Luscious and easy on the eye too!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE MUFFINS:
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ½ cups Melted Butter (or Oil)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1  Egg
  • ½ cups Milk
  • 1 cup Plain Yoghurt
  • 1-½ cup Chocolate Chunks Or Chips (I Used A Mix Of Dark And Milk)
  • Raw/turbinado Sugar, For Sprinkling On Top, Optional
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 1 cup Cream Cheese, At Room Temperature
  • 7 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, At Room Temperature
  • ¼ cups Dark Chocolate (grated Finely)

Preparation

For the muffins:

1. Preheat oven to 180°C (355°F).
2. In a large bowl sift together flour, baking soda and baking powder. Add salt and sugar. Set aside.
3. In another large bowl whisk together oil, vanilla extract, egg, milk and yoghurt. Add the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
4. Add chocolate chunks to the batter and gently stir until just incorporated.
5. Pour batter into a well-greased 12-count standard size muffin pan.
6. Optional: Sprinkle a bit of raw/turbinado sugar over the top of each muffin (this will make the top nice and crunchy).
7. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked throughout. Remove from oven and let them sit in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
8. Once completely cooled pipe chocolate chip frosting (recipe below) on top of each muffin and serve immediately.

For the brown sugar and chocolate chip frosting:

1. In the bowl of your stand mixer or food processor add the cream cheese, brown sugar and butter. Mix/process until completely smooth.
2. Add the grated chocolate and gently stir through until it’s evenly distributed.
