These are some great muffins, you can vary the recipe to your taste, e.g add toasted nuts or almonds, raisins, substitute sugar for good quality brown sugar.. etc
Ingredients (Renders: abt 16 to 18 units)
450 grs self raising flour (or all purpose flour + 2 tspns baking powder)
200 grs sugar
200 grs bitter cacao powder
375 ml milk
125 grs butter, melted
3 large eggs
2 tspns vainila
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a bowl thieve flour, salt, baking powder if needed, sugar and cacao.
In a separate bowl, mix eggs, milk and butter. (just mix, do not whisk)
Stir dry ingredients into wet ones, in two or three times, mixing as little as possible.
The mixture will look a bit thick, not very fluid. So you can spoon some of the mixture into the muffin molds previously buttered or sprayed with veg oil. Be sure to fill not more than 3/4 of the mold as it will grow.
Cook until the mixture grows and it starts cracking on the top. Insert a stick into the muffins and it should come out dry.
Sprinkle some glazing sugar on top if you want, or just cover with your favorite topping.
I left them simple.
