Baked these quick & easy warm chocolate muffins for our brekkie :D
Recipe adapted from Joy of Baking, below my slightly modified version as I've halved the recipe and reduced the amount of sugar.
Yields 6 muffins
50g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
110g all-purpose flour
30g unsweetened cocoa powder
60g light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
65g milk or semisweet chocolate chips (I used chocolate chips)
Snow powder for dusting (optional)
Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. (I adjusted my oven to 180ºC). Position rack in center of oven. Butter the muffin pan, or line with paper liners.
In a large measuring cup or bowl whisk together the melted butter, eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract.
In another large bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients together : flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Fold in with a rubber spatula and stir only until the ingredients are combined. Do not over mix the batter or tough muffins will result.
Evenly fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter using two spoons or an ice cream scoop.
Dust with some snow powder (a touch of make-up ... hee.. hee .. "white foundation") ... Enjoy !
Happy baking ^-^ !
You are so funny calling the icing sugar the white foundation... No need make up lah... These chocolate cupcakes are as good as it is :D
