The Muffins

The Muffins

If you follow my FB fan page you know that last Sunday I was having a muffin day. Muffins remind me my stay in Nova Scotia (Canada) few years ago. I was staying at the most charming Canadian B&B ever: The Changing Tides. I have already told you the story here so no need to repeat it however the smell of the muffins is still floating in the air and it brings memories from Canada. Although Pam is a muffin champion for me and she was preparing blueberry muffins like no one else I would like share an easy recipe for chocolate muffins. You could bake your own muffins to celebrate Canada Day! Here it comes:


  •  Flour: 300 g
  • Butter: 150 g
  • Milk: 180 ml
  • 4 medium eggs
  • Baking powder powder: 6 g
  • Dark cocoa powder: 70 g
  • Salt: 1 g
  • Sugar: 300 g
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Bicarbonate: 2 g
  • Grated dark chocolate: 100 g


First: beat the softened butter with the sugar and the vanilla extract. When it is light and fluffy, add the eggs one at a time. Mix all the ingredients for a few minutes and then put it in a large bowl. Second: mix separately the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. When its a cohesive powder (dark brown) add it to the rest of mixture, alternating the addition of milk (room temperature). Finally add the grated dark chocolate. Lastly: placed the pastry inside a mold muffin and bake it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees, for 30 minutes.

I hereby certify that I baked the chocolate muffins using this very recipe. Successfully!

So, don’t think twice and celebrate the Canada Day! And send your photos!
