During the summer holidays, we’ve been baking. This is our favourite recipe of the summer: raspberry and white chocolate muffins.
• 300g plain flour
• 1 tbs baking powder
• 100g caster sugar
• 100g butter
• 2 eggs
• 200ml milk (we use 1% fat)
• 150g raspberries
• 100g white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C (gas mark 6).
Sieve flour and baking powder into a bowl. Stir in the sugar, chocolate and about half the raspberries (save a couple to decorate each muffin), and make a well in the centre.
Melt the butter.
Whisk the eggs and milk together.
Pour the liquid onto the dry ingredients and stir – don’t overmix.
Spoon the mixture into 12 muffin cases and add the extra raspberries on top.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, cool on a rack – and enjoy!
