Recipe: Double Chocolate Muffins

Hello sweeties,

at the beginning of july I made a "baking marathon" for hubs workmates. In that company it is tradition that you bring at least 3 cakes at your birthday. And he had spare no pains and placed his wife in front of the oven. Whew! That was a hard day, but it was harder to have a cheesecake (new york style, not the german one) in the fridge and not allowed to eat a piece. Torture!

Beside the cheesecake I made a lot of double chocolate muffins. They are so … chocolatey. Yummy! (And I took a few beside for the baker … me!). Today I wanna share the recipe with you, because they are the best chocolate muffins I ever tried. Everyone who eat one was blown away. Only because I think of the soft chocolatey texture my mouth is watering.
Okay, okay … I stop raving and give you the recipe.

  • Preheat the oven at 190 °C (375 °F) upper and lower heat and prepare the muffin pan
  • Melt the 125 g dark chocolate (only the one with the 70%, not the other one at the end of the recipe) with the butter. Place it aside and let it cool down a bit.
  • Stir the eggs with the sugar until it's creamy. Mix in the sour cream and the milk.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour with cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Take your egg mix and add the melted chocolate and the flour mix.
  • Chop the whole milk and the dark chocolate into chunks (not too small) and fold them into the dough.
  • Fill it into the muffin pan and bake it for ca. 20–25 minutes.

The preparation is a bit complex, but the muffins are worth it. You'll forget the work when you eat the first one, when is still warm.

What's your favourite muffins?
