Double Chocolate Muffins



Today my little angel has grown a month older. 
When we look back and remember of time she was born, we are amazed by the way time flies. Just a couple of months back she was this little baby learning how to sit stand and walk and today she is learning how to speak and says the most sweetest of words in her beautiful voice. We get so thrilled to hear her say new words everyday and love to hear her non stop babble. Its so amazing to see how we learn to talk and understand the meaning of words and how we learn to connect them. The wonders of nature!!


These double chocolate muffins have been waiting on my 'to-bake' list for quite some time. I used a very basic cake recipe and added some melted dark chocolate in the batter and topped with loads of chocolate chips for this sinful delight. A perfect recipe for my 'Sweet day' on the blog which is extra special today being coupled with Dusshera/Bijoya Dashami. 


Ingredients: For 6 muffins
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup refined flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar, powdered
  • 1/4 cup melted dark chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips




Procedure:
Preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius. Line muffin cups with liners or grease and line muffin cups with butter paper. If using silicone ones, grease lightly.
Melt the dark chocolate on a double boiler or microwave for a minute. Let it cool.
In a bowl add butter and sugar and whisk till it becomes fluffy and creamy.
Sift flour and baking powder and add to the butter mixture. Add egg and mix well. Now add the melted chocolate and mix. 
Sprinkle some chocolate chips in the batter and leave a few to sprinkle on the top.
Pour the batter in the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle few chocolate chips on top and press them gently with the back of a spoon.
Bake for 20 mins or till a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


There is something about freshly baked muffins that is so difficult to explain in words. The aroma that comes out from the hot oven can only be experienced in real. Coupled with the oozing chocolate chips, these muffins are truly a sinful delight. Enjoy them freshly out of the oven.



Sending this recipe to Bake Fest #12 and Vardhini

Happy Sinful Indulgence
