Cute and Quick | Chocolate Muffins {Recipe}

Sunday, 4 May 2014

I am actually posting a recipe with proper pictures, whoohoo! These are sure signs that I am back into blogging. And then there is homemade cake in the house - feels like life is (nearly) normal again. 

Today's new recipe is nothing fancy BUT this the first recipe I made with Baby MiH. Let's face he was not totally involved in the process, no little fingers messing around with chocolate - no one is allowed to mess with chocolate. He was testing the ingredients from his high chair, and repeating some of the words I was saying as we went along. And this can only mean one thing - yes, this is a very quick recipe - attention span of a 16-months-old baby: 10 minutes max if there is entertainment (and food). 

Before I give you the recipe, there are a couple of things you need to know. I made this recipe 3 times now, but in different shapes (loaf cake, madeleine and cupcakes). Cupcakes are the best way to serve this. Which leads me to the next thing, if you are going to serve this to friends, make sure you have a spoon handy for them because it does not hold really together - it is really light and yummy but is messy - although in a cupcake form it is MUCH better than in the cake loaf one (that was a disaster). 

This is a French WW recipe (although they did not add the chocolate napping on top - so you have to add this for your points).  

You are going to need (for 10 muffins, 5 ProPoints each):

  • 1 egg 
  • 90 g caster sugar  
  • 1 pot of very low fat natural yoghurt
  • 100 g flour 
  • 11 g of baking powder
  • 100g chocolate (dark, milk or white)
  • 9 tsp Oil
And how to make them

1.Preheat oven to 180°C (gas mark 6). In a bowl, mix the egg and sugar until the mixture whitens. Add yogurt and flour and baking powder. Add oil to smooth the mixture.

2. Melt chocolate in microwave with 2 tablespoons of water (leave for 2 minutes at 750W). Pour into your main preparation, mix well.

3.Divide the mixture into a cupcake baking dish lines with cases - bake for 25 minutes.

4. (optional) Melt more chocolate as in step 2 and pour on cupcakes.

Yes, it is that easy. Nothing fancy but little cakes that my boys love - and so do I! All I need now is a cup of tea.. Who's putting the kettle on?

Happy Sunday everyone!
