Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate Muffins

They really are melt-in-your-mouth muffins. If you cut them when they are freshly baked, the softened chocolate will melt out from the inside.

Ingredients: about 12 muffins

☆Cake flour
210 g
☆Cocoa powder
30 g
☆Baking powder
2 teaspoons
120 g
Light brown sugar
130 g
2 large
120 ml
★Chocolate bar
1 or more, to your liking...
★Chocolate chips
to taste


1. Preparation... Bring the butter and eggs to room temperature. Combine the ☆ dry ingredients, and sift together. Line the muffin mold with muffin cups.
2. Cream the butter really well. Add the light brown sugar, and mix until the mixture becomes white and fluffy.
3. Add the beaten eggs to Step 2 little by little, and mix well.
4. Alternately add the sifted ☆ dry ingredients and milk into 3-4 batches, and mix with a spatula. (Please be careful not to over mix.)
5. Fill the cups with the Step 4 batter about 1/2 full, press down the broken chocolate pieces in the middle of the surface. Pour in the remaining batter, and sprinkle in the chocolate chips.
6. Lightly drop the muffin mold 2-3 times onto the counter to remove air bubbles. Bake in the oven for 25-28 minutes at 180℃.
7. They look like this when baked. Cool in the mold without removing (It'll makes the muffins moist).
