White chocolate muffins with pecan frosting

These are decadent and downright scrummy!


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ cup water
  • 100 grams butter, melted and cooled
  • Topping
  • 70 gram packet pecans, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons mascarpone or lite cream cheese
  • ¼-½ teaspoon vanilla essence


  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar into a large bowl. Stir through the white chocolate chips and make a well in the centre.
  2. In a jug, mix together the sour cream, eggs, milk and water. Stir into the dry ingredients, with the melted butter.
  3. Divide the mixture evenly among 12 well-greased muffin tins.
  4. Bake at 220ºC for 15-18 minutes until cooked.
  5. Divide the topping equally between the muffins, spreading it out just a little. Grill under a moderate heat for about 1 minute, just until the topping has caramelised, but without over-browning the muffins. Cool in the tins for 5 minutes before serving.
