Recipe by Shannon Holmes
These are so good. This is based on a recipe from Bryanna Clark Grogan and learning about substitutions on flours and cocoa from Chef Deborah.

These were easy enough. But the cornstarch isn't in the directions. I simply added it with the rest of the dry in step 3. When they were baking, they smelled SO good. They all baked up kinda pointy on the top. And the bottom is crunchy. The texture, inside, is quite dense. Making them more like a cupcake than a muffin. The flavour is pretty good. Not too strong. They still taste good, they just have a strange texture combination. I also got 12 large AND 12 small muffins out of this recipe.
