Eggless Chocolate & Nuts Muffins
This is no ordinary muffin. It is a muffin that reminds you of sunny days and weekends when you can sleep late. You wake up to coffee brewing in the kitchen and you get muffins fresh out of the oven for a scrumptious breakfast. Filled with chocolate and nuts, but not too sweet, this muffin is a treat. I bought a muffin pan this summer I have been wanting to try it out ever since. And it did not disappoint me.
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup chocolate - I used bittersweet cocoa
1/2 cup almonds, walnuts & raisins (chopped)
1 1/2 tspoon baking soda
1 tspoon vanilla extract
2 tbspoon butter
1 tbspoon heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda (update) nuts, raisins and chocolate. Add the butter and heavy cream.
Mix the vanilla extract in the milk (update), then add the milk and whisk till it all mixes together.
Heat the oven to 350F.
Put the batter in the muffin pan covering about 1/2 of the cup.
Bake for 18-20 min till they turn golden brown and the toothpick comes out clean.
Cool and serve with coffee, tea or orange juice.
