Milk Chocolate Chunk Muffins

Can't decide what to bake this weekend.  Was thinking of making apple pie since I've got apples and frozen pastry puffs.  Then, thought about making good old butter cake.  Then, thought of muffins with chocolate chunks in it.  And the muffins won!  I love to make muffins or cupcakes that you can't buy right off from a bakery.  I love the ones that are more complicated which gives you a wonderful surprise as you take your first bite and discover the wonderful filling in it.

This muffin has chunks of milk chocolate in it, just like it's name.  At my daughter's special request, I add on marshmallow on top.  That gives the muffin a special twist especially if eat it warm, the lightly burnt marshmallow gives a crunchy top.  Fantastico!

 See the slightly burnt marshmallow!


The hidden treasure - chunky milk chocolate ... oo laa laa..

All you need to make these wonderful surprises is....

400g plain flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
170g muscovado sugar
100g butter
185g milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
(Makes 11 large muffins)

Filling:  150g milk chocolate, rough chopped
Topping:  small marsmallows or big marshmallows cut into 2

1. Preheat oven to 180dC, prepare muffin tray with paper liners.
2. Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix together.
3. Melt the butter in a small bowl. In a medium bowl, beat together the milk, eggs and vanilla with a fork.
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and gently fold together with a large metal spoon until just moistened.
5. Gently fold in the milk chocolate chunk and spoon batter into the paper liners.   Put one or two marshmallows firmly on top of the batter. Bake for 20 mins or until muffins are done.
