Mixed Berries White Chocolate Muffins

Mixed Berries White Chocolate Muffins

I made these with my little one. She loves helping out in the kitchen and muffins are prefect to make with kids. They get to do a lot of mixing and nothing much can go wrong really. Just make sure they don't overmix.

I used the basic muffin recipe from "The Cook's Companion" by Stephanie Alexander which is my favourite recipe. I added frozen mixed berries (blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries) and white chocolate chips. One tip with using frozen berries is not to defrost them before using because they tend to "bleed". The muffins were lovely, moist and most importantly, the kids loved them!

Makes 12 muffins


1 1/2 cups (220 gr) self raising flour
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 cups castor sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 tsp vanilla essence

  • Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) and place muffin papers in muffin tins or grease muffin tins well with butter.
  • Mix flour, sugar and white chocolate chips.
  • Combine milk, egg, oil and vanilla essence in a separate bowl and whisk lightly.
  • Make a well in centre of dry ingredients, pour in liquid and mix lightly.
  • Add the berries and lightly mix.
  • Spoon batter equally into muffin tins, about 2/3 full.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
Try to use muffin cases as the berries tend to stick the tin.

    Mel, your site is really dangerous place to come with hungry stomach who has sweet tooth! I'm drooling all over your site at 11pm. My stomach growls while I see your muffin pictures. This one which I didn't see before has white chocolate. Very unique. I have 2 bags of white chocolates from baking before (hopefully exp date is okay). I want to try making this. Looks so good!!

    Thank you Nami! You should try this. Muffin is good to make when you are hungry as it is quick to make and most of the time you would have all the ingredients in your pantry :).
