Chocolate glazed muffins with rum flavoring.
In a large bowl using a mixer with whisk attachment, whisk egg whites until thickened. Add yolks and sugar, mix them well with a mixer. Chop butter into pieces and add it to the mixture. Mix to combine.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl. Add them little by little into the liquid, mixing with a spoon or spatula as you go. Do not over-mix. Add 4 drops rum flavoring and mix.
Preheat oven to 170 C. Put paper liners into two 12-count cupcake tins (recipe makes 16-18). Evenly spoon the batter into your muffin molds, but make sure you don’t fill them up! Fill each about halfway full.
Bake them for 30 minutes. Check if they are done by poking a couple with a toothpick. The toothpick will come out clean if they are done. Take them out of the oven, set the pan on a cooling rack and let them cool.
Start preparing the chocolate glaze. Melt chocolate in a bain marie (double boiler) or boil an inch of water in a large pot and set a heat-proof bowl over the top of it so that chocolate melts. Spread chocolate on muffins with a spoon. Top them with colorful sprinkles.
Let them cool in the refrigerator at least an hour.
- Recipe makes 16-18 muffins depending on the size of your molds.
- You can keep these in the refrigerator at least for 3 days.
These beauties are nutrient-dense, full of healthy fats, protein and antioxidants. And not to mention, with staying power to keep you fueled well until lunchtime. Be sure you don’t skip the cinnamon in these muffins. Not only does cinnamon have several wonderful health-related effects on the body, but it is magic when paired with blueberries.
I will admit that I adore traditional banana nut bread, but I always feel as though there is something missing. In this recipe, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to provide a warmth and depth of flavor that cannot be achieved any other way. For those of you who say, “I do not like bananas,” you should still give this recipe a try. My husband said that it reminded him of carrot cake!
