So what do you do on a cold Saturday morning? You make delish Raspberry and white chocolate muffins of course! And let me tell you ladies and gents, this combo is fantastic! Did I mention that I had a ton of leftover frozen raspberries and a boatload of white chocolate that I had to get rid of? It would be tragedy to let them all go to waste.
A moist muffin with tart raspberries and rich white chocolate chunks. A golden top and a cake like center and with one bite that melts in your mouth. I am a huge fan of right when they come out of the oven. It just doesn't get any better than that!
After seeing a recipe similar to this one in one of my old Good Housekeeping magazines from way back in the day, I adapted it to make it my own and was super glad I didn't waste any of my raspberries. That is such a sad day in this house when fruit goes to waste!
This recipe can be made all without an electric mixer, just some good old fashioned arm strength to mix up the batter!
- All-purpose flour
- Lemon juice
- Granulated sugar
- Vegetable oil
- White chocolate
Step by step instructions
These muffins take no time at all and can be whipped up within about 15 minutes!
1. Preheat oven and prepare muffin tin: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a standard muffin tin with non stick spray. Set aside.
2. Make batter: Whisk wet ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add in the white chocolate chunks and raspberries. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until combined.
3. Pour batter into tins and bake: Pour batter into muffin tins about ½ to ⅔ full. Bake for 20 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Let it cool for a few minutes and serve!
Variations and substitutions
- Buttermilk can be substituted for milk to help with the moistness of the muffin
- Any chocolate flavor will work and compliment the flavor of the tart raspberries
- Use fresh or frozen raspberries
- Try with strawberries, blueberries or even fresh cherries
Tips and tricks
- Using vegetable or canola oil instead of butter makes the muffins super moist. It gives them that soft and cake like center.
- DO NOT over mix the batter. This can lead to a very dry and rubbery muffin.
- Don't bake for more than 20 minutes at a time.
How do I these store muffins?
Muffins are pretty easy to store. Line an airtight container with paper towel. Line muffins on top of the paper towel and then layer another paper towel on top. This will allow the muffins to become less soggy. Store for up to 4 days at room temperature.
Freezing muffins is pretty easy. Just put in an airtight freezer bag and pop in freezer. Be sure to heat in the microwave for 30-40 seconds to reheat the center.
Make sure the prepared muffin tin is filled to the top and bake in a very hot oven for the first five minutes to ensure the muffins rise quickly.
