A dozen of these chocolate muffins is gone very quickly at our house, everyone loves them. One bite into the dark ball reveals the surprise: a white vanilla cream cheese filling.
- 1.5 cups flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 4 tbsp. dutch processed cacao powder
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1.5 cups buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
For the filling:
- 1/2 cup cream cheese
- vanilla flavouring
- 1.5 tbsp. sugar
Prepare the batter for the muffins.
Line the muffins pan with baking cups and fill the bottom of each cup with two tablespoons of the batter. Add one heaped teaspoon of the filling and top with batter.
Bake at 180˚C for 20-25 min.
After the muffins had cooled off a bit, I poured chocolate glaze over top and added some sprinkles for decoration.
I would like to try some variations of this recipe like adding shredded coconuts to the filling or using a different flavouring or even preparing a white batter and adding a filling with cream cheese and jam. What are your ideas?
