Dark Chocolate & Ginger Muffins // Lucyy Bakes

As well as the endless batches of the Rhubarb Crumble Muffins I shared last week, I've also made one too many batches of my Dark Chocolate & Ginger Muffins. My baking hasn't been quite the 'success' as I'd like it to be recently. The first three batches looked questionable though thankfully the warming kick of ginger and rich chocolate stuck around making them all edible. Here my small but perfectly acceptable Ginger Muffins are balanced on my new Dassie  Mini Oak Cheese Board and Dassie Chevron Enamel Mug, housing a much needed Nutella hot chocolate - complete with generous helping of squirty cream. It's still far too hot in the South West for autumn-winter knits, I'm wishing away days until I can pull them all out and curl up with my hot chocolate, muffins and restart the Gilmore Girls. Nobody does Autumn-Winter better than the Gilmores and Stars Hollow.

6 tablespoons Sunflower Oil
225g Plain Flour
55g Cocoa Powder
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1 tablespoon Ground Ginger
Pinch of Salt
115g Soft Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons of diced Ginger in Syrup
100g Dark Chocolate (melted)
2 Eggs
220ml Milk

Recipe for Dark Chocolate & Ginger Muffins
1. Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan assisted or GM 6 & line tray with 12 cases
2. Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder, ground ginger and salt into a large bowl

If you fancy giving my *second favourite* muffins a go I'd love to see the final result. I'm about to pour a second Nutella Hot Chocolate into my Enamel mug and scan through recipe books for my next Lucyy Bakes. Disclaimer: press sample, for review consideration only, no payment received. see disclaimer page for more.
