This recipe was from Ravinder Bhogal's 'Cook in Boots'. Here recipe was for white chocolate and blueberry - I figured it would be the same if I did white chocolate & mixed berry.
The recipe starts off by making the crumble mixture - combine 50g plain flour, 65g caster sugar, 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon and 25g unsalted butter; simply rub till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Warning - Don't be like me and forget to add the crumble mixture to the batter once it's spooned into the cases!
The muffin batter - Sift 450g plain flour and 2 1/2 tsp baking powder into a bowl and then stir in 175g caster sugar and 1/2 tsp sea salt. Add zest of 1/2 lemon, 200g chopped white chocolate, then pour in 50ml melted unsalted butter, 350ml milk and 1 beaten large egg. Mix till combined and don't forget to add the berries.
In a preheated oven at 190 degrees, the muffins will take about 25 minutes to cook.
Recipe makes 16 fat muffins.I was quite intrigued by this recipe and how it turned out. It probably wasn't the best muffin I'd made and to be honest, I was surprised that this muffin didn't turn out sweeter. The last recipe I used by Miss Bhogal was very sweet and in a way, I was expecting this recipe to lean towards being overly sweet but good. The quantities also produce a very strange number of muffins (16 fat ones - and I'm quoting the recipe here) and well, that's a lot of muffins to eat when it's just me and my mum who eat them at home. On the plus side, I'd say this was a healthier muffin compared to the ones I usually make and well, I do love baking muffins!
