💭 Expert Tips
- Make sure to measure your baking ingredients accurately to achieve the best results. Check out my helpful guide on how to measure basic ingredients.
- Using paper muffin cases instead of greasing the muffin tray: The fruit and chocolate can stick to the edges making them difficult to remove.
- Baking the muffins at 220ºC (428ºF) for the first 5 minutes: This allows them to rise faster, creating a taller muffin.
- Melt the butter first: This allows time for it to cool down slightly while you gather and measure out your remaining ingredients.
- Bring the cold ingredients to room temperature first: Sit them on your kitchen counter for 30 minutes before making the recipe.
- Add the chocolate chips to the flour mixture first: This is better than folding them through at the end, which can cause you to over-mix the batter.
- Do not over-mix the batter: This will make your muffins dense and dry instead of soft and moist.
⏲️ Storage Instructions
Store cooled muffins in a sealed airtight container, at room temperature, for 3-4 days. Storing them in the fridge will dry them out.
Freeze muffins by allowing them to cool first. Then wrap each in plastic wrap or place them in an airtight container or zip-lock bags. Label with the date and freeze for up to 3 months.
Thaw muffins at room temperature for several hours until defrosted or overnight in the fridge. Reheat in the oven, microwave or in an air-fryer until warmed through and enjoy.
💬 Recipe FAQ’s
You certainly can! I’d recommend roughly chopping a measurement of 180g white chocolate block into small chunks, leaving some larger chunks if desired.
Yes! You can use either fresh or frozen. I used fresh as they’re in season and frozen when they’re not in season. If you choose to use frozen raspberries, you don’t have to thaw them before adding them to the batter.
I recommended using muffin liners as the raspberry and white chocolate can poke out after baking causing them to stick to the sides slightly. By using liners, you can effortlessly remove the muffins from the pan.
