Raspberry, Almond & White Chocolate Muffins

Raspberry, Almond and White Chocolate Muffins, cake, mother's day, fruity muffins, nutritious, easy, quick

It probably hasn’t escaped your notice that it will be Mother’s Day on Sunday 15th March so I thought I would make some muffins that children could bake for or with their mums. When I think of mums I think of pink so the raspberries that were sitting in my freezer came to mind. Then there was the abundance of ground and flaked almonds left over from Christmas which I thought would go perfectly and finally white chocolate to contrast the tartness of the raspberries!

My husband doesn’t eat berries! My daughter when she heard I’d baked said “great, it doesn’t have fruit in it though”? But who wolfed down 2 muffins in the same day, yep, they did as well as myself and my son! I’ve never had ground almonds in a muffin before but they give a lovely hint of marzipan flavour and as everyone who knows me will tell you, I’m a huge marzipan fan. My experiment with using half ground almonds instead of flour has inspired me to explore other cake ideas so watch this space!

As these Raspberry, Almond and White Chocolate Muffins used up a glut of ingredients that were in danger of going out of date I’m entering them into No Waste Food Challenge over at Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary.

  4. Janette@culinaryginger

    I’d one of these right now with my morning tea, they look delicious.

  5. Alison Johnson

    These do look very tasty & would make a good change from the traditional plain choc chip muffins I end up making every Saturday. Not sure I would put the flaked almonds on the top as my son would pick at them & complain. The almonds inside he’d never know about!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Alison;-) You could always just decorate half with almonds, I often taylor food here to different tastes eg blackberries at one end of an apple crumble:=_

  6. Karen Herbert

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Laura:-)

  29. kellie@foodtoglow

    I think of pink too, although my Mother’s day recipe involves parsnips – LOL! These look fantastic but I don’t think I could make and share them. Unless it was two batches, of course. I might drop a hint to my daughter…

    1. Camilla

      Thanks:-) Ah but I’ve already thought of this Kellie – the recipe makes 18 so enough to hand out and keep (or freeze)!

  30. Jacqueline Meldrum

    I saw the first photo and thought Mmmmmm, then I saw the cut into one and I was gone. Just gorgeous!

    1. Camilla

      LOL, thanks Jacqueline, I always want to see inside cakes as that’s where the yumminess shows:-)

  31. Lucy - BakingQueen74

    These look so fruity and light, I wish my children would make me a batch!

    1. Camilla

      Aah, thanks Lucy:-)

  32. Iris

    These look so tempting – I might bake a batch and then send my mum the recipe, that’s the only way to share them with a sea between us 😛 Mother Day isn’t until May in Italy, but any excuse to spread the love for muffins is good, right?

    1. Camilla

      Good thinking Iris:-)

  33. PeterDelicious

    I love these types of recipes – clear outs! I just made a yogurt pot cake with cornmeal that was just hanging around, and I prefer it to the non-cornmeal version.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Peter, it’s so cathartic too:-)

  34. Nayna Kanabar (@SIMPLYF00D)

    Raspberry and white chocolate is a match made in heaven, They look delectable.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Nayna:-)

  35. Michelle @ Greedy Gourmet

    Yikes, I didn’t even know mother’s day was around the corner. This would be great to be served in bed on the special day. I wish!

    1. Camilla

      Wouldn’t it just but I’ll settle for some toast happily:-)

  36. Jeanne Horak-Druiff

    Oh I do love the combo of white chocolate and raspberries! Such a lovely summery recipe to go with today’s mild weather 🙂

    1. Camilla

      It’s a combo I’ve wanted to make before but fell short of one of the ingredients so got there in the end:-)

  37. Margot @ Coffee & Vanilla

    And thank you for sharing my smurfy muffins, too 🙂

  38. Margot @ Coffee & Vanilla

    Oh, how delicious! Nothing better than healthy, fruity muffins to go with coffee in the morning 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Exactly Margot, any cake with fruit in has to be healthy doesn’t it:-)!

  39. Karen

    Hi, these look lovely but the instructions mention oil but oil is not one of the ingredients listed. Is there oil in these
    & if so, how much? Thanks!

    1. Camilla

      Shall ammend immediately, thanks for letting me know!
