This moist, fluffy, sweetish-sourish delight is packed so full of chocolate discs, I think the cake batter is really not that much in each muffin at all! 🙂

The recipe is adapted from Perfect Puree. I once bought some puree from them and did try out some of their recipes with very good results.

Raspberry chocolate muffin  (adapted from Perfect Puree)

  • 375 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 310 grams caster sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 227 grams unsalted butter, melted
  • 450 grams raspberry puree *
  • 2 cups chocolate chips/discs (I used dark chocolate)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare liners for muffins. I made 19 muffins from this recipe.
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder into a large bowl. Set aside.
  3. Beat eggs with sugar and vanilla extract until light in color and creamy in texture.
  4. Slowly drizzle in butter and beat for a minute until incorporated.
  5. Drizzle in raspberry puree and beat until incorporated.
  6. Pour raspberry egg mixture into sifted dry ingredients and mix until combined. Final texture will be slightly lumpy but thick.
  7. Pour in chocolate chips/discs and mix.
  8. Spoon into prepared liners and bake for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick stuck in the center of the muffin comes out clean.

* My raspberry puree is made from 500 grams of frozen raspberry, thawed to room temperature, blended with 2 tsp of lemon juice and 3 tbsp of caster sugar.

I love the light pinkish color of the muffin! And you can see from the picture I wasn’t kidding about the amount of chocolate per muffin. A wonderful treat for anytime of the day.
