Cocoa Muffins

Fresh, moist and mouth watering muffins are the best mates to your morning tea or coffee. Milou and I baked these muffins as part of our weekly muffin therapy. Believe me, they taste as great as they look.

  • Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 125 ml milk  + 50 ml water
  • 8 tablespoons flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons chocolate extract
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Directions
    1. Preheat the oven to 185 °C and lightly grease 23/4-inch muffin cups (12 cups will do).
    2. In a large bowl, blend together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. 
    3. In a medium bowl, beat the egg, milk+water, butter and sugar until smooth. 
    4. Combine the two mixtures, blending until the dry ingredients are moistened.
    5. Fill the muffin cups about three-quarters full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. 
    6. Cool in the pan for 5 to 7 minutes and serve warm.
