Time is running away from me as usual, we have had a super weekend, lots of family time and I got to see my best friend to go for lunch and a bit of shopping, wonderful. I have baked three more Herman cakes this evening but still need to catch up on writing about the recipes I baked last week.
These Triple Chocolate Herman Muffins were super tasty and a nice and easy all-in-one mix, they seemed to dissapear before I could get a picture so you will have to use your imagination for these ones!
Triple Chocolate Herman Muffins
- 200g/8oz plain flour
- 25g/1oz cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 85g/3oz each of dark, milk and white chocolate, chopped into chunks (I used 100g of each as if you have ‘willing helpers’ like me some chunks will get eaten!)
- 1 egg
- 284ml carton of buttermilk
- 85/3oz vegetable oil
- 160g/6 1/2oz Portion of Herman (Half a Portion of Herman)
Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Line 12 holes of a muffin tin with paper cases.
In a large bowl combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and the chocolate chunks.
In another bowl combine all other ingredients and mix well until combined. Add this to the flour mix and stir gently until just combined, don’t over mix, the mixture should be fairly stiff.
Spoon into the cases then place in the centre of the oven and bake for 20 minutes until well risen. Leave in the tins for about 15 minutes then take out to cool on a wire rack.
There you have it, takes about 40 mins at most, the bit that takes the longest is the chopping up the chocolate which is bearable as you get to pinch bits as you are doing it.
I was inspired to try this recipe by Lorna-Ann Deans who commented on my blog and said she ‘LOVES chocolate’. If you have a favourite cake that you would like to see in a Herman version just let me know and I will give it a go for you and let you know how it turns out.
