WOW! The ultimate chocolate muffin for the ultimate chocolate fan! These were so fluffy and rich that with every bite you know something so good must be a sin!
30g unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
255g semisweet chocolate chips - divided use
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2/3 cup whole milk
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Melt the unsweetened chocolate and about 1/2 cup of the semisweet chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Preheat oven to 175*C.
Grease and flour a 12 cup muffin tin or line with paper liners.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, beat eggs; add the brown sugar, milk, butter, melted chocolate mixture and vanilla; mix well. Pour this mixture into dry flour mixture. Stir until just moistened; do not over mix. Gently fold remaining chocolate chunks into batter.
Fill prepared muffin tins two thirds full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in pan on wire rack.
Makes approx. 12 muffins
Do I really have to give an verdict on this one? I baked 12 of these on Sunday as a little surprise when Soeri came home from the weekend at his grandparents! Today is Tuesday and I just ate the last one while entering this post!!! I have never seen muffins disappear so fast. Just one word of warning though: Please serve with tall glass of milk or other liquid ... no, not because they are dry ... because the are so rich!
