Valentines Double Chocolate Muffins

I know its late in the day but here are the muffins I whipped up today for Hubby and Lowen (the pink sprinkles were for Lowen of course!!). They were gorgeous and chocolately. The original recipe came from Easy Cook magazine.

150ml Natural Yogurt
3 eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
175g Melted Butter
175g Golden Caster Sugar
140g Self Raising Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp Cocoa powder
100g Dark Chocolate
140g Icing sugar
140g Butter

Step 1: Preheat oven to 190c and line a 12 hold muffin tin with paper cases
Step 2: Mix together yogurt, eggs and vanilla extract in a jug
Step 3: In another bowl mix together the dry ingredients then pour in yogurt mix and melted butter and mix to combine (do not overmix). Fill the muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes.
Step 4: Melt the chocolate for the icing in the microwave and leave to cool
Step 5: Beat the icing sugar and butter together (I used my kitchen aid) then pour in cooled chocolate.
Step 6: Ice the muffins and throw on some sprinkles if you wish


  1. Those are so pretty with the pink sugar on top!

  2. Beth, these are adorable! I love the pink sprinkles against that lush chocolate.


  3. they look loevly and I just adore the sprinkles!

  4. I at first wondered if these were sea salt cupcakes. I guess my mind is elsewhere since I made sea salt brownies.The pink chrystalized sugar makes these perfect!!

  5. These cupcakes look great, I have a pot of natural yogurt lurking in the fridge this would be the perfect use for it.

  6. Oh, no! I could just chomp down one of these right now, but I can't. Okay, pass the milk shake. :-)

  7. They look gorgeous Beth and the perfect chocolate treat for Valentines. I like how tall they are, my muffins always seem to sink a bit.

  8. They look really yummy!

    I think I have those sprinkles too, mine are from the barbie range!!

  9. They look very pretty indeed. I love this sort of cupcake!

  10. These look really pretty, and I'm sure they were great. I love cake recipes that use yogurt.

  11. Double chocolate equals double yum!

  12. perfect valentine's day treat

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
