The muffin man... the muffin man...
No my girls haven't managed to drive me insane yet...
Its been a rainy morning begging for baking. The girls voted in favour of Apple Cinnamon Pancakes, Chocolate Chip Muffins & Hot Chocolate. The question that arises is..... how much chocolate is too much????
The Choco Chip Muffins need,
1 cup Unbleached Self Raising Flour
1/2 teaspoon Soda Bicarb
1/2 Cup Raw Sugar, powdered finely
140 ml Non Dairy Milk + 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar, mixed and set aside
2 Tablespoons Flora, softened (Any non dairy margarine is good)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
50 grams Vegan Dark Chocolate Chips
Sieve the flour, sugar and soda bi- carb into a mixing bowl.
Heat the oven to 220 degrees C and line the muffin pan with paper liners.
Make a well in the center of the dry mix and slowly pour in the buttermilk, vanilla extract, dark chocolate chips and softened margarine.
Mix gently with a wooden spoon till the batter reaches a reasonably smooth, dropping consistency.
I use an ice cream scoop to drop measured spoonfuls of batter into the paper liners.
Bake for 20 - 22 minutes or till a skewer inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
These muffins need to be on the softer side for the gooey chocolate feel.
Eat warm, when they taste the best!!
