In the beginning, the Lord created chocolate, and he saw that it was good. Then he seperated the light from the dark, and it was better. 

Oh, divine brownies. Any season, any occassion or any day, one form of cake that will never get old is Brownies. A single square chunk of this delicious cake is enough to uplift your tastebuds. 
Plain brownies, brownies with icecream or sizzling brownie, you will relish it in any form and crave for more. 
I have shared walnut brownie recipe before and today I will share another dense chocolate brownie recipe. 
This Brownie recipe creates fudgy, dense and extremely rich brownies.

"Dense Chocolate Muffins - Pure Indulgence "

Forget Love -- I'll rather fall for Chocolate !!!!

I am back with a little more of choco indulgence. Earlier in my blog I have already shared two chocolate muffin recipe ( with and without eggs), but as my love for chocolate is neverending,so here I am with another beautiful recipe.
I created these muffins as an experiment with dark and white chocolates. I had these two bars lying in my fridge craving to get converted in some wonderful dessert. I used them both with some staple muffin ingredients and Voila ! what came out was the most indulgent and magical muffins that I had ever eaten.
This recipe creates completely dense, rich and chocolate indulgent muffins. Pair them up with a cup of coffee and you will not want to talk to see anything else.
You can store them in air tight container for upto a week after refrigeration.
Enjoy this recipe and a little kick of that chocolate ;)

"Dense Chocolate Muffins - Pure Indulgence "

Ingredients :

100 gms dark chocolate
100 gms sugar
50 gms butter
250 ml milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
300 gms flour
1 tbsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
150 gms white chocolate

  • Soften the dark chocolate by keeping it at room temperature for few hours. Once soft, break and whip it in a bowl to form a creamy texture ( If not then warm it in microwave for 10 secs and then whip)
  • Sieve flour, baking powder and salt in a big bowl. 
  • In another bowl whisk butter, sugar and eggs till light and fluffy. Add this to the flour mixture. Mix well
  • Add milk, vanilla essence and mix it properly to form a smooth pouring batter.
  • Now add the dark chocolate liquid and whisk for few minutes. 
  • Chop the white chocolate in small fine pieces and add it to the batter. Give it a slight stir to avoid breaking the white chocolate. 
  • Line the muffin cups or tray with baking or parchment paper. Fill the cups with the muffin batter till 3/4th quantity. 
  • Bake in pre heated oven at 180*C for 30-35 mins till all the muffins are well risen and baked. The top part will be a little broken once they are fully done. 
  • Let them cool on a wire rack. Unmould and serve. 
Note : You can use nuts like almonds and walnuts in these muffins. You can also drizzle some white chocolate shards on top before baking. You can use either chocolate compound or any other type of chocolate for this recipe.
