Ingredients

  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 75 g white chocolate - chopped
  • 150 g golden caster sugar (I used vanilla sugar and omitted the extract)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g wholemeal flour
  • 80 g plain flour
  • 20 g coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 70 g Greek yoghurt mixed with 50ml water
  • 24 raspberries

White Chocolate Raspberry Cream

  • 100 ml double cream
  • 25 g white chocolate - chopped
  • 100 g raspberries
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar

Instructions

  • Melt the butter and chocolate together in a large pan over a gentle heat.
  • Stir in the sugar, then beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Sift in the dry ingredients, then stir in the yoghurt.
  • Spoon roughly half of the batter into 12 cupcake cases. Place 2 raspberries in each case then spoon over the rest of the batter. Bake at 180℃ (350℉, Gas 4) for 22 mins, then leave on a rack to cool.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cream

  • Meanwhile, heat the cream to boiling point and pour over the chocolate. Stir until smooth then leave to cool.
  • Blend the raspberries with the icing sugar then sieve to remove the seeds.
  • Whisk the cream until stiff, then fold in half of the raspberry puree. Spoon this over the cupcakes, then drizzle with the remaining puree.

Notes

You can easily omit the coconut flour and replace it with either wholemeal, plain or a mixture of both.
