The delicious brownie muffins. An easy recipe that I enjoy making with our Grandchildren…and they get to take some home.
- 4 oz chocolate – bittersweet or bittersweet, coarsely chopped
- ⅓ cup + 1 tb flour
- Pinch of Salt
- 2 eggs – large
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ½cup (1 stick) butter – cut in small pieces or cubed
- ⅓ cup cocoa powder – unsweetened
- ¾ sugar
- Preheat oven to 350º.
- Line muffin tin with paper liners.
- In a medium heatproof bowl, place chocolate (I used chocolate chips this time) and butter. Heat mixture in the microwave on low, stirring every 20 seconds until totally melted.
- In a small bowl sift flour, cocoa and salt and set aside.
- Using a mixer with the whisk attachment, whisk eggs and sugar on low speed to mix and then on high speed until thick and pale, about 3 or 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low and very slowly add in the vanilla and then the chocolate mixture. Scrape down sides a few times.
- Stop the mixer and slowly (so you don’t get a flour shower) add the flour mixture and slowly fold in, again scraping down the sides. Mix just until all combined and try not to over mix.
- Divide the batter in the liners in your muffin tin, filling each ¾ full. Bake 13-16 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Then allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
NOTE: since I was baking these muffins with my two young granddaughters, extra chocolate chips were added, (because they felt more were needed) to the mix just before filling the muffin liners. Never can have too much chocolate!!
