Chloe Cooks | Easter surprise chocolate muffins

Chloe Cooks | Easter surprise chocolate muffins

How is it easter already? I’ve only just managed to pack all the tinsel back in its box and finish off the quality street. With the season of chocolate eggs now upon us I thought it only right to honour this with my own chocolate based recipe. Been as it seems the only thing I can bake muffins it is again however these aren’t just any old muffins, these are surprise muffins!

Now I hear you all say, “Chloe, what is it that makes these surprise chocolate muffins”, well I shall tell you. With being as nutty about Nutella (couldn’t resist) as I am I couldn’t no include it as a nice gooey surprise when you bite into!

Festive Favourite 4 – Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Festive Favourite 4 – Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

After the success of my first batch I couldn’t help but churn out another batch but this time with a little bit of a festive twist. 

When I think if christmas food and cooking the first thing that springs to mind for me is all the festive spices which go into making all the mince pies, christmas puddings and cake. 

I thought i’d stay simple and stick to muffins with a little christmas kick! (unfortunately not of the alcoholic variety)

3 mugs of self raising flour 

1 mug of brown or white sugar 

2 eggs 

1 1/2 mugs of milk 

3/4 mug of vegetable oil 

2 apples (one in the mixture one for decoration) 

paper cases and muffin tin 

Recipe 

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees fan oven/200 degrees/ Gas mark 6 
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the ‘wet ones’. 
  3. Finely chop up the apple and add to the mixture 
  4. Spoon all the mixture into individual muffin cases and place pieces of sliced apple on the top and sprinkle with sugar

Again instead of making the full 24 which this recipe makes I halved it to make 12 which thinking recipes never quite make what they intend to so surprisingly I actually did manage to come out with 12. 

I decided to use a normal apple instead of a cooking apple for these with wanting the chunks of apple to still remain whole instead of mush down into the cake its self.

Extra top tips for these:  

  • Fill the cases quite full of the cake mixture, they do rise but not quite as much as i thought so you don’t have to leave too much of the case for rising room
  • For the apple slices for the top, roll them in sugar before placing them on top for an extra sweet flavour.
