Now that summer is here, I am loving all of the berries that have started to pop up! And there is no better time than now to whip up a batch of these delicious white chocolate and berry muffins. They are so good that even the fussiest eater will love them!
As with any good muffin recipe, they are soft and moist on the inside, but have a lovely crunch to the outside. Feel free to mix and match the berries for any you like or have lying around… raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and blackberries would all work a treat. Or you could always do a batch of white chocolate and mixed berry muffins, so then you don’t have to choose!
If you can’t eat the whole batch, then just wrap them tightly in glad wrap, place in a sealable sandwich bag and pop in the freezer for another day. They are definitely best eaten warm and fresh out of the oven, but there is nothing wrong with heating up one out of the freezer and having it for dessert with a dollop of custard or cream!
Thanks to a lovely lady named Bec, who ran a cooking class I went to earlier in the year for this yummy recipe!
