Mixed Berry Chocolate Muffins

My poor guinea pigs Molly and Maru were very ill and work has been busy as usual because of the new 5 week 'The Smartest Giant in Town' animals story approach topic. My friend and I had to plan 5 weeks of lessons, design and produce the teaching aids, order the materials and have meetings with the teachers. It was hard work and had a few late nights too. But it was all worth it! If you're a teacher, I'm sure you will understand what I mean...

Mixed Berry Chocolate Muffins
(makes 12 muffins)
280g cake flour
60g cocoa powder
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
140g butter (softened)
220g sugar
2 eggs
300g wild berry yoghurt (or other berry flavours)
170g raspberries 
80g blueberries

Preparation: Grease the top of the muffin tray. Line the muffin tray with paper cases.
  1. Mix together the cake flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda. Sift the mixture and set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time. Combine well.
  4. Add the butter mixture and yoghurt into the flour mixture. Mix well.
  5. Using a spatula, gently fold in the blueberries and be careful not to pop them.
  6. Scoop mixture evenly between the paper cases. Top each muffin with 2-3 raspberries.
  7. Bake in a pre - heated oven at 190C for 20 - 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean in the center of a muffin.

If you are a berry lover then add more berries to this recipe! I used wild berry flavoured yoghurt instead of plain yoghurt because it gives more flavour to the muffins. You can choose any berry flavour flavour yoghurt as you please. I chose wild berry flavour because it was on sale at the supermarket.
