Dark Chocolate Muffins

We are starting the second week of BM#37. I took up Kid's Delight Oven Baked Treats, hosted this month by PJ. The moment she told me that was her choice, I knew I would be sending her loads, or rather handful of course. So since then, I have been having dishes that would fit that theme, naturally it being a Kid's event, I had to do what my kids would love.

What else than some cakes, rolls and cookies? So for the next three days I will be sharing some baked sweet and savory treats that are snack box friendly and would fit the after school treat as well. Since I can't have these for all the themes, I had to take a call.

These muffins have dark chocolate chunks in them, that bursts out when you bite in. Surprisingly my boys don't mind the bitter dark chocolate. So I ended up making these for their snacks.


Dark Chocolate Muffins

Ingredients Needed:

All purpose Flour - 1 cup
Corn Flour - 1 tbsp
Icing Sugar - 3/4 cup
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Baking powder - 1/2 tsp
Condensed Milk - 2 tbsp

Curds/ Yogurt - 1/2 cup
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Butter - 2 tsp
Milk - 1 - 2 tbsp
Dark Chocolate - 50 gms

Muffin Liners - 6 nos

How to make the muffins:

Line the muffin moulds with the liners and keep it aside.

Sift the dry ingredients in a bowl.

Melt the butter, beat the curds. Add the butter, condensed milk, olive oil and curds to the dry ingredients.

Add milk as required to make the batter loose. Gently mix in well. Don't beat at this stage.

Using a spoon, pour one spoon of the batter into the mould, place the dark chocolate pieces in the middle and place another spoon of batter on top.

Pre heat the oven at 185 degree C.

Bake at 185 degree C for 25 - 30 minute. Don't check for done ness until the first 15 mins.

Use a toothpick to see if the muffins are done. Insert the stick in the centre and if it comes out clean, it's done.

Once the full time is done, allow it to cool in the oven for 5 mins, then remove and cool outside for a while.
