Whenever we entertain guests, I always try to ensure that there is enough food for everyone at all times. I am sure many other hosts are like that – I know a lot of bloggers are since I always see such a vast array of good foods set out before everyone during their meetups! haha.
I made these dark chocolate and raspberry muffins last weekend in case our family friends arrived early for the BBQ dinner. Good thing I did too, because they arrived VERY EARLY! haha. We had other snacks and everything too, but what hurt can a little bit of cake do, right? hehe.
These were so. GOOD! Everyone loved it. The dark chocolate chunks are bittersweet, which paired beautifully with the tart raspberries which helped cut through the sweetness. JC’s girlfriend’s Mum couldn’t stop gushing about it =D haha.
Here’s the recipe! I recommend you try this one day =)
(Bourke St Bakery cookbook, with slight modifications)
400g all-purpose flour
2tsp baking powder
300g caster sugar
310g unsalted butter
225g dark chocolate
55g raw sugar, for dusting
The method is the same as the mixed berry muffins I made.
