Chocolate chip and coffee muffins

Today I would like to present my own recipe for chocolate chip and coffee muffins. I am particularly happy about this one as muffins taste exactly as I like them. They are soft and fluffy with crunchy tops. Really nice :)

Ingredients for 6-8 muffins:
  • 95g flour
  • 40g corn flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp ground coffee
  • 1 egg
  • 70g icing sugar
  • 70g butter or margarine
  • 1 tsp espresso brewed in 50 ml hot water
  • 25 ml milk
  • 3 tbsp dark chocolate chip + some for melting

Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.
In a big bowl sift the flours, baking powder, soda, salt and coffee and whisk them together. In a measuring jug pour the espresso coffee with hot water. Pour the coffee into dry ingredients mixture. Add the milk and egg. Combine all ingredients together. Then gently fold in chocolate chips. 
Spoon the batter into paper cases about 3/4 full. Those muffins rise nicely. Bake them for 15-20 minutes until toothpick picked in the middle comes out clean. When baked leave them for a few minutes in the baking tin. Then transfer to the wire rack to cool down completely.
Melt some dark chocolate and pour over each muffin top.
