I made chocolate muffins this week.
They actually were super rich and chocolatey and truthfully probably a bit much to eat in one sitting. I found that cutting one in half was just a perfect amount for me.
250g self raising flour (8.8oz)
175ml milk. (6.2oz)
2 large eggs
100ml olive oil (3.5oz)
70g of chopped up chocolate (I had little chocolate Santas that we chopped up) (2.5oz)
25g cocoa powder (0.9oz)
2 teaspoons baking powder
75g Coconut sugar (or brown sugar – whatever you have in) (2.6oz)
100g caster sugar (3.5oz)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Icing or frosting to decorate with
Preheat the oven to 200C (395F).
Place 12 muffin cases in a muffin or cupcake tin.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together, adding the dry ingredients first.
Spoon the mix into the muffin cases.
Bake for around 20-25 minutes, until an inserted cocktail stick comes out clean.
Cool completely on a wire rack.
Decorate as desired.
