Quick Mix Chocolate Muffins

Muffins are the best. They are like mini cakes and very easy to put together. Which was helpful the other night when I had to whip up two batches after a very busy day. Just throw all the ingredients in a bowl, mix until combined and into the muffin pan. Done. 

Quick-mix Chocolate Muffins
Recipe from

Melted butter, for greasing
200mls milk
125g butter, cubed
100g good-quality dark chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup cocoa powder, sifted
3 eggs, at room temperature, lightly whisked
2 cups self-raising flour
1 cup, lightly packed brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 180C. Brush a 12 medium muffin pans with the melted butter.
2. Place the milk, butter, chocolate and cocoa in a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until smooth.
3. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Add the eggs and use a fork to mix well.
4. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl and stir in the sugar. Add the cooled chocolate mixture and usa a large metal spoon to fold in until just combined. Do not overmix.
5. Spoon the mixture evenly into the greased muffin pans (I had leftover batter and made some mini muffins as well) and bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until just cooked when tested with a skewer. Stand in pans for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
