Do you miss me and my food posts? I bet you do ^^ I’m back with more interesting things, and today, is a new sweet dish: Chocolate Muffins. If you’re finding something yummy for your breakfast or your dessert which can immediately be loved by your children, look no further, here’s the solution. Simple and basic ingredients, easy to make, absolutely delicious, all your family will have fun making muffins and enjoy them xD
At the first sight, you can ask what is the difference between muffins and cupcakes. Thanks to joyofbaking.com, now I can understand. The big difference is in the making of the batter:
“With cupcakes the creaming method is most often used, that is, where the butter and sugar are beaten together, to which eggs are added and then the flour is folded in. With muffins, most times you do not have to pull out the mixer, you only need two bowls, one for wet ingredients and one for dry ingredients. Combine the two and your batter is made.”
Muffins are more like a quick bread, but you can easily turn muffins into cupcakes by adding the frosting ^^
Ingredients (for 12 muffins)
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup (230 grams) all purpose flour
100 grams dark chocolate
180 grams light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C. Melt the dark chocolate and unsalted butter together, set aside and let it cool for 5-10 minutes.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the mixture of melted chocolate and butter, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla extract.
3. In another large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until the ingredients are combined. Don’t over mix.
4. Fill the muffin cups with the batter (the muffin cups will be full). Place in the oven and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean (about 18-20 mins). Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for about 5 minutes before removing from pans.
