Choc Chip Raisin Yoghurt Muffins

These choc chip muffins that I made recently were a hit at breakfast.  Not only were they easy to make, they were moist as I added more yoghurt than what was called for in the recipe.  This is a very simple and straightforward recipe that will yield consistent good result.

  • 9 oz plain flour
  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter or veg. oil (I used melted butter)

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 80 gm raisins

  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, mix till just combined.
  4. Scoop (I used an ice cream scoop) batter into paper lined muffin pan, about 3/4 full.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven @ 200 deg.C for 20 to 25 mins. till golden brown. Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  6. Leave muffins in pan to cool.  Serve warm.
  7. Yield :  12 Muffins

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!
