Her Chocolate Muffin

Apparently, she loves to bake. She helped me whenever i did my baking project..  muffins, cakes, or even cookies..

So far she already knew how to crack the eggs and few quite simple tasks which i can pass to her like mixing, stirring, garnishing or sometimes measuring the ingredients.

Baking with kids were always been fun, besides the main obstacle, cleaning after baking which is usually double  the mess!! Yup..Double or sometimes its may reach up to TRIPLE than ordinary mess..! Splashed of flour and sugar here and there, be it on the table or even floor, sugary batter on her hair and face even legs, messy dress.. and don't even start about the amount of wastages IF she accidently spilled those ingredients over and over again.

But.. its really worth it every cent and sweat when the dish is ready and seiing her proud face showing everybody in the house on her "bakes" well done.

Here is very easy to follow recipe from Nigella Lawson i got from Food

This is my first time and am glad trying this recipe. The ingredients were very simple but taste wise, yumms.

Chocolate chocolate-chips Muffin 
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons best quality cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, plus 1/4 cup for sprinkling
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Special equipment: Muffin tin with paper muffin cases

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, sugar, and 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips into a large bowl. Pour all the liquid ingredients into a measuring jug. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, remembering that a lumpy batter makes the best muffins. Spoon into the prepared muffin cases. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips on top and then bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are dark, risen and springy

So  far, i had tried a few recipes of chocolates muffins, but this recipe was definitely a keeper. Its suitable for the kids DIY too, hence of the simple ingredients and measured by using cups only.

The pre-parations

The little wannabe chef in action. She did all the mixing and stirring.


 Don't ask why the almonds were not equally spread on each muffin.. I'm sure she didn't had any good explaination about it.

Look at the melting chocolate chips. Yummeh!

The satisfied little girl after bath.
 Well, Of course she was sent straight away to the shower soon after that. Pheww.
