From KG’s Oven >> Choco-chip Muffins

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?

 

muffin

 

You’ll need:

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

 

Method

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!
