Crafty Fridays: Cherry and White Chocolate Muffins

I do bake some mighty fine muffins, if I do say so myself! My favourite ones to bake are these cherry and white chocolate muffins. They are my signature muffins. If I'm stuck for a last minute gift idea, or need to take a plate of food to a get together, these muffins never fail to disappoint.


As soon as I get them out of the oven, I'm stuffing my face with two or three- they are by far the best muffins I have ever tasted. I love that they are so simple and fast to make, and yet taste sensational.



 Ingredients:
- 425g can stoneless black cherries, drained
- 75g unsalted butter, chopped
- 240g white eating chocolate
- 3/4 cup caster sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups self raising flour
- icing sugar, to decorate


Method:
Melt butter in saucepan. Add half the chocolate with sugar. Stir over low heat until smooth. Remove. Whisk in milk, egg, vanilla and flour until just combined. Fold in cherries and remaining chocolate and cook in a moderate oven for 20 minutes. Dust with icing sugar.

These look yummy, although I'm not a fan of white chocolate. I guess milk chocolate would work too?

Thanks Alanna! Yes, please drop by, I'm hanging to meet you!! Are you planning a trip anytime soon? Or will I have to think about trying to come up your way? x

Hey Dorothy! Yes, milk chocolate would work just as well. I recently made some blueberry muffins with milk chocolate following this same recipe and they were amazing. Thank you for stopping by :-)

Awards. Proof that I'm awesome.
