Muffins can sometimes be complicated, but these ones are so easy that kids can make them without any help. I have tried a few different combinations, and my top picks so far are Raspberry & White Chocolate, followed by Blueberry, Lemon & White Chocolate.
Stay tuned for other variations to come, including different flours, fruits and reducing the sugar content. I also love nuts, so will no doubt be adding these to the recipe.
Easy Berry Muffins
2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup white choc chips
1 cup frozen or fresh raspberries or blueberries
zest and juice of 1 lemon if using blueberries
Preheat oven to 180degC. Lightly grease a 24 mini-muffin tray.
Mix flour and sugar in a medium sized bowl, make a well in the centre.
In a separate bowl, whisk milk, oil, vanilla and eggs. Pour into well of flour/sugar and mix gently with a wooden spoon.
Add choc chips, berries and lemon zest/juice (if using). Gently mix together.
Spoon into mini-muffin tin (larger muffin trays can be used but the mini-muffin is the perfect size for a lunch box treat, or great with a cup of tea).
Bake for 12 minutes or until ready when tested with a skewer. Makes 24.
