Chocolate and ginger muffins

Those muffins were really delicious, moist, chocolaty with hint of ginger. I baked them in large muffin cups so I was not stress that I ate more then one at a time :). Chocolate and ginger muffins recipe, slightly changed by myself, comes form 'Easy muffins' cookbook.

Ingredients for 6 big or 12 standard size muffins:
  • 225g flour
  • 55g cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • pinch of salt
  • 50g chocolate chips
  • 115g dark muscovado sugar
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 eggs
  • 225 ml milk
  • 85g melted butter
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line with paper cases or grease muffin tin.

Melt the butter and set aside to cool it down.

Sift the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, salt, ground ginger and sugar into a big bowl and whisk together. Then stir in the chocolate chips.

In separate bowl whisk the eggs whit fork and stir in the minced ginger.

Into the dry ingredients bowl pour the egg mixture, milk and melted butter. Combine all ingredients. Do not over - stir them. 
Spoon the batter into baking cups. Bake for 20 minutes until well risen and baked in the middle. Insert the  toothpick into the cake to check if it comes out clean. Leave the muffins into baking tins for a while then transfer them to wire rack to cool down a little bit.

Those muffins are tasty when warm and cooled down. Enjoy !
