Muffins are always such a no brainer when it comes to baking. Stir, scoop and bake.

They bake up quickly and are ever so perfect fresh, fluffy and warm from the oven. Blueberry muffins are great, but White Chocolate Raspberry Muffins are the muffins for when you are feeling like something really wild.

I am always happy to sit down with a warm muffin; strawberry crumble, banana coconut, pumpkin, blueberry–I don’t really think there is a muffin I would ever turn down. What about you?

These White Chocolate Raspberry Muffins are:

  • Just the right sweet and tart. White chocolate is super sweet so the tart raspberries round it all out. One bite with a bit of both is the real deal.
  • Fluffy and moist. A MUST for muffins in my book. Making sure the ingredients are room temperature, your baking powder is fresh and not over-mixing will make for those perfect muffin tops everyone loves.
  • Easy to whip up: 10 minutes to stir it all together and baked in just under 20 minutes. You will be all set in 30.
  • They are freezer friendly. Freeze for up to 3 months in a freezer safe, air-tight container. Mine never make it that long though, and I bet yours won’t either.

Ingredients:

  • raspberries: You can use fresh or frozen raspberries. Fresh break up a bit more easily so the bonus of using frozen is that they hold together. Frozen raspberries will sometimes stain the batter pink–fair warning!
  • milk: Whole milk is what I prefer. If you want to make these raspberry and white chocolate muffins with another milk, or a dairy free milk, you should be ok!
  • egg: two large eggs, room temperature
  • butter: unsalted, melted and then cooled
  • vanilla: extract for best results
  • baking powder: Make sure they it’s fresh so the muffins rise.
  • flour: all purpose flour, fluffed with a spoon, spooned into the measuring cup and leveled with a knife if not using a scale
  • salt: I opt for sea salt but table salt will work as well
  • white chocolate chips: I love a high quality white chocolate in these muffins. If you want a dairy free white chocolate chips, that will work as well!

How to make the best white chocolate raspberry muffins:

Whisk the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder together and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk the, egg, butter, vanilla and milk to incorporate.

Mix the dry ingredients in with the wet and stir just until combined. Don’t over stir.

Gently fold in the raspberries and white chocolate chips so as not to break the berries up too much. They will naturally break apart some, so don’t worry. You I actually prefer the berries to be broken up a bit. Especially if the raspberries are giant.

Line a muffin pan with liners and spritz the top with spray oil just to be safe. When I over fill the muffin cups, I always get muffin stuck to the pan. Scoop the white chocolate raspberry muffin batter into the cups evenly to fill twelve muffins. Sprinkle with coarse sugar if desired.

If you add extra white chocolate chips on top, they may burn slightly. Some do and others don’t and I haven’t figured out why!

Bake for about 19-22 minutes at 375°F or until a toothpick comes up clean. Cool for several minutes before diving in!

Notes and Tips:

  • If your raspberries are a tad sour, toss them in about a teaspoon or two of sugar and let them sit for a few minutes before adding them into the batter.
  • Raspberries have been hard to find lately–obviously when they are in season is the best time to get them, unless you go the frozen route. You technically could opt for blackberries or even blueberries in these muffins instead.
  • When measuring your flour, stir it up to aerate it before measuring it. Then spoon it into the measuring cup and then level with a knife.
  • Room temperature ingredients make for the best, fluffiest muffins. If you want your muffins to have plenty of rise and fluffiness, then room temperature ingredients are a must. Allow the milk and eggs to sit out to come to temperature. When heating the butter, allow it to cool as well.

Recipe Variations:

  • You can switch up the berry if desired. Blueberries, blackberries or even strawberries will work well. A mixed berry and white chocolate muffin sounds amazing!
  • No white chocolate chips? Use dark, milk or a mixture of both!
  • Add the zest of a lemon to the batter for a fun twist.
