Chocolate Chips Muffins With Cranberries

11 Jun

Yesterday i thought that i needed something sweet to have with my morning coffee… since the pancakes are consumed… small muffins would be perfect. I didn’t follow any recipe… i just whisked what i have together, some leftover chocolate chips and dried cranberries i bought from Istanbul. Et voilà!

At the last minute, after i poured the batter in the muffins tray, I inserted 4 whole cherries with their petioles in 4 muffins just to see how it’s gonna taste. I wanted to add some lemon zest because it gives an extra flavor, i searched the fridge for one but didn’t find any.

But what i did not tell you yet is that the combination of cherry and chocolate is great. I enjoyed alot eating the muffin with the cherry inside, one bite with a bit of cherry and some traces of chocolate… yummiiiii… This I did not expect….. I will definitely do it again. Bake something that has cherry and chocolate. It kind of reminded me of black forest cake…

Go for the recipe…

Here’s the recipe

-4 eggs

-1 cup sugar

-2 cups flour

-1 tsp baking powder

-1 tsp vanilla extract

-pinch of salt

-half cup full-fat milk

-2 tbsp vegetable oil

-100g chocolate chips

-half a cup dried cranberries

Preheat the oven to 200C. Whisk the eggs, salt, vanilla, sugar until light and smooth. Combine the baking powder with the flour and then fold them in the egg mixture. When combined, add the milk and oil and mix to combine. Then stir in the chocolate chips and dried cranberries.

Pour the batter in the muffins tray and bake about 18-20 minutes until the muffins are golden brown.

Enjoy. Bon Appétit.

    You were nearly able to match the inside of the muffin with the color of your nails :). I didn’t’ eat the one you gave me yet however the pictures gave me the thrill to go and have a bite now.

    There’s no coffee here to match up the couple but it’s not a problem for me I’ll have it alone.

    As Johnnie Walker once said “Keep on Walking”, but in this world I’d say to you mimi “Keep on Baking” :).
