This recipe took FOREVER to reach. Way too many hours on the web, way too many hours in the kitchen, tweaking (while thinking maybe I ought to get a life?!) Anyway, here it is, medicine for the soul in the crisp, cold of Autumn. Please don't be deterred by the amount of spice as it really is imperative in producing what slowly becomes the most delicious, mellow, sticky blend of...sigh!
As a rule I tend to weigh ingredients when baking for accuracy, however should anyone be interested in this but unsure of the conversion from grams to cups, just say the word and I'll send them over :-)
On recently receiving a great review on a recipe I posted some time ago it reminded me of the changes I've since made. Although in essence the recipe is pretty similar, tweaks here and there have raised this muffin's game!
I bake daily and having failed to find a chocolate muffin recipe that 'hit the spot' I decided to take matters into my own hands, hence this recipe. Somewhat similar to a cupcake in texture, a lighter crumb and good depth of flavour gives you a muffin that's totally chocolate dream delicious!
One sad overripe banana looking for a new lease of life and the remains of a carton of sour cream? That's how this recipe came together one morning. They're moist and flavoursome without the banana knocking your socks off. Enjoy!
Loving the peanut butter/chocolate combination but fancy a change? These muffins definitely tempt the taste buds. (I have a tendency to prefer bitter sweet chocolate yet here, paired with the mild taste of Cashew a good quality milk/semi sweet chocolate approx 40% cocoa solids is recommended), enjoy!
NB This recipe makes 6 reg sized muffins but can be doubled with equally successful results.
I bake muffins daily for my partner to snack on mid morning. If you're a lover of a good Cappuccino, you really want to try these. Moist, fluffy, and loaded with great flavour, really, they're too good not to try! If you're out of sour cream just use milk, if you've only got instant coffee to hand, no worries use that, either way these are super tasty.
(Incidentally, I often halve this recipe with equally good results).
This is our favourite Peanut Butter muffin recipe, (having tried a few). The balance of flavours is just right, they're not too heavy and very moreish. That said I deliberately make just six at a time! However should you want to bake a full batch this recipe doubles with equal success.
If you're looking for a single layer of light moist sponge with depth of flavour you can't go wrong with this recipe. I tend to use Green & Blacks' organic cocoa powder (dutched) for best results. If you're watching your waistline but have a sweet tooth, this is quite a tasty little number which won't massively compromise your diet.
