Happy Women’s Day to all you beautiful ladies out there.. 🙂 Do we need a day of our own? Isn’t everyday our day? I think it is.. !
Well, I finally baked again today.. Yes, after a long time…guess I was waiting for an occasion..
Baking some muffins has been on my list from a long time…
I love to bake but don’t really know what holds me back.. Anyways there will be loads of bakes updated henceforth… I promise.. 🙂 Enjoy all the pampering while you can without demanding for it.. the rest of the days we demand it anyways.. 😉
Ingredients: (Makes 6 medium-sized muffins) Preparation Time: 25 mins
All purpose flour – 150 gms
Castor sugar – 90 gms /brown if you prefer
Baking powder – 8 gms
Melted butter/sunflower oil – 50 gms/50 ml
Milk – 50 ml
Egg – 1, beaten lightly
Almond flakes – a handful
Dark chocolate chips – 50 gms
Bicarbonate of soda – 1.5 gms
Vanilla essence – 1/8 tsp
Salt – a pinch
Cup medium cake moulds – 6
Medium Muffin paper cases – 6
Pre-heat oven to 190 degree C. Sieve together the flour, sugar Bicarbonate of soda and baking powder. Add the dark chocolate chips & the almond flakes. Lightly beat the egg, add to the melted butter & milk.
Gently add the wet ingredients to the dry till they are combined, and no flour is visible. Do not mix a lot as this will end up making the muffins tough.
Divide the batter to fit into 6 muffin cases. Do not add more than 3/4 to each mould, as they will puff up.
Remember to grease your tin if you are not using cases, or they will stick, then bake for approximately 20 minutes or until they are well risen and firm to the touch.
Remove from the oven, and leave in the baking tray for 5 minutes or so to firm up, before turning out on-to a cooling rack.
Eat warm right away.. 😉 or leave to cool completely for at least 15 minutes.
You can store them for a couple of days in airtight containers.
Warm up & serve or serve as is.. 🙂 They are so yummy & soft that they will melt in your mouth..
