The Muffin lady is back again!
Well, that is the title I have been bestowed by none other Arva of I Live in a Frying Pan.
I kind of like the sound of it.
For this Monday An of Bakerstreet shared with us the recipe of Chocolate Brownie Muffins. There was no way I was going to miss making these lovelies.
An called them the best of both worlds – Brownies + Muffins. It cannot get better than this. They also are full of nutella goodness and I added plenty of choco chips to make it even more irresistible.
The recipe has been adapted from the Women’s Weekly Home Baked and in my opinion, is a keeper.
The only change I should have made would have been to avoid pistachios and add walnuts instead. Pistachios felt a little weird but then they did give them that spot of colour which I loved. I also added 2 tablespoons of instant coffee for that special punch.
Recipe for Chocolate Brownie Muffins
2 cups Self Raising Flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup caster sugar
2 tbsp coffee powder ( my inclusion)
60 grams melted butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pistachios
1/2 cup nutella
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1. Preheat the oven to 400F
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, sugar.
3. Add in the nutella, egg, milk, sour cream and butter. Gently stir to combine.
4. Stir in the pistachios and chocolate chips. Spoon the mixture into a prepared muffin tray.
5. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes
Baking these lovelies definitely makes me feel festive but as I observe my expanding waistline, all the cheer evaporates almost instantly. I wish that God give me the strength to resist baking in the coming months, so that I can get my diet and exercise schedule on track. Until then, well, I am going to enjoy these brownie muffins with my morning cuppa.
Hopeless, I know!!
