Berry nice muffins

I came across this recipe for berry muffins on the back of a box of Weet-Bix this week. It interested me because it seems like a back-to-front recipe for muffins; the wet mix is added to the dry mix, instead of the other way around. I modified it (of course), using half the amount of berries and adding white chocolate chips which, I figured, would be balanced out by using Weet-Bix and wholemeal flour. I also didn't see the point in sifting wholemeal flour; the best bits are left behind in the sieve, so I just threw it all in. The final product was smaller than I expected, and quite heavy ... but oh so delicious with coffee.

Berry nice muffins

  • 1 cup white flour
  • ¼ cup wholemeal flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 6 Weet-Bix, finely crushed
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  1. Pre-heat oven to 190°C.
  2. Combine flours, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. Stir through sugar, crushed Weet-Bix, berries and white chocolate chips.
  4. Combine egg, milk and butter.
  5. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring gently until just combined.
  6. Spoon mixture into lightly greased muffin tins.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes. Makes 12.
