Rich and Dense Triple Chocoletta Muffins
Submitted - Ben
Ingredients2 1/4 cups self raising flour
1 cup caster or superfine sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup cola drink
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs at room temperature
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
MethodStep 1 - Preheat oven to 160C/320F. Line a muffin tray with liners or spray the holes with non stick spray.
Step 2 - Whisk the flour, sugar, cocoa powder and salt together until combined well. In a measuring jug, measure out the cola, vegetable oil and vanilla and then whisk the eggs in.
Step 3 - Make a well in the centre and pour in the wet mixture along with the chocolate chips. Do not overstir - stop as soon as the mixture comes together. Not to sound overly dramatic but overmixing is the death of a light, fluffy muffin. Okay that did sound very dramatic didn't it?
Step 4 - Using two tablespoons, scoop the batter into the prepared liners. Bake for 23-25 minutes-I like to take them out just before they're completely dry so that they're a bit gooey in the centre. I don't mean to sound strange with the 23 minute thing but I found that they were gooey but not runny in the centre at 23 minutes.
