Easter Breakfast and Recipe for Chocolate Raspberry Muffin

My Easter Table setting with the talented Margaret Young Whitford went so well.
A thunder storm was predicted so we dashed around setting up, took a few photo's and then opted for breakfast inside while the rain came lashing down.

Recipe for Chocolate And Raspberry Muffins
250g plain flour
1Tbs baking powder
125g caster sugar
250ml milk
60g butter
1 large egg
200g chopped belgian chocolate 
200g fresh or frozen raspberries
Preheat the oven 180c. Butter 12 muffin tins
Sift the flour and baking powder and stir in sugar.
Melt butter remove from heat and whisk in milk and egg.
Add to dry ingredients mixing lightly.
Fold in chocolate and raspberries.
Pop into muffin tins and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until firm and golden.
Cool 5 minutes in tins, then transfer to cooling rack.
Dust with icing sugar and enjoy in moderation!!!  


  1. Love the details of your Easter table and the muffins sound delish.
    We had a frightful storm last night. Thankfully it was during the evening. However, we are off to the country today to see if damage was done on our property. Unfortunately the magnificent old gums tend to drop enormous branches in storms like the one we had last night.
    Eater wishes.

  2. Beautiful setting Bee and Margaret!
    Wishing you both a wonderful Easter.
    Isn't this weather just glorious?

    I hope the Easter bunny leaves you lots of lovely eggs.
