Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins (that kids can cook!)

This recipe is so easy the younger kids (7 & 5) can do pretty much all of it without my help now. These Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins taste divine and a great sweet treat to whip up when you need something in a hurry as they are quick to make.

The ingredients for this recipe are the type that you usually always have on hand. If we don’t have frozen raspberries, I will often just make plain white choc chip muffins which are still very delicious!

Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • ¾ cup caster sugar (you can get away with only using 1/2 cup sugar)
  • ¾ cup milk
  • ½ cup canola oil (I no longer like to use canola oil so use 1/2 cup melted butter, which is approx 125 grams butter.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup white choc chips
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Place patty pans in muffin trays.

Cooking time depends on the size and oven, but 12 -15 minutes is about average for the standard patty pan size. Edit: Muffins will be ready if you push a skewer into the middle of the muffin and it comes out clean. This recipe made 12 large and 12 small muffins.
