Double Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Double Chocolate Cherry Muffins 1

What kind of muffin could I make with cherries? Chocolate ones!

These are my last creation, they are ready now and I know that in a few minutes some will be gone; yes, after a long day in school I know that somebody will appreciate them very much.

The decoration is only optional, but it’s so easy and pretty that I really recommend you to try.

You need

o    2 cup fresh cherries, washed and pitted

o    2 cups all-purpose flour

o    1/2 cups dark chocolate, chopped

o    2 tablespoon cacao

o    1/4 cup brown sugar

o    1/4 cup granulated sugar

o    2 teaspoons baking powder

o    1/4 teaspoon salt

o    3/4 cup milk 1/3 cup vegetable oil

o    1 egg

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F. Grease 20 muffins (6 cm/2.5 inches) cups, or line with paper liners. Tip: if you use silicon molds you don’t need to grease them
  2. In large bowl, combine flour, cacao, chocolate brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Stir in cherries.
  4. In small bowl, combine milk, oil, and egg until well blended.
  5. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients; stir just until moistened.
  6. Spoon batter (or better use an ice-cream scooper) into prepared muffin cups until almost full.
  7. Bake 18 to 20 minutes, or until muffins are through (tooth stick test).
  8. Cool down for at least 20 minutes.

Optional for decoration: dip cherries into melted chocolate and adjust on muffins.
