Saint Mary MacKillop Muffins

The Miracle of the St Mary MacKillop Muffins:
While talking on the phone to my daughter on her birthday, 13 October 2010, I had a muffin epiphany. A recipe appeared in my mind and I knew I had to bake the muffins on 17 October 2010 to celebrate the canonisation of Sister Mary MacKillop. The dark bitter chocolate symbolises her difficulties with the hierarchy of the church in Australia and the sweet white chocolate the purity and love of God. Brown and white were also the colours of her habit.

Wet Mix
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk

Dry Mix
2 1/2 cups self raising flour
100 grams white chocolate
100 grams dark chocolate

Preheat the oven.
Prepare the muffin pans by greasing them well.
Blend thoroughly the butter and the sugar.
Beat in eggs and then milk.
Carefully mix in the flour taking care not to over mix.
Stir in the white and dark chocolate.
Place the mixture in the prepared tins and bake.
Bake 200 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes.

  1. The religious and the delicious mix in strange and mysterious ways. I love the cheeky irrelevance and sweetness of your posts. These muffins look so yummy.
