Brunch with friends: Raspberry & white chocolate muffins

Fat Mum Slim /

Back in High School I met my best friend. It was behind the hall and it was 1993. Physically she was everything I wasn’t, tiny and petite and beautiful. I was tall, frumpy and was wearing the platform shoes that were so very popular back then. We hit it off.

In an ideal world, I’d love to live near each other so our kids could grow together and we could share dinner-cooking duties for our kids and meet at parks to play. The truth is there is a whole state between us, somehow after all these years geography has kept us apart. Our lives have mirrored each others paths. We fell in love at the same time, married around the same time and then had kids at the same time too.

Over Christmas we spent a morning together. The kids played. We hung out. It was like old times, except we’ve aged and have two little people each running around distracting us. Who would have thought that those two high school kids would grow up to be mamas? Eh?

These muffins were on the menu that morning. I also made them on Christmas morning. I don’t know what makes them so good {perhaps it’s the cream?} but they’re definitely worth trying.




3 cups of self-raising flour
1 cup caster sugar
250g white chocolate chips
125g butter, melted
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup cream
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
200g frozen raspberries


♥ Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius. Line a muffin tray with 12 liners.
♥ Place flour sugar and white chocolate in a bowl. Add the better, egg, milk, cream and vanilla. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
♥ Add in the raspberries. Gently mix. You don’t want to over mix all you’ll turn the mix a pinky/grey colour.
♥ Bake for 25 minutes.

Do you have a best friend? Or a group of good friends? Where did you meet?
