as there are no lumps. Then when you add the fruit and chocolate, again just lightly mix until they are evenly spread. Mix too much as they won’t work properly.
These Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins are soft, juicy and absolutely gorgeous. The flavours just work so well together in a soft muffiny case. I’m honestly not sure if I prefer these or blueberry. So, I’m going to keep making and eating them just to be sure. Then, I’m going to make some that are filled with lemon curd. And maybe then Strawberry and white chocolate. Perhaps something with a brownie?! I’m basically going to make all of the muffins!
