Oat muffins with sour cherries covered with chocolate

This time I baked oat muffins, slightly changing recipe from this website. I called them oat muffins as they contain porridge oats. Those muffins were moisture, sweet and sour at the same time. 

Ingredients for 15 muffins:
  • 200g flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 60g porridge oats
  • 150g powder/icing sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 220g drained pitted sour cherries + few for decoration
  • 2 egg whites
  • 200g buttermilk
  • 150g melted butter
Heat up the oven to 180C. Line muffin tin with muffin cases.

In a big bowl put dry ingredients : the flour, baking powder, porridge oats, sugar, cinnamon and combine them together.
Melt the butter, add buttermilk, egg whites, vanilla and whisk them together. Pour this mixture into dry ingredients. Combine all ingredients. Fold in the cherries. Spoon into paper cases 3/4 full. Bake for 20-25 min. Check with tooth pick if batter is baked in the middle. Cool them down on wire rack.

For a chocolate cover:
  • 50 ml milk.
  • 50 ml cream
  • 100g dark chocolate
Put cream and milk into sause pan and bring it to boil. Add chopped chocolate and stir as long as all chocolate melts down. You will receive thick, chocolaty cream called ganache. With a spoon pour gently ganache over the top of each muffin and place the cherry in the middle.

Enjoy !
