Every chocolate lover’s dream, these muffins. They’re moist, chocolatey, and absolutely delectable. When fresh raspberries are in season, use them in this recipe; otherwise, use frozen raspberries. Just make sure to thoroughly drain them or the muffins will be soggy and mushy. You may need to cook them for a couple of minutes longer to ensure they’re thoroughly cooked.
- 160g all-purpose flour
- 30g cocoa powder
- 130g caster sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg
- 80ml neutral oil
- 80ml milk
- 120g sour cream
- 120g raspberries
- 80g dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Paper baking cups should be used to line a standard 12-cup muffin pan. Place aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
Separately, whisk together the egg, oil, milk, and sour cream. Stir wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Fold in the raspberries and two-thirds of the dark chocolate chips. Fill prepared baking cups evenly with batter. Top with the remaining raspberries and dark chocolate chips.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
Chocolate brings me joy. Very pleased. I’m not sure if it’s the snow or some sort of post-labor hormonal thing. What difference does it make? A girl does not need an excuse to eat chocolate. Ever.
My chocolate should be dark, rich, smooth, and intense. There’s almost nothing better in the world than swirling a piece of chocolate in your mouth and letting it melt slowly on your tongue as you discover a spectacular rainbow of flavors hidden so well behind its dark gloomy appearance. It’s pure magic.
Baking with chocolate is a different type of magic. Every time I see a bar of chocolate transform into a gorgeous moist cake, changing its texture, color, and appearance, I am in awe. Every time you bake with chocolate, you breathe new life into it. You have the ability to transform it from something amazing to something truly spectacular.
Chocolate can be made even more exciting than it was before. The options are limitless. You can spice it up by adding a shot of liquor, sprinkling it with salt, drowning it in caramel, lightening it up with fruit, or just going crazy. You could also add more chocolate if desired. You can’t go wrong with that, can you?
Me? I like to add some color and a fresh, vibrant zing to it. A soft and moist chocolatey muffin filled with ruby red tart raspberries and topped with more chocolate…. Please, yes!
