Got this recipe from the Chocolate Lovers Cookbook. My mom used to make these for me and my brother.
- Melt butter.
- Mix together sugar and cocoa and add to melted butter.
- Add eggs and vanilla.
- Add flour by hand (Batter will be thin).
- Pour into paper muffin cups.
- Bake 20 minutes at 325 degrees.
I adore these lovely chocolate muffins! For their wonderful flavor & texture + such an easy prep, they clearly deserve 5*. BUT I wonder if the recipe is correct (complete might be a better word). They were fairly flat & their centers fell somewhat during the late stage of baking & the cooling. This has happened to me only when a recipe should have used self-rising flour or had baking powder or soda as an ingredient. If they are supposed to be flat, I would like to know so I can revise my rating. I do advise using paper liners as they stubbornly seemed overly fond of my muffin tin. Thx for sharing this yummy recipe that I made as a PAC choice & combined w/your Chocolate Mocha Frosting. :-) ... Edited to Add: The empty muffin spot in the pic was my taste test. :-)
