Waiting time 5m


For 4 Person(s)

Ingredients for the muffins

  • 200 g all-purpose flour
  • 100 ml vegetable oil (I used sunflower oil)
  • 150 ml sparkling water
  • 120 g brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

Ingredients for the glaze

  • 50 g dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds or chopped almonds or chopped walnuts

Rich and dense cocoa muffins with sparkling water Directions

  1. Sift flour, baking powder, cocoa and sugar into a bowl. Set aside.

  2. In a second bowl mix eggs, oil and water.

  3. Pour the egg mix into the flour mix and stir just to combine. Don’t overwork the batter.

  4. Place cupcake liners in a muffin pan. Fill each muffin well about three-quarters full. Bake in a preheated static oven at 180 °C for about 20 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
  5. Set the pan on a wire rack and let your chocolate muffins cool down in the pan for 5 minutes before taking them out. Melt chocolate with butter and decorate the muffins with a teaspoon of the glaze and with some sesame seeds, chopped almonds or chopped walnuts.

    lot of love. B.
