Homemade Chocolate Muffins / Brownies

Making homemade chocolate muffins / brownies, a quick and easy baking project for beginners.

You’ll need:

  • 75g milk chocolate
  • 75g 70% dark chocolate
  • 100g sugar
  • 1tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 110g butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 80g plain white flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • icing sugar for decoration

What to do:

  1. Melt the chocolate and the butter in a hot-water bath.
  2. Add the sugar and vanilla sugar, mix and let it cool a little.
  3. Add the flour, eggs and salt and mix it to a smooth batter.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180˚-200˚C.
  5. Using a spoon, fill the batter into some muffin cases and bake for about 15 minutes.
  6. Let them cool.

Decorating: (This is optional, you can also leave the muffins as they are).

Method 1:

Spoon some icing sugar into a fine-meshed tea-strainer and shake it over the muffins, so the sugar drifts out and settles on the muffins like snow.

Method 2: (creating heart shapes)

  1. Same as in Method 1, spoon some icing sugar into a tea-strainer.
  2. Cut out a square of parchment paper, large enough to cover a muffin. Fold the square in half, and using kitchen scissors, cut out half a heart along the folded line, so once you unfold the square, a complete heart appears. Keep both the heart and the square with the heart-hole.
  3. Stick a toothpick through the middle of the heart and 4 toothpicks into the square with the heart-shaped hole. These will hold the templates in place.
  4. Stick the template of you choice into the muffin, and shake the tea-strainer with the icing sugar over them.
  5. Carefully remove the template. Depending on which template you used, each muffin will either have a white or a brown heart on top.
