Everyone loves freshly made muffins and these quick and simple chocolate muffins with delicious chocolate chunks are made in just four easy steps.
250g self-raising flour
25g cocoa powder
2tsp baking powder
175g caster sugar (or 125g caster sugar and 50g light brown sugar)
2 large eggs, beaten
100ml mild olive oil
75g plain chocolate (broken into chunks)
2tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 170ºC (375ºF, gas mark
Line a 12-hole deep muffin tray with paper muffin cases.
Sift together the flour, cocoa and baking powder, stir in the sugar.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix lightly together.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared cases.
Bake for approximately 25 – 30 minutes or until golden and springy to the touch.
Cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack and leave until cold, although they are pretty awesome while still warm 🙂
If you still have these a few days after baking them, pop one in the microwave for 5 – 10 seconds, they’re just like you have just taken them out of the oven 😉
