White Chocolate and Blackberry Muffins

I had some blackberries left over from the weekend after making a blackberry and apple crumble for Sunday’s pudding. So today I was searching online and found this recipe for White Chocolate and Blackberry Muffins. This is a very quick and easy muffin recipe and produces a light moist sponge, with chunks of sweet, creamy white chocolate and tangy blackberries. These decadent muffins are great for breakfast or an afternoon treat with your cuppa!

White Chocolate and Blackberry Muffins

Serves 12

2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup caster sugar
125g white choc bits
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
100g butter, melted
150g punnet blackberries

Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan oven/350°F/Gas mark 4. Line a muffin pan with paper cases. Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add sugar and choc bits. Stir until well combined.
Whisk eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and butter together in a separate bowl.
Using a large metal spoon, stir butter mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Gently swirl through berries.
Spoon mixture into muffin holes. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand in pan for 5 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack. Serve.

Notes & tips
These muffins are best eaten warm or within 2 days of baking.

Yummy! Blackberries are one of my very favorite things to eat; we planted a nice blackberry bush last summer, and it looks like it survived the winter, so I'll have to keep this recipe in mind. They look delish Maria!
