Chocolate Fudge Muffins

Choc Fudge Muffins

I've been busy spring cleaning the kitchen cupboards - a job I find very satisfying as I end up with lots of half opened jars and packets that I then have to incorporate into meals and baking - it gets my brain working anyway. These muffins were inspired by half opened packets of chocolate and sugars I found lurking at the back of the baking cupboard. They make great lunchbox treats and are super quick to make. If you haven't got any sour cream to hand just sub with some greek yogurt or creme fraiche.

  • 80g Dark Chocolate
  • 85g Butter
  • 2 TBSP Full Fat Milk
  • 200g Self Raising Flour
  • 1/2 TSP Bicarb
  • 85g Soft Light Brown Sugar
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 150ml Sour Cream
  • 1 TSP Vanilla Extract
  • Step 1: Preheat oven to 190c/170fan and line a 12 hole muffin tin with silicone cases. Melt the butter, milk and chocolate in the microwave, being careful not to burn it.
  • Step 2: Sieve together the flour, bicarb then mix through the sugars. In another bowl beat the egg, vanilla extract, and sour cream together. Combine the cooled chocolate mix and sour cream mix in with the dry ingredients. Fold in gently - do not overmix!
  • Step 3: Spoon into cases and bake for 20 minutes.
