Sweet & Simple Muffin Recipe

In my opinion muffins are the ultimate baked good! Because they’re often a sweet, scrumptious, and delicious treat that is acceptable to eat for breakfast. I mean what is better than that!

So of course I’ve eaten my fair share of muffins in my life, but I have to say these raspberry and white chocolate chip ones truly take the cake. Or muffin. LOL.

These moist muffins are full of fresh, juicy, & tart raspberries and creamy, sweet white chocolate. When you bite into them and get a taste of the two combined – it is truly incredible!

Plus they’re simple, fluffy, easy to make, and freezer friendly too. They’re truly a must make!

Ingredients

This recipe calls for all your basic ingredients – flour, milk, sugar, etc. Plus the star ingredients that really make this muffin shine, rich white chocolate and juicy raspberries.

The combination is simply out of this world!

Ingredient Notes

  • Butter: The base of this recipe is 1/2 cup of unsalted butter. It provides that rich and delicious flavor we all know and love!
  • Sugars: These delicious muffins call for two sugars. You’ll need 1/3 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup light brown sugar. The combo makes for a perfectly sweet treat!
  • Eggs: Add 2 large eggs for moisture and binding.
  • Flour: All purpose flour is the flour of choice in these muffins. 2 cups is just right.
  • Milk: The liquid in these muffins is milk. Any milk of your choice! You’ll need 1 1/4 cup.
  • Vanilla Extract: 1 tsp vanilla extract gives these muffins that amazing classic flavor.
  • White Chocolate: Sweet white chocolate chips really takes this recipe to a whole new level. It is so dang delicious! 1/2 cup is all you need.
  • Raspberries: Fresh raspberries truly make these muffins burst with flavor. They also add such a nice moistness. Use 1 cup!
  • Baking Powder: 2 tsp of baking powder bake this treat to the perfect texture.
  • Salt: Lastly add a pinch, 1/4 tsp, of salt to balance all the sweet.

Substitutions & Additions

I always recommend being very careful with making ingredient swaps for baked goods because as we all know baking is a science! And with changes I can’t guarantee the same results.

But here are a few substitution and addition ideas I do have in order to make these muffins meet your personal preferences or needs.

Milk: You can use any milk you would like here! Almond milk, soy milk, whole milk, etc. Whatever you have on hand.

Berries: These muffins are of course filled with scrumptious raspberries, but any berry could be swapped in. Like blueberries, blackberries, or strawberries.

Chocolate: Same goes for the chocolate! If you’re not a white chocolate fan try dark chocolate or milk chocolate.

Nuts: You could add some nuts for a delicious crunch! Try walnuts or almond slices.

Expert Tips

Use room temperature ingredients for the best muffins – milk and eggs specifically!

Add the dry ingredients and wet ingredients to the muffin mixture in the order of flour-milk-flour-milk-flour! This allows for the ingredients to be evenly combined and ensures the liquid is thoroughly absorbed. This order also helps the gluten develop.

To disperse the raspberry flavor throughout the entire muffin, break the berries into smaller pieces.

Toss the raspberries with a bit of flour before mixing into the batter! This prevents the fruit from sinking and from making your muffins too soggy.

If your fresh berries are a bit sour you can also toss them with a bit of sugar before mixing into the batter.

Line your muffin pan with paper liners! This makes for easy muffin removal and clean up. It’s also an environmentally friendly option.

Use an ice cream scooper to get evenly sized muffins.
