As the second polar vortex settled over the states, it was darn cold outside…and a bit drafty inside! The wind was howling and the snow was dancing through the air…a perfect time to turn on the oven and bake up some Raspberry White Chocolate Muffins.

The enticing aroma brought Bill into the kitchen…and he immediately asked for a sample. He gave these his hearty endorsement, and asked if they were fair game for breakfast….which they were. The buttermilk adds a lovely tenderness and the plump raspberries brought a touch of tartness which was balanced by the sweet white chocolate. I prefer using discs (mine were Guittard) or chunks over chips for a bigger dose of white chocolate in each bite.

The #TwelveLoaves theme for this month is chocolate!!! We were good all January with our Keep it Simple theme, now it’s time to get a little decadent. February #TwelveLoaves is all about Chocolate! Choose a recipe featuring chocolate. (It could be a bread accented with chocolate chips, baked with cocoa powder, chocolate spreads, whatever you love!). Whatever you bake (yeasted, quick bread, crackers, muffins, grissini, braids, flatbreads, etc) have fun and let’s have a delicious month of bread with chocolate. Let’s get baking!

If you’d like to add your bread to the collection with the Linky Tool this month, here’s what you need to do!

1. When you post your Twelve Loaves bread on your blog, make sure that you mention the Twelve Loaves challenge in your blog post; this helps us to get more members as well as share everyone’s posts. Please make sure that your bread is inspired by the theme!

2. Please link your post to the linky tool at the bottom of my blog. It must be a bread baked to the Twelve Loaves theme.

3. Have your Twelve Loaves bread that you baked this February, 2014, and posted on your blog by February 28, 2014.

#TwelveLoaves is a monthly bread baking party created by Lora from Cake Duchess. #TwelveLoaves runs so smoothly thanks to the help of the lovely Renee from Magnolia Days.

Check out all the marvelous chocolate treats made by the TwelveLoaves hostesses…they all sound amazing:

And look who I finally got to meet in person while down in Florida…sweet Lora and her just as wonderful mom, Lizzie. These two are treasures…and beautiful inside and out!

I too am sitting here with morning coffee in hand gazing at the snow covering the front lawn and thank heavens not the streets any longer, until tomorrow of course:) I sure wouldn’t mind having one of those muffins for breakfast. Bill is on to something here and YOU well, you just made me dream of White Chocolate Raspberry Muffins:)

    Thank you so much for sharing, Liz…

  8. raspberry and white chocolate! Now that is a divine combo if I have ever seen one and since it is in a muffin form that means I can eat it anytime of the day right? LOL!

  9. Oh yum! My favorite berry paired with white chocolate. I want a bite. I guess I better get baking. Ha! I still have a bag of white choc chips from my Christmas baking. Now I know what I’m going to do with them. Now, just to pick up some fresh raspberries. Pinning! (Ha! Sounds like Charlie Sheen saying “winning”.)

  10. I live for anything white chocolate! These look right up my alley.
    Pinning for later!

  11. Gorgeous and tasty muffins Liz. And I need to find me some of those chocolate chunks – I’ll look for them next time I venture in to downtown Atlanta as they aren’t available in the stores near my house.

  12. Come to mama — those muffins!
    Now I want to meet Lora and her mom, too!

  13. Oh I absolutely love and adore muffins and the combination of raspberries and white chocolate is just irresistible :)

  14. Raspberries and white chocolate make the best muffins, Liz, but I guess you figured that out! So pretty! And how great that you got to meet Lora and her mom.

  15. Yes I wish these were in my kitchen for breakfast this morning, I can see why your family enjoyed them! I always admire your photos and love the attention you give to the background props and the placement of your food. Beautiful.

  16. Lora @cakeduchess says:

    I love your muffins, Lizzy. They would be so perfect now with a cup of coffee (and you at the table!!)It was so nice to spend some time with you. Miss you tons.xx

  17. Yumm white chocolate and raspberries in a perfect muffin vehicule. Sounds great. ha ha sounds like a normal winter day up here in Canada.

