4. Add the egg yolks to Step 3 one by one, mixing each time for about 1.5 minutes to emulsify.

6. Add the remaining dry ingredients and egg whites in 2 batches each, and fold them in.
7. Add the milk with the dissolved coffee in it to Step 6. Add the small chocolate pieces, and fold in until the batter becomes lustrous.
8. Scoop the Step 7 batter into the muffin cups with a spoon, and bake for 25 minutes at 180℃. After baking, cool on a rack.
