Blueberry and White Chocolate Muffins

First of all I would like to apologise for my lack of blogging lately but I’ve been unwell with the flu and only now am I starting to feel better, these colds just linger on for weeks! It feels like ages since I did any baking or blogging, so I decided to get my act together and baked these simple blueberry and white chocolate muffins. I know my boys have missed my baking and these muffins will be a welcome treat.

Blueberry and White Chocolate Muffins

Makes 6

150g plain flour mixed with 50g golden caster sugar, ½ tsp baking powder and a pinch of salt
1 egg, beaten
50g butter, melted and cooled
100ml milk
75g blueberries
75g white chocolate, chopped into chunks

Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6 and line a 6-hole muffin tin with paper cases. Mix the egg, melted butter and milk quickly into the dry ingredients with the blueberries and chocolate (don't over mix; it should be a bit lumpy). Divide between the cases and bake for 25 minutes until risen and golden and cooked through.

If can’t decide between chocolate chip and fruit-filled muffins? You don't have to - these little beauties are packed with both.

I am pleased to hear you're feeling much better Maria and back baking and blogging!! Your muffins look delish and I know your boys will have missed your baking.

It also feels like ages since I last baked or blogged due to illness, as they say onward and upward :)

These are fantastic, thank you! Just had one (ok, gulped one down) with afternoon coffee.

The batter is like more chocolatey than floury :)
