Muffin de Chocolate - Chocolate Muffin

Muffins come in all shapes and sizes... everyone has a favouite flavour!  They are the perfect run away treat or afternoon tea snack.  My aunt in Argentina always has a bowl of muffins at the ready for her ravenous children and grand children!  Over the next few days I'll post four of the top favourites as voted by the speed at which they disappear!  Mum used to make these little treats for our lunch box snacks they are so easy to make you can whip a batch pretty quickly!

I'll start with the classic - Chocolate Muffin!


Makes 8 muffins

  • 200g of wheatflour
  • 30g sweet cocoa powder
  • Salt
  • 90g of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 100g of drinking chocolate
  • 50g of butter (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup of milk
Sift in a bowl the flour and cocoa, pinch of salt and baking powder.  Melt the drinking chocolate with a few spoonfulls of warm milk to help liquify and unite and pour into the mixture.  Add in the melted butter and mix with the egg, milk and mix well until a dense paste is formed.
Place in muffin moulds and cook for 15-20mins in a pre-heated oven (180degrees).  Eat warm fresh out of the oven or as a snack for later!
Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
