Ingredients for Easy Chocolate Muffins
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 ½ cup of buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking powder
5 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 ½ cup of all purpose flour
100g chocolate bar
½ cup of desiccated coconut
How to Prepare Easy Chocolate Muffins
Crack 3 eggs into a large bowl, add 1 cup of sugar and 1 ½ cup of buttermilk. Into another bowl, sift 1 teaspoon baking powder, 5 tablespoons cocoa powder and 1 ½ cup of flour. Mix the dried ingredients together and using a spatula, gently incorporate them into the large bowl.
After properly mixing, set aside and preheat oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, line 6 baking cups with baking papers and allow to sit in a baking tray. Fill the cups halfway with the chocolate batter to allow enough space for the muffins to rise while baking. Then, bake for about 20 to 30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when dipped into the muffins.
After baking, remove the muffins from the cups and allow them to cool in a plate. Cut 100g chocolate bar and put in a small dish. Place the dish into a microwave for 30 seconds so as to melt the chocolate. Allow the syrup to cool a bit then pour about 2- 3 tablespoons on each muffin. Also, garnish each muffin with 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut.
