Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Black Forest Muffins

Now if you have finished drooling at that lets talk :)…. last week I made black forest muffins and though I have many many many recipes to be posted here and some reviews too I knew this had to be done the first. It came out deliciously yummmm. I mean I think the combination of cherries and dark chocolate is a match made in heaven and nothing can ever go wrong when you combine them. I made this for a boy’s only trip the hubby was going and not just they love it, Ojas put up a fight with N saying these are yumm muffins and you can’t take them. These are mine 🙂 All this certainly makes the effort worth if u ask me not that they are difficult to make anyways

Recipe : Black Forest Muffins (adapted from The Muffin Bible)

Makes about 18 medium sized muffins

What I used

  • 2 eggs
  • 150gm dark chocolate
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 cup tinned cherries

How I made it

  • Bring the water to boil and melt the chopped dark chocolate in it.
  • Mix this with the rest of the ingredients apart from cherries till just mixed
  • Fold in cherries.
  • Pour in muffins lined with paper cups or greased and dusted
  • Bake in a pre heated oven at 180C for about 20 minutes till the skewer comes out clean

the muffin is very light and spongy and totally sinful… enjoy till it lasts 🙂

And I am sending this to Champa’s Bake – Off
