Raspberry and White Chocolate Muffins

Proclaimed delicious! Another great recipe from Donna Hay.

I have one issue with the recipe though ~ I think the name is misleading.
I think of these as little cakes rather than muffins;
very decadent, indeed.  Too rich for breakfast or mid-morning
snack (in my humble opinion.) 

And without a doubt I would file this in the dessert category!

There is no butter involved, if that is important to you. The fat 
in the recipe come from sour cream and vegetable oil.

The recipe suggests using frozen raspberries, but I had
fresh on hand, so naturally that's what I used. Probably
the raspberries would have held their shape better with
frozen,  but I kind of like the smeary effect of the berries. :)

No matter, the combination of the tart berries and
sweet white chocolate is sublime! The recipe makes
6 large "muffins" (cakes) ~ so it is ideal for
smaller families.

  1. These are some beautiful and elegant muffins...or little cakes. :) I love the red color smeared around too. I think my kids would LOVE these for after school desserts.

  2. Your muffins are very pretty, love the papers! Always nice to find recipes that only make six:@)

  3. Muffins or cakes, whatever, they look delicious.

  4. Mary..perfect perfect perfect!Superb.

  5. OOOOH, It is just after 5:00 AM and I'm sitting here waiting for my first coffee, and thinking how perfect one of your muffins would be right about now. ~Ann

  6. Mari, your cakes/muffins look scrumptious!

  7. Oh Mari, The presentation is just absolutely gorgeous and after reading the recipe, wellllllll what can I say, I MUST make these soon. OMG, do they sound yummy. Thank you so much for sharing.


  8. Aren't those Donna Hay magazines gorgeous?! I can't seem to toss them out.

  9. Hello Mari! So nice to see you posting again! These muffins have my name written all over them - I'm crazy for raspberries and of course with white chocolate ....... just amazing sounding!

  10. Hi Mari....the muffins look wonderful especially those papers you baked them looks like you took parchment paper and folded it to fit the muffin tin...Where did you find these papers...Would be great for my ham and asiago popovers..

  11. I love your presentation and how you've used the liner. Is it parchment paper folded? It's really a striking presentation and would make any guest feel special if presented as a dessert.

  12. Thank you for your very kind comments! You ladies made my week. :)

    Regarding the liners ~ I bought mine about 2 years ago from an outfit in southern California (sorry, I've forgoten the name and info on the place).) But I just did a google search and I see that they are available on the King Arthur Flour site now:

    They also come in dark brown and red. Hope this helps!

    Have a wonderful day, and thank you again for your sweet comments~ m.


Thank you for your comments, friends ~ they make my day!
