Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffin

This is Ainsley Harriott from Ainsley's Gourmet Express's recipe. I could not get my mind of this great tasting and smelling muffin after watching his program .. heh. I was very determined to get fresh raspberry and I was surprised that I could it get it easily at Cold Storage, United Square ... hehehe So with all the ingredients in hand, the result 8-D

Hi catherine,

You can use the pie filling to replace the fresh raspberry. Don't need to minus liquid out. Just scoop a bit of the pie filling into the muffin batter after you have scoop them into the muffin cases, use a toothpick to swirl it.

Hi Zu,

Should one be lactose intolerant, would replacing the milk with soya bean be suitable? Will the taste change in anyway? Please advise thanks.

Hi charms,

You can replace it with soya based milk but I believe there would be some slight diff in taste. But adding more raspberries & choc may be able to cover it.
