mmmmm, mondays: white chocolate, raspberry muffins

at this point, you can pretty much host a fantastic brunch with all of the breakfast recipes we've had lately. here is one of my newest favorites. i'm a sucker for raspberries and i will take white chocolate over dark chocolate any day of the week. these muffins don't fall into the "healthy" category...but they are pretty delicious. make them for a special occasion and enjoy a few yourself. you can get on the treadmill tomorrow.


white chocolate, raspberry muffins

3/4 cup butter, melted

1 1/2 cup sugar

3 eggs

3 cups milk

3 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 tablespoons baking powder

6 cups flour

2 bags of white chocolate chips

3 cups fresh raspberries (washed and patted dry)


preheat the oven to 400 degrees. spray three-12 count muffin pans with non-stick spray (i use canola oil spray and my pans from surlatable.)


using and electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until it is smooth. add the eggs, milk and vanilla and blend on a low speed. add the baking powder and chocolate and mix on low speed until incorporated. add white chocolate chips and blend on low to combine. pour in raspberries and fold in using a spoon or spatula. fill each muffin tin 3/4 full. dust lightly with sugar. bake 20 minutes or until an inserted knife is clean. enjoy! makes 3 dozen muffins (cut recipe unless you are feeding the masses!)
