Raspberry and Chocolate Muffins - Saturday Blog Showcase

Please join Lori of All That Splatters and me in participating in this week's Saturday Blog Showcase.
This week I'm showcasing a recipe for Raspberry and Chocolate Muffins that I found on the blog Stone Soup.  The author of this blog is Jules Clancy.

These muffins, are very easy to make.  More like a cupcake in texture.  Made a great breakfast.

I made a couple of minor adjustments to accommodate what I had on hand.   Instead of dark chocolate  I used Callebaut Milk Chocolate and I subbed Creme Fraiche for the plain yogurt.  And to make them just a little bit more decadent they were finished off with a white chocolate glaze.

Although the recipe is suppose to make nine muffins  but I  filled a 12 cup muffin tin and still had enough leftover for three more.

Raspberry and Chocolate Muffins

250g (9oz) plain flour
1 1/2t baking powder
200g (7oz) caster sugar
200g (7oz) unsalted butter
3/4C natural yoghurt
1/2C water
2 eggs
100g (3 1/2oz) dark chocolate, roughly chopped
150g (5oz) raspberries, fresh or frozen
2T raw granulated sugar or demerrera

Preheat oven to 190C (375F). For fan forced oven reduce temperature by 20C or 40F. Line 9 holes of a large muffin tray with papers.

Combine flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl and make a well in the centre

Melt butter then remove from the heat. Stir through yoghurt and water and then add eggs, stirring well afterwards.

Pour butter mixture into the well in the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Don’t stress if there are a few flour lumps. Fold through raspberries and chocolate and spoon into prepared muffin papers. Sprinkle with raw sugar.

Bake for 30 – 45 minutes or until muffins are lightly golden and feel firm and spring back when you push them gently on the top. Allow to cool in the tray. Especially good while still warm and the chocolate is all molten but will keep for up to a week in the fridge.
