White Chocolate Muffins With Strawberries

Happy new year!

A new year, a new beginning - full of hopes and dreams.

I wish all my readers all the very best for 2010 and hope you have a tremendous year.

To start the year on the right foot, I thought it would be best to pamper the sweet tooth a bit (more). So heres a recipe which, for me, is a mixture of the year gone by and the new fresh year - the decadent taste of white chocolate together with fresh strawberries.





Ingredients

150 gram - white chocolate
2 tbsp - honey
3 1/4 tbsp - sunflower oil
100 gram - whole wheat flour
40 gram - oat flakes
9 tbsp - low fat milk
5 tbsp - low fat yogurt
1/2 tsp - bicarbonate of soda

Filling

1/3 cup - chopped strawberries
1/2 tsp heaped - vanilla sugar
Cook strawberries and vanilla sugar in a pan for 2- 3 minutes (the strawberries should just be soft)



Icing

a little castor sugar mixed witha little warm water
to decorate - a little chocolate confetti


Method  

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree C and line a muffin tray with 8 paper cases.
  2. Melt the white chocolate on a double boiler, stirring the chocolate continously.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the flour, oat flakes and bicarbonate of soda.
  4. In another bowl, mix together the milk, yogurt, honey and oil.
  5. Add the melted white chocolate to the flour mixture and rub till the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  6. Make a well in the centre of the flour meal and tip in the liquid mixture. Bring everything together with a wooden spatula.
  7. Spoon a little mixture into the paper case, add stawberries and then again pour a little batter over it.
  8. Place the tray in the centre of the preheated oven and bake for abt 21-23 minutes. Cool in the tray for about 2 minutes.Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Spread the icing on top of each muffin and then sprinkle chocolate curls.
 Makes 8 muffins






Have a great weekend!
