Blueberry & White Chocolate Muffins

Good Evening,

Tonight's recipe is one I cut out of a local newspaper recently and was keen to try.  The recipe is by one of the chefs from the renowned Three Chimneys Restaurant on the Isle of Skye and uses blaeberries (also known as bilberries) which grow wild around the countryside.  Here I've used some of our own blueberries from the garden which are a very close relation.

Blueberry & White Chocolate Muffins

Makes 12

10oz self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
6oz caster sugar
200ml milk
1 large egg
3oz melted butter
3oz white chocolate, chopped, plus 1oz
200g blueberries

Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and white chocolate in a large pan.  Beat the egg and milk together, add slightly cooled melted butter.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the liquid ingredients.  Mix very lightly for about 30 seconds.  Do not over-mix.

Half fill muffin cases then place 5 or 6 blueberries in each then add more mixture to 3/4 fill the cases.  Add a few more blueberries and some of the remaining white chocolate to each.

Bake at 200C/190C fan assisted for approx 25 mins.  Sprinkle with vanilla sugar or icing sugar as I have done here.

  1. Good Evening Shona, what a great idea to have a cooking blog, well done you.
    Have looked through your recipes and they all look yummy, now I know where to look when I'm stumped for what to cook. Love the look of your cakes and the English Onion Soup, hugs Kate x
