Chocolate and Raspberry Muffins

November 15, 2012
To celebrate a team member's birthday at work we always have half an hour that day (or a day close to it) for tea & cakes. It's basically what it says on the tin- we drink tea and eat cakes! We are quite a keen team of bakers and so there are always some lovely treats on offer and for the most recent tea & cakes I decided to bake these chocolate and raspberry muffins. 

I knew that I wanted to bake something with raspberries in and after a quick google I decided on this recipe from another blog (with a few tweaks). It was so simple to make and they tasted absolutely divine- especially straight from the oven. The combination of the zingy raspberries goes so well with the chocolate. I included lots of chocolate chips and lots of raspberries but you can play around with the amounts if you want less, or more of either. Let me know if you try it or if you know any other great recipes with raspberries!

Ingredients for 12 muffins
6oz Plain Flour
1.5oz Cocoa Powder
2tsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
4oz Caster Sugar
4fl oz Vegetable Oil
1 Medium Egg
5fl oz Milk
150g Raspberries
75g Dark Chocolate cut into small chunks
75g Milk Chocolate cut into small chunks

Method

1) Pre-heat the oven to 180°c and place your muffin cases into a baking tray

2) Put all of the muffin ingredients except for the raspberries and dark/milk chocolate into a medium mixing bowl.  Stir until just about mixed together.

3) Add the raspberries and chocolate chunks and mix gently

4) Evenly distribute the muffin mixture between the 12 muffin cases.  Bake on the middle shelf in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
