Did ya know the difference between cupcakes and muffins? Did ya even know a difference existed? I didn’t and always used both interchangeably. For those who know this, you are indeed cool :) :)! Those who don’t, worry not..KG is here!
Cup cakes are smaller, lighter and usually have frosting and decorations on top. Muffins are larger and do not have frosting/icing. The former is served with tea and the latter with coffee!! Enlightened now?
11/2 cups self raising flour
1 cup- castor brown sugar
150 gms unsalted butter (softened)
1 big bar of Lindt dark chocolate
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup choco-chip bits
3 large eggs
2 tsp Vanilla extract
Beat the softened butter with castor sugar until fluffy and light. Beat in the eggs to this and slowly add the flour. Mix well until creamy . Add milk and vanilla extract and mix well. Add choco-chip bits and set aside. Microwave the Lindt bar (ooohh sinful!) for about a minute and a half on high. Pour the melted chocolate to the cake mixture and swirl it with a spatula. Do not mix it completely.
Transfer to a tray lined with Muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes on 180 degrees in a preheated oven, until firm on top.
Serve with coffee!
