Strawberries and cream, white chocolate muffins!

Strawberries and cream, white chocolate muffins :: keep it simple

These are quite naughty but very nice!! I had some cream that had just gone out of date and needed using up and some strawberries that needed using, I thought white chocolate would work well, which it did! My Great Auntie was visiting this weekend so I took some to my Mum and Dad’s yesterday where she was staying. They were well received!

Ingredients:

250g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g sugar
6 tbsp oil
125ml cooled stewed strawberries (I used about 350g strawberries, quartered and simmered for about 20 minutes, lid off)
250ml double cream
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
100g white chocolate
50g white chocolate chunks
pinch salt

Preheat oven to gas 4/180°C and line a 12 hole muffin tin with paper cases. Sieve the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl. Add the sugar. Place the 100g white chocolate, broken in chunks, into a pan with the oil (I used the pan I’d stewed strawberries in) and heat on a very low heat, stirring often, until chocolate has melted. Beat the eggs and vanilla into the cream with a fork. Then pour into the flour, along with the melted chocolate and oil. Use a spatula to fold together until combined, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl until combined. Divide between cases, filling them 3/4 full. Sprinkle some chocolate chunks on top then bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top and skewer comes out clean. I got 15 out of this mix so needed to do a second batch in oven as I only have one tray!

  1. These look delicious, I would love to try the recipe. How does stewed strawberries taste? does it taste good? thanks for sharing! Have a wonderful week!

    1. I really like them stewed! If you reduce them down it intensifies the flavour. Lovely with ice cream!

      Thanks! You too! 🙂
