Chocolate and hazelnut muffins

Recipe for these muffins comes from 'New Italian cuisine. Chocolate' cookbook. To bake them, and make them look slightly different than traditional muffins, I used my new square muffin tin. Those muffins were very chocolaty, chewy with ground hazelnuts and a little bit dry but good with coffee or tea. I think I do not have to remind that they were very easy to make.

Ingredients for 20 mini-muffins:
  • 100g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 100g ground hazelnuts
  • 175g dark chocolate
  • 1 egg
  • 150 ml milk
  • 75g sugar
  • 45 ml canola oil

Preheat the oven to 180C.  Grease muffin tin, mine was silicone so there was no need for geasing.

Sift the flour, baking powder, hazelnuts into a big bowl and whisk them together. Melt the chocolate in microwave. Whisk the chocolate with the sugar, oil, milk and egg as they turn into smooth mixture. Sift into the dry ingredients and combine them with the wet mixture. Spoon the batter into muffin tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes until toothpick inserted in the middle of muffin come out clean. Leave them for a 5 min in baking tin then cool them down on a plate. Enjoy !
