Raspberry & white chocolate muffins

IMG_1060

So the Kids needed something for afternoon tea, and I had the urge to bake. It had to be with what I had in my pantry because I really didn’t feel like going to the shops, I felt like muffins and in particular raspberry muffins, especially since I had frozen raspberries in the freezer. I searched around on the internet looking for recipes for raspberry muffins, and unfortunately every recipe asked for a least one ingredient I didn’t have ( don’t you hate it when that happens).

So I did a little bit of playing around with a basic recipe, added a little bit of this and took out a little bit of that and crossed my fingers that they would work.

And Ta Daaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!! I ended up with a beautiful batch of muffins, that the kids and  hubby eagerly devoured for afternoon tea :-).

    Hmm. Do you think these would work with Mango? They look really pretty but I don’t have any raspberries in and I have two mangos that need using.
