Fresh Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins

There are only a few weekends left with my soldier before he deploys, so I want to make each one special.  So, this morning I whipped up a batch of Fresh Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins for our family to enjoy.

Raspberries are my favorite fruit…. EVER.  White chocolate is my husbands favorite chocolate… EVER.  Put them together… a match made in muffin heaven!

I can’t take credit for this recipe though, it originally comes from Sally’s Baking Addiction.  If you haven’t read Sally’s blog… you totally need to.  She’s got some of the most beautiful food I’ve ever seen.  Sally’s recipe uses dark-chocolate chips and sanding sugar on top… Mine have white chocolate and sugar in the raw.  (Oh… and I totally forgot to add the vanilla to mine.  WHOOPS!)

Either way… you can’t lose with this recipe.  It makes the PERFECT muffin!

Enjoy!

Fresh Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 14-16 muffins
Ingredients
  • 3 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, gently packed
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 230g fresh raspberries (about 1 to 1½ cups)
  • Sugar in the Raw
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. GENEROUSLY spray entire muffin/cupcake pan (in the cups and on top) with non-stick spray. You could also use cupcake liners, but I'd suggest still spraying the top of the pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the sugars and whisk for about 2 minutes or until pale yellow, creamy and smooth.
  4. Add the milk, oil and vanilla and whisk until combined.
  5. Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry while slowly whisking. Whisk until all the flour is off the bottom of the bowl and no more pockets of flour remain.
  6. Add the chocolate chips and fresh raspberries and GENTLY FOLD them into the batter. Be careful not to break up the raspberries!
  7. Fill each hole in the muffin pan to the top with batter. Sprinkle the tops generously with Sugar in the Raw.
  8. Bake for 5 minutes at 425 F degrees. Reduce heat to 375 F degrees and bake an additional 12-14 minutes our until tops are golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool in pan for 10-15 minutes before removing to a wire rack. NOTE: I ran a knife along the edges of the muffins before removing to help ease them out of the pan.
  10. Eat immediately. Don' store them... just EAT THEM! YUM!

    Your muffins look scrumptious, Betsy! I love the white chocolate-raspberry combination, especially with fresh berries! A great muffin to make a weekend morning special. :) Wishing you wonderful weekends with your family before and after deployment!

    Ever since you posted these I have been dreaming of them! In my oven now. Was munching fresh raspberries together with the white chocolate chips while mixing. Cannot wait for the timer to go off.

    These muffins are as tasty as they look! Loved them, Betsy. A winning combo! One question for you Betsy, What is the best way to store muffins/cupcakes? I let them cool completely and stored in a Tupperware container, but without fail, the muffins got a little mushy, I am mindful to totally cool. Any advice, as the tops that were so scrupmptious became soft. Would welcome any thoughts. Helen

    These were as yummy as they look!
    Looking for storage advice, I totally cooled the muffins and stored in airtight container, but the next day the muffins were rather soggy, the yummy crisp tops were soft, any advice? Would welcome ideas. My thanks. Helen
