Ingredients

125g unsalted butter, softened
185g caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
250g self-raising flour, sifted
125ml buttermilk
280g white chocolate chips
white chocolate, shaved, to decorate

White chocolate cream cheese icing
100g white chocolate
60ml cream
200g cream cheese, softened
40g icing sugar

Method

Preheat the oven to 170°C

Lightly grease twelve 125 m (1/2 cup) muffin tins.

Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl with electric beaters until pale and creamy.

Gradually add the egg, beating well after each addition.

Add the vanilla essence and beat until combined.

Fold in the flour alternately with the buttermilk, then fold in the chocolate bits.

Fill each muffin hole three-quarters full with the mixture and bake for 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of each cake.

Leave in the tins for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool — loosen around the edges if the cakes stick to the tins.
