  • 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Spray a 12-hole muffin pan with oil or line the holes with paper cases and spray around the top edges of the pan.

  • 2. Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar and chocolate bits and make a well in the centre.

  • 3. Put the milk, sour cream, butter, eggs and vanilla essence into a separate bowl or jug and whisk until combined. Pour the mixture into the well in the dry ingredients and, using a large metal spoon, mix lightly and quickly until just combined. Fold through the raspberries.

  • 4. Spoon the muffin mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Set aside the muffins for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

  • 5. Dust the muffins lightly with icing sugar before serving.

  • Tip: An ice cream scoop is ideal for filling the muffin pans evenly.
