This week we tried our hands at creating chocolate chunk muffins. The recipe that our muffins are based on is available here: https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1514634/chocolate-chunk-muffins

There isn’t all that much to say this week as we didn’t make any huge changes to the recipe. We used brown sugar instead of the caster that the recipe calls for because that’s what we had, but otherwise, we followed the recipe exactly.

I will, therefore, leave you with some pictures of the process.

The end result

The final product was reasonably successful, they taste pretty great. There are a couple of small issues that I’m sure we’ll resolve next time. Firstly, the chunks of chocolate are big, so the inside of the muffins is really just a huge mess of melted chocolate. Secondly, the finish is a bit glossy, like a scone. We don’t know why this is, because we followed the recipe correctly.


Less than average – We cook stuff

I have been succeeding at this thing we call life for about 45 minutes now. There will be some errors throughout the journey, but I'm sure it will be fun all the same. I fell over once....that was annoying.
