An incredibly simple recipe for delicious Chocolate Muffins. Pimp as you see fit or just stick to classic chocolate chips. I like to add this Chocolate Ganache but my children prefer them plain. Either way they're very good.
Pre-heat your oven to 200 C. Put all the dry ingredients for the muffins into a large bowl. I sieve the cocoa to remove any lumps. Mix well to combine.
Mix all the liquid ingredients for the muffins together well.
LIne a muffin tray with paper cases.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and mix well until no pockets of flour remain.
Dollop into the paper cases the muffin batter.Fill 2/3 to the top. Bake for 15/20 minutes.
Place on a wire rack to cool.
Chop the chocolate into small pieces about 1/2 cm chunks.
Bring the cream to the boil in a saucepan. Pour over the chocolate, leave for a few minutes and then stir until the choc is completely melted.
When the mixture is cool add the icing sugar, mix well until smooth and then refrigerate for an hour or so.
Decorate your muffins either piped or freehand it matters not.
