white chocolate & ginger muffins



Back to breakfast. I swear, I get an idea in my head & turn obsessed.... sorry.

In all honesty I'm not that much of a breakfast person but we're trying to incorporate muffins into the menu at work & now I can't seem to stop looking at recipes.



There will be more.... just saying. I promise to try & keep them funky though. Todays are deliciously yummy white chocolate & ginger muffins. The trick with these ones is you put a layer of streusel in the middle & it gets all gooey & moist. Oh yea, I said moist.


Ingredients, streusel: makes 14 - 120g (1/2 cup) brown sugar - 80g (1/2 cup) gluten free white flour - 20g (1 tbs) fresh grated ginger - 1/8 tsp salt - 65g (1/4 cup) butter, cold & cubed - 180g (1 cup) white chocolate drops


Directions, streusel: 1. combine all the ingredients in a blender & pulsate until it resembles a corse sand. 2. gently mix in the white chocolate. set the mixture aside.


Ingredients, batter: - 480g (3 cups) gluten free white flour - 1 1/2 tsp baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda - 1 1/2 tsp salt - 20g (1 tbs) fresh grated ginger - 190g (3/4 cup) butter, room temp - 300g (1/3 cup) sugar - 3 eggs - 1 tsp vanilla - 375g (1 1/2 cup) sour cream


Directions, batter: 1. cream the butter & sugar together until light & fluffy. 2. add in the eggs one at a time & beat together until fully incorporated. 3. beat in the ginger & vanilla. 4. mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. 5. fold the ingredients into the butter & sugar mixture, starting & ending with the flour: flour // sour cream // flour // sour cream // flour // finish 6. spoon a 1/4 cup of batter into each lined muffin tin. 7. sprinkle half the streusel mixture on top of the batter, then spoon in 2 tbs (30ml) of batter into each muffin tin on top of the streusel. Finally, sprinkle the remaining streusel on top of each of the muffins. 8. bake for 20-25 minutes @ 175ºC until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out dry. Allow to cool before serving.
