Chocolate Muffins

Every now and then, I get to amaze myself. This doesn’t happen too often though – so take note.

Chocolate Muffins

It was another “Bakerman” day for my almost four year old boy at his school.  Each mom gets a turn. Lots of swearing and cursing happens in the kitchen then.  Lots of wine devoured. Lots of mistakes are made. And evidently, more swearing occurs.  Husbands beware.  Children, hide… It’s baking time for Mum.

Luckily you don’t have to dread that “bring a plate of eats” or “cupcakes for school” days anymore. This recipe is ridiculously easy and unbelievably chocolatey.   Forget the icing.  Who needs that when you can indulge in a rich chocolate muffin, with gooey chocolate that just melts in your mouth?  Heaven in a muffin.

I used my ever so easy Chocolate Cake recipe that my mom used to bake when I was still a little tjokker.  Those memories are so pure and precious; my brother and I would almost always fight for the bowl. Lots of lickin’ and kickin’ – at once.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius, prepare a medium sized muffin pan with cupcake liners – this recipe makes about 28 muffins.
