A delicious chocolate recipe with these Soft chocolate muffins ! These muffins are really easy to make, very soft, with a good cocoa taste ...
I love using cocoa in baking, and this recipe is no exception! But don't worry, I'm not the only one who's crazy about chocolate?
These muffins are particularly soft (you'll see when you make the recipe), that's what I really like here. It is an ideal recipe for dessert, snack (and I would even say breakfast for the most greedy).
These chocolate muffins are very light on the palate and well cocoa. They don't leave a "dry" impression, because that's really the downside of muffins in general ...
How to make chocolate muffins?
We simply prepare a muffin batter which is similar to the one I usually make for my chocolate cakes, when I want a very soft finish. To make this dough, mix the dry ingredients on one side, the liquid ingredients on the other side. Then gradually pour the liquid ingredients into the other container to incorporate them.
The secret to the softness of these muffins is adding liquid (hot water and milk), a good quantity of baking powder and baking soda and cooking in a hot oven. This is how we get rounded muffins.
For even more gluttony, I added chocolate chips to the dough, it's optional but it's so good!
The dough is then poured into paper boxes arranged in a muffin tin. If you don't have any boxes available, you can do as I did (in my photos) and cut out squares of baking paper that you put in your muffin tin.
Possible variations for this recipe
You can completely adapt the amount of cocoa bitter to your liking. While decreasing the bitter cocoa, don't forget to also decrease the amount of sugar. The two together ensure the balance of the recipe.
Le buttermilk (or ribot milk) is strongly recommended to optimize the taste of muffins. At the bottom of the recipe, I give you the trick to make it at home.
In addition to chocolate chips, you can add hazelnuts or walnuts, seeds. In short, what makes you happy!
