Berry and Chocolate Muffins

I’ve been doing a series of children's cookery workshops for Waitrose and so far, it’s been very enjoyable. Today I made muffins with my group of 5 – 8 year olds and they were all really fantastic though some maybe stayed in the oven a little too long. The muffins I mean, not the kids.

Makes 12
250g self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
150g dried berries and cherries
100g white chocolate, chopped
100g milk chocolate, chopped
100g golden caster sugar
2 eggs, beaten
150g carton natural yogurt
100g butter, melted

1 Preheat the oven to 200C / gas 6. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.

2 Tip the flour and bicarb into a large bowl then stir in the berries, chocolate and sugar. Add the beaten eggs, yogurt and butter and mix together – don’t worry if it’s a bit lumpy.

3 Divide the mixture between the paper cases and bake for 20 – 25 minutes until risen and golden brown. Cool a little before eating.

These sound yummy! Please tell me where are the Waitrose cookery lessons for little people? I would love to sign Max up.

Sadly not in London. I've heard that Munchkins do very good workshops but they're based in Blackheath so a bit far away
