Lemon and White Chocolate Muffins

IMG_0229

A couple of years ago, on one of our caravan holidays in Sligo, I treated myself daily to a coffee and a lemon muffin (to be fair, it was only a three day holiday) All the time, wondering how I’d be able to keep up this new found habit when we got home. I made a few attempts to recreate them at home and although they are not the same, I love them just as much. In fact I’d go as far as to say they are definitely my favourite muffins.

I purposely don’t make them very often. Especially now that I’m slowly getting back on track with Slimming World (might have something to do with a coffee and muffin habit…)

The recipe is pretty simple, and uses the homemade Lemon Curd that I posted on Wednesday. I recently discovered Moser Roth white Madagascan Vanilla chocolate in Aldi  which is delicious and perfect for use in this recipe. Definitely not slimming world friendly though…

 

INGREDIENTS

200g unsalted butter

200g caster sugar

4 eggs

200g self raising flour

1tsp lemon essence

125g white chocolate, roughly chopped

jar homemade lemon curd

METHOD

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together.

Add the eggs, one at a time, followed by a spoonful of flour (this helps to prevent curdling) and gently mix together.

Add the lemon essence and the remaining flour and fold into the mixture.

Carefully stir in the white chocolate pieces.

Line a bun tray with cases. Spoon some mixture into the cases, pop a teaspoon of lemon curd in the centre then cover with more muffin mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Allow to cool before eating, lemon curd gets quite hot 😉

    I’m one of those odd people who prefers white chocolate to normal chocolate so these are right up my alley! X

    Wow they sound delicious. I have never tried lemon and white chocolate together but I like the sound of it. Lemon is one of my favourite flavours in cake! Afraid to make them incase they are too good and I won’t stop eating them!
