Cherry-Berry-Choco Muffins

I couldn’t imagine a better way to close the blogging year with these amazing muffins (or cupcakes, if you wish). I always use the same basic recipe, only changing the ‘extras’ like fruits, dried fruits, chocolate, spices, etc. Feel free to adjust the amounts! My all time favourite is the apple-cinnamon version, but this one received many compliments as well. Also, aren’t those colour combinations just wonderful?

Cherry-Berry-Choco Muffins


125g butter (or half cube RAMA margarine is what I use)
125g sugar
2 eggs
250g flour
1 pack baking powder
50ml milk

a fistful of dried red cranberries
half bar dark (or any) chocolate (I had 70% at home, but the cocoa taste is less intense if you use milk chocolate – leftover chocolate santa or rabbit from Easter are also perfect!)
half can sour cherries (remove the pits if any)

1. Mix the butter, sugar and eggs
2. Mix the flour and baking powder, add it to the egg batter and mix until smooth
3. Add the cherries, dried fruits and chocolate, mix it in (with a spoon or something, no need to use a hand mixer here anymore)
4. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C, prepare your muffin baking tray (I have a traditional one, with muffin papers)

5. Fill the holes with the batter and place the tray in the oven.

6. Bake them for around 30-35 minutes or until golden.
