Sweet and Delicious Strawberry, White Chocolate and Lemon Muffins

Strawberries are steadily coming down in price, which is great because I love berries. My first steps were made toward my mother, who was holding out a strawberry to entice me. It worked!

Muffins are a great way to whip up a sweet treat. There’s no need to cream your butter and sugar – simply combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. But be careful not to overmix the batter – you don’t want a tough muffin!

While the strawberries are a healthy choice, the addition of white chocolate makes these muffins a little bit naughty – but oh so sweet and delicious. The lemon zest also lifts and lightens the flavours.

Strawberry, White Chocolate & Lemon Muffins Recipe

  • 2 cups Self Raising Flour
  • 1 cup Caster Sugar
  • 120 grams of White Chocolate, chopped into large and small pieces
  • 1/2 punnet fresh Strawberries, chopped into small pieces
  • Grated peel of 1 Lemon
  • 80 grams of Butter, melted
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk

4 steps to make the recipe:

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C or 340 degrees F. Line a muffin tray with muffin cases. I found this recipe made around 15 large muffins.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, chocolate, strawberries and lemon zest.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the butter, eggs and milk together. Pour into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
  4. Spoon the batter into the muffin cases. Place in the oven and bake for around 18-20 mins.
