This recipe is off the Cadbury website - I mean, you can't go wrong with recipes off a chocolate website can you?
Chocolate Chunk Muffins
3 cups plain flour
3 tablespoons Cocoa
1 tablespoon baking powder
1½ cups brown sugar (I did 1 cup)
200g (8 rows) Dark Cooking Chocolate, chopped (or I actually just used 200g of chocolate drops as that's all I had... the Pams brand aren't the most chocolately tasting ones but they are dairy free)
1½ cups milk (rice milk)
120g butter, melted (dairy free spread..)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
- Preheat the oven to 180°C. Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the brown sugar and chocolate. Stir to combine. Add the milk, butter and eggs. Mix until just combined, but do not over-beat. (I underlines that because that is a common mistake people make when making muffins. They aren't like cakes and cupcakes, just a gentle stir until all the ingredients are combined is all that is needed)
- Spoon the mixture into medium (5 cm) greased muffin pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
- Leave in the pan for 5 minutes before removing. Serve warm.
And how did I find mine came out? Really yummy actually. Haven't eaten one cold yet, I do wonder why they say to serve warm - are they going to be gross tomorrow? Will update this post once I have tried one cold. They could maybe have done with a smidgen more cocoa powder, will have to try it again with an extra tablespoon or something, see how that goes!
Editting to say - they are still pretty damned good eaten cold!
