DIY: Muffins.

Ahh, this recipe is soo delicious, I must share it with you! :) First, I made the recipe for the normal muffin dough and then I divided the whole mass and added some other ingredients, because I wanted to make two different flavors.

Ingredients for the dough:
250g (UK = 8,8 ounces) of flour
2 heaped teaspoons of baking powder
2 heaped tablespoons of sugar
2 pinch of salt
1 huge egg
80 milliliter (UK = 2,8 fluid ounces) of neutral vegetable oil or liquid butter
200 milliliter (UK = 7 fluid ounces) of milk

Extra ingredients for variation 1:
2 apples
Grated or chopped nuts (e.g. hazelnuts or almonds)

Extra ingredients for variation 2:
Cocoa powder
Nutella or another chocolate cream

For decoration:
Plain chocolate
Chocolate crumbles
Colored sugar crumbles

First, preheat the oven to 392°F (200°C), then mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Next, use a second bowl to stir the egg, oil and milk together. 

Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients while you permanently stir up everything and do so until all ingredients are mixed and there are only some little clumps. 

Afterwards, divide the whole mass of dough and distribute it to two different bowls. To one part of the dough, add the chopped apples, cinnamon and nuts, to the other half of the dough add chocolate cream and cocoa powder and again mix everthing.

Then fill two third of the muffin tins with the dough and put them into the middle of the preheated oven for about 20 minutes.

After having taken the muffins out of the oven, let them cool down for a minimum of 5 minutes before you take them out of the tins. :) 

Finally, you can carefully melt the plain chocolate in a pot, pour a bit of it over the chocolate muffins and then decorate them with some crumbles. I love mine, they are so colorful and tasty. :)

Hope you have fun, let me know when you try out this recipe yourself. :)
