My good friend Malika celebrates her 30th today. Down the pub later of course but I thought a little homemade treat would be in order. The girl has an incredible sweet-tooth; six sugars in a Café Nero coffee is not unusual. Chocolate is an obsession.

These chocolate muffins were not as sweet as I expected but are packed with dark, luxurious chocolate countering the fluffy interior beautifully. Minutes out of the oven, the half dozen are down to five already.

Based on a recipe by Delia (no nuts, mix making six large muffins, chocolate chunk added to the top so double the specified amount, increase cooking time).

Chocolate Muffins

    What a nice friend you are, Andrew:)
    And Cafe Nero coffee is soooo strong, that I always need to use double the amount of sugar there (or ask for a single-shot latte)

  2. Ash says:

    Oh, YUM! I have that recipe saved in my favourites at Delia, but I never considered making it in bigger cases. Now I have to try it.

  3. Andrew says:

    Wish I had made double the quantity so I could, selfishly, have more than 1!

    Oh, look at that chocolate on top of the muffins…to die for :D

    OMG, those look like indulgence personified. This might be a good time to mention that my birthday’s coming up this weekend… ;-) Great pic too!
