Easter Egg Surprise muffins

Create a variant


15 portion(s)

  • 100 g Dark cooking chocolate, (or any choc...especially at Easter)
  • 240 g sugar, (I use dark brown sugar)
  • 380 g plain flour OR self raising flour, (if using SR flour do not add baking powder)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger, (optional)
  • half teaspoon ground nutmeg, (optional)
  • 425 g milk (any type), I used almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 15 very small Easter Eggs, (can be solid choc, or filled with peppermint/caramel)
  • 15 muffin cups
  • 100 g Butter

Recipe's preparation

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180deg C.

    lightly grease/spray silicone cups

  2. Batter mixture
  3. Weigh cooking chocolate into TM bowl and grate for 8 seconds on speed 8 (I use any chocolate, especially at Easter).

  4. Add sugar to TM bowl, then all dry ingredients ...Flour, baking power (if using) and spices.  Mix together on speed 5 for 5 seconds.

  5. Weigh butter into TM bowl and blend with dry ingredients until crumb-like (about 5 seconds on speed 6).

  6. Scrape sides down with spatular.  Then add milk and egg.  Blend for 15 seconds on speed 7

  7. Spoon mixture into muffin cups until HALF full.  Gently stand an Easter Egg in the batter (do not push to the bottom or it may burn) ...spoon remaining batter over top of Easter Egg until the egg is hidden.

  8. Baking
  9. Bake for 20mins in oven set at 180deg C.  Cake should pull away from sides of muffin cups and be spongy when done.

    Awesome! Great for kids and the spices make them great for adults too. I halved the recipe and still had enough for 8 muffins. I also halved the sugar.

  • I made these after making

    I made these after making Coconut Ice-Cream dream (see my recipe ... http://www.recipecommunity.com.au/recipes/coconut-ice-cream-dream/77240).  I used the 3 egg whites remaining from the ice-cream recipe and reduced the milk in this recipe to only 250g (to compensate)....worked a dream!
