Bumbleberry and white chocolate Muffins

Ever heard of Bumbleberry before??? nah? Me neither… well, until recently that is!

Bumbleberry is the “new” name given to mixed berries – normally at least 3 berry types and can also sometimes even include apple and/or rhubarb (or so wiki says)

Last week – I had an urge to get baking… and blame this urge on the fact that I am trying very hard not to pick up a further gram before the wedding (and the fitting of the wedding dress)… I can’t really lose weight either – as the dress will not fit then (or at least this is my excuse)… but sure as BOB – as soon as you think about eating clean… the dancing footsteps of cupcakes and muffins (and let’s not forget brownies) come prancing across my brain.

Thankfully – HIM and the office are happy recipients of this baking urge 🙂

The recipe is adapted from the BBC Good Food Magazine (December 2011 issue) – as I used half the amount of chocolate as they stipulated (and I used white instead of dark)… plus I used the mixed berries in place of the Morello cherries… but the rest… well – the basics were there!
