Chocolate Button Muffins


Stormy skies

These should really be called ‘very grumpy chocolate muffins’ – I made them in something of a strop as my Ocado order has had to be cancelled tonight. They were going to be quite different but I ended up needing to buy supplies from the corner shop so they’re a celebration of Dairy Milk rather than the grown-up, sophisticated, orange and dark chocolate gourmet treats I had planned – oh well. They seem to have turned out reasonably well…

Triple Chocolate Muffins


Mmm, chocolate. And purpleness.

Makes 12 muffins


Chopped chocolate

Chopped chocolate

  • 200 grams plain flour
  • 25 grams cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 115 grams golden caster sugar
  • 200g bar of Dairy Milk chocolate, chopped into pieces
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 100 ml sunflower oil
  • 225 ml milk
  • 36 chocolate buttons

  1. Preheat the oven to 200oc/400of/Gas Mark 6. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with double muffin paper cases.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the sugar and the chopped up chocolate.
  3. Place the eggs and oil in a separate bowl and whisk until frothy, then gradually whisk in the milk. Stir into the dry ingredients until just blended.
  4. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases, filling each three-quarters full.
  5. Stud the mixture with 3 buttons per case. These will melt and form an extra chocolate-y layer on the top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, then remove the muffins and cool on a wire rack.
It's bring your muffin to work day!
