Macadamia & White Chocolate Muffins

IMG_5295

I have a basic muffin recipe and then I just add whatever flavors I have in my cupboard.

INGREDIENTS
2 cups flour
2/3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts (save a tablespoon to sprinkle on top)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips + 1/4 cup for melting
1 egg
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup melted butter, cooled

DIRECTIONS
Melt butter and put aside. In a large bowl sift together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In a separate bowl, stir together the egg, milk, vanilla, citrus juices, and melted butter until well combined.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon or rubber spatula until just combined. The batter will be lumpy. Do not over-mix or the muffins will become tough. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with muffin liners or spray with nonstick spray.

Divide the batter evenly between the 12 muffin cups using small ice cream scoop.

Bake at 425 F for about 10 minutes, lower oven to 350 and bake for additional 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs.

Melt the 1/4 cup of white chocolate in a double boiler or microwave and then drizzle on top of muffins.  Sprinkle with reserved macadamia nuts.
