Chocolate cherry muffins

G made these for her snack this week (I love muffins because they keep so much better than cakes and I was hoping that the chocolate may appeal to Miss I but she rejected them as they had dried cherries in them - oh well!)

  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 140g dried sour cherries
  • 100g bar white chocolate , cut into chunks
  • 100g bar dark chocolate , cut into chunks
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 150ml pot natural yoghurt
  • 100g butter 

  1. Heat oven to (fan) 180C and put paper cases into a muffin tin
  2. Sift the flour, and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl. Then stir in the cherries, chocolate and sugar. 
  3. Melt the butter (we did it in the microwave)
  4. Add the beaten eggs, yoghurt and then the butter and stir to combine. Apparently it doesn't matter if the mixture looks a bit lumpy, it's more important not to over mix or the muffins will turn out tough.
  5. Fill the paper cases and bake for 20-25 mins until risen and golden brown. Transfer to a rack to cool.