  18. Wow, lucky you getting to meet bloggers! It’s such an amazing community. I am intrigued by your use of discs instead of chips…I’m going to have to give that a go once my supply from a photo shoot runs out (I brought home about 7lbs of chocolate chips! but don’t worry, I shared!).
    Glad you got a thumbs up from Bill, always a nice compliment from such a picky eater!

  19. Lizzy, not only are these BEAUTIFUL, but my mouth is watering just thinking about the flavors!
    On a cold winter morning, with a large steaming cup of coffee….ahhhh! As always your photos jump right off the page. Perfection!

  20. I had to come and check these out after I saw them on Facebook! They look fantastic!

  21. Hi there Liz, and Lora (and mom)…. these are my favourite muffins… almost, I love blueberry too! I will try your recipe once I’m done with my PT. : )

  22. Lizzy,
    These muffins look delicious. Your photos always make me drool. It must be such fun to meet fellow bloggers in person.

  23. That’s Lora’s mom?! Whoa. . she looks crazy young! You and Lora are GORGEOUS! That trip to FL looked so fun! and using discs in order to have a bigger dose of white chocolate in each bite? These are my kind of muffins!!! beautiful, as always!!

  24. I was suppose to go to Ohio today and all flights were canceled. Now instead I am dreaming about how I can spend some time in the kitchen. I am thinking muffins would be a perfect wake me up tomorrow.

  25. These muffins look great! I could probably have it anytime. My husband is not a great fan of white chocolate so never get to try them at home.. Well I could bake for myself but I don’t get any pleasure eating alone…

  26. Raspberry.
    White Chocolate.
    Yessssssssss.

    Love the photo of you, Liz. PRETTY)))))))!!!! xx

  27. Like many people I love the combination of raspberry and white chocolate, but never thought in a muffin…looks delicious Liz…a must try!
    Have a a great week :D

  28. Does it get any better than raspberries and white chocolate? I think not.

  29. That’s a lovely photo of you. I noticed you use fresh raspberries in your recipe. Are they easy to buy in the middle of your winter? We keep hearing on the news about what a ferocious winter you’re having. I think raspberry and white chocolate muffins are my favourite! xx

  30. You’re muffins are so beautiful! And I am imagining how good these would be for breakfast. They definitely wouldn’t need butter or jam. :-) This will be a god treat to make for my friends that cannot have chocolate. Thanks for baking these for us!

  31. I’ve made a white chocolate and raspberry bread pudding but a muffin? How easy and delicious does this sound? very. What a treat to meet Lora and her mother!

  32. Great muffins, white chocolate and raspberries is a wonderful combination. I have only tried such muffins from the coffee shop and I was quite disappointed with them..I will have to try making these :)

  33. these look amazing Lizzy!!

  34. I think I need to join your party. Your muffins are the perfect mix. Yummy

  35. My morning muffins, right here :D

  36. Gorgeous muffins, Liz.
    It must have been a lot of fun meeting Lora and Lizzie.

  37. These muffins look wonderful Liz! Love the white chocolate and raspberry combination and they are the perfect excuse for turning on the oven to warm up the house in this snowy and chilly weather :) Love the picture of you ladies, you all look gorgeous!

  38. Liz, These muffins look so delicious. I think I’d be eating them for breakfast and dessert! I love the addition of the White Chocolate to ease those sweet cravings, yet keeping it healthy with raspberries. I always enjoy reading about your description of Bill’s reactions.

  39. Okay, Lizzy, how on earth do you stay soooo skinny? I don’t know how you do it with all your lovely baking. These muffins are gorgeous!

  40. Totally jealous that you and Lora got to meet up! Your muffins sound amazing. I’m definitely trying them Liz. xoxo

  41. What a superbly perfect combo of flavors! Raspberries are my absolute favorite fruit to pair with any chocolate! Thanks for sharing! Pinned with love!

  42. These look like the perfect way to do breakfast. I could even have one for dessert I’m thinking. I keep wanting to participate in #TwelveLoaves and somehow don’t get to it. I’m going to do something this month though. Or I’m going to try harder :-)

  43. Oh Liz, your photos are just beautiful. I love muffins morning, noon, and night and I know that these would disappear very quickly in my household.
