Sunday Afternoon Baking: {Chocolate Muffins}

A typical situation that I find myself in too often: Sunday, 16:00, craving sweets or some homemade baked goods. A glance into the fridge and kitchen cupboards doesn't help much - there are simply too many ingredients missing to bake something from a cookbook. Going to a shop? And get dressed? Nah..

So, the easiest solution is to browse the web for improvised recipes that help satisfy the urgent sweet tooth. I have found one that came closest to what I had on hand and altered it a little. Let me tell ya, these chocolate muffins tasted delicious! Fluffy, moist and oh so chocolaty! Here's the super easy recipe for you, enjoy!

P.S. The winners of the Kusmi Tea giveaway are Raphi, Carina, Nadine, Birgit and Alex. You have already been contacted and I need all your addresses asap! Congratulations! 


2 eggs
100g sugar
about 8 tblsp. shredded hazelnuts
80ml oil
100ml milk
7 tblsp. flour
2 tblsp. (pure) cocoa powder
chocolate or nutella (amount depends on how sweet you like it)
-> I used about 200g for the sponge and another 300g as topping

1.) Preheat oven at 180°C and prepare baking tray.
2.) Beat eggs and sugar + vanilla sugar until creamy, then add all dry ingredients as well as milk and oil. Stir well.
3.) Melt the chocolate and add it to the mixture.
4.) Fill the dough in the muffin trays and bake for about 20 min.
5.) For an extra strong chocolate flavour melt more chocolate and completely cover the muffins.
Bon appetit!
