Muffin Mania

Yesterday I did a lot of baking for the kindergarten golf tournament fundraiser. I made two double batches of muffins and a double batch of the Chocolate Slice I have already posted on here about. I used two of Mum’s recipes that are favourites and that are delicious and reliable.  I did apple muffins “Aunt Jess’s Apple Muffins” and then one my Mum baked at their Cafe “Double Chocolate Muffins” but she adds a twist. 😉

The recipe’s are below for you as they are a firm favourite and I hope they will be for you too. 🙂

Double Chocolate Muffins

1  3/4 C Flour                                                  1/4 C cooa

1 tsp Baking Soda                                       1 C sugar

1 Egg                                                                     100 g melted butter

1 C yoghurt                                                      1/2 C milk

vannila essence                                           1/4 – 1/2 C choc chips or melts

Mix flour, cocoa, baking soda and sugar. Mix liquid ingrediants off egg, butter, yoghurt, milk and vannila essence and add to dry. Fold in choc chips.

For a twist:  Put a good sized spoonful of the mixture into each muffin tray portion. Then drop a small thumb nail size of cream cheese in each one and the add a small dollop of jam (I like to use raspberry or strawberry). Then place the rest of the mixture on top covering the secret inside.

Decorate tops by dusting with icing sugar.  For Christmas occasions you can place a halved cherry and some pieces of chocolate on top 10  minutes into cooking. 

 Bake at 180-200 degrees C for 15 -20 minutes            

Here is a photo of how the muffins look after putting a spoonful in the muffin trays and the cream cheese and jam:
