Rich Muffins

Rich Muffins

These straight-forward muffins are soft inside.
I used more butter so they are richer than usual.
They have nice cracks on top You can cut the recipe in half.

Ingredients: 6 medium muffin cups

Unsalted butter
100 g
Sugar
100 g
Eggs
2
✩Cake flour
200 g
✩Almond powder
20 g
✩Baking powder
2 teaspoons
Milk
70 ml
Vanilla extract
A few drops
Chocolate chips, chopped almonds, etc.
As you like

Steps

1. Preheat the oven to 180℃. Bring the butter to room temperature and beat in a bowl until creamy.
2. Add sugar in three batches and beat until almost white in color.
3. Add the beaten eggs in three batches, mixing well each time. To prevent separation, do not add the eggs at once!
4. Sift together the ✩ marked ingredients and fold into the bowl. Add the milk and combine.
5. Add vanilla extract and fold in the chocolate chips, nuts, etc.
6. Fill the muffin cups about 70% full. The muffin rises when baking so if you put too much batter into the cups, it will overflow (I have experienced this).
7. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes and it's done. Use a toothpick to check if they're done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I generally use oil for muffins since it's cheaper and easier. But I made these with butter since these were for gifting.
I occasionally make these special muffins at home. My family loves them.
