Strawberry and Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Its that glorious time of year when fruit is plentiful, sweet and cheap! So what to do with all this fresh fruit? Bake!! These muffins are amazing! I found the recipe here and then doubled it LOL! 

Happy Baking!

What you will need
150g Golden Caster Sugar
1 egg
1tsp Vanilla extract
50g Melted Butter 
225ml Milk
300g Plain flour
2tsp Baking powder
100g fresh strawberries or raspberries 
40g White Chocolate
40g Dark Chocolate

I love the consistancy of cake batter
How to make them
Preheat oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6
Mix together the egg, sugar and vanilla extract
Add melted butter and milk, then carefully fold in the flour and baking powder
Add the berries and chopped chocolate then spoon the mixture into muffin trays
Bake in the oven for 30mins

Nearly done!
Makes 12

I used self raising flour (and no extra baking powder) and they turned out just fine!
Don't worry about the lumps when you fold in the flour, they disappear as you continue to whisk but be careful not to overwork the mixture!
I'm sure nuts will work just as well as chocolate
Set your timer to 25 minutes and check your muffins by placing a skewer through the middle.  If it comes out clean then your muffins are done!

Baking is a secret pleasure of mine, so I hope you've enjoyed this recipe

Gooey goodness!

Love xx
