  • 125 g unsalted butter
  • 125 g of molasses sugar
  • 2 large eggs (I used duck eggs)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (I used homemade)
  • 250 g flour (half wholemeal, half white)
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda.
  • 250 ml mixture of crème fraîche and low fat Greek yogurt.
  • 100 g white chocolate - chopped
  • a little icing sugar for dusting (optional)


  • Cream butter with sugar until pale and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs, one by one.
  • Add vanilla extract and beat some more.
  • Sift in dry ingredients and mix in alternately with crème fraîche and yogurt.
  • Stir in 100g chopped white chocolate.
  • Spoon into 15 muffin cases.
  • Bake at 180℃ for 20 minutes.
  • Place onto a rack to cool, then dust with icing sugar if desired.


Can use all crème fraîche or all yogurt instead of a mixture of both.
