Chocolate and marzipan muffins

The chocolate and marzipan muffins recipe comes from The Vegan Forum website. Those are first egg free muffins I ever baked. They were tasty, very chocolaty with pieces of marzipan, but a little bit dry. I like them with a glass of milk although vegans would not be particularly happy about that.

Ingredients for 6 -8 muffins:
  • 130g marzipan
  • 50g dark chocolate chips or chocolate
  • 175g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 70g sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 35g cocoa powder
  • 160 ml cold water
  • 30 ml canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • some almond flakes to sprinkle
First dice the marzipan into smaller cubes. If you don't have chocolate chip dice the chocolate into smaller pieces. set them aside.

Preheat the oven to 175 C. Line muffin tin with paper cases. 

Into big bowl sift the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cocoa powder and whisk them together.
In measuring jug pour the cold water, add oil and vanilla stir together and pour into dry ingredients mixture. 
Combine all ingredients together. Do not over stir the batter. At last but not at least gently fold in prepared earlier marzipan and chocolate pieces. 
Spoon the batter into muffin cases, about 3/4 full. Sprinkle top of each muffin with the almond flakes. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until well risen.
Leave to cool in the baking tin for a few minutes than transfer to the wire rack. enjoy !
