  • 2 ¼ cups flour (270g)
  • ¾ cup granulated white sugar (150g)
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk (240ml)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil (120ml)
  • 2 vanilla beans* (or 2 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 3 tablespoon white chocolate, grated (13g)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate chunks) (160g)

Additional white chocolate chips for sprinkling on top (optional)


    • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a 12 muffin pan with muffin liners. Set aside. 
    • In a large bowl sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine. Set aside. 
    • In another large bowl whisk egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla* just until combined. Add dry ingredients and stir to combine. Fold in grated white chocolate and white chocolate chips. Divide batter into muffin liners and sprinkle a few additional chocolate chips on top. Fill liners almost full. You will get about 12 muffins. Bake for 5 minutes at 425°F (220°C) then lower the temperature to 350°F (175°C) and bake additional 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Let cool to room temperature. Store leftovers at room temperature up to 3 days.  



    *First, cut off the straight end of the vanilla bean. Then place the tip of your sharp knife below the curled end and cut the vanilla bean through the middle of the bean lengthwise. Although you don't need to cut it all the way through, it's ok when you do so. Then open the vanilla bean and scrape out the flavorful seeds with the back of your knife. Just use the seeds.
