Easy Basic Chocolate Chunky Muffins

Easy Basic Chocolate Chunky Muffins

They're easy to make, just mix everything together! They're kind of like American-style muffins with chocolate and nut chunks.

Ingredients: 6 muffins (6 cm diameter)

A:
Cake flour
100 g
Cocoa
20 g
Baking powder
1 teaspoon
Salt
a pinch
B:
Butter
60 g
Sugar
60 g
Egg
1
Milk
70 ml
Vanilla essence
a small amount
Walnuts
25 g
Milk chocolate
40 g

Steps

1. Bring the butter, egg and milk to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 180℃. Break each square of chocolate into 4 pieces. Toast the walnuts in the oven while preheating and crush lightly after they've cooled slightly.
2. Put the A ingredients in a large bowl and mix well with a whisk.
3. Cream the butter in a separate bowl with a whisk, add the sugar and egg and blend well. Mix in the milk and vanilla essence.
4. Fold the ingredients from Step 3 into Step 2 with a spatula, mixing just until the flour is incorporated. (Do not over mix.) Lightly mix in the walnuts and broken chocolate.
5. Fill the muffin cups about 80% full. Smooth the tops and bake at 180℃ for 20~25 minutes. They're done when a bamboo skewer comes out clean. Cool on a rack.

Story Behind this Recipe

I often made muffins on the weekends. To tell the truth, I really wanted to make American-style muffins, so I modified recipes from "Allrecipes" and cookbooks, but they never turned out well. When I modified American recipes, they tasted Japanese. If you cut the amount of butter and sugar any more, they won't taste good, so this is the final version.
