Of Flavours & Tastes…

Double Dark Chocolate-Cinnamon Muffins !

The very minute I’ve seen Aipi’s Double Chocolate Cappuccino Muffins,I decided to make it for my choco-savvy daughter.For I am not into chocolates and chocolate related products,it’s still my baby steps here when it comes to choco-based recipes.This learning process is quite fascinating when I see the content smiles of my little one.Many thanks to Aipi for the recipe and the inspiration.

As on recipe,I took the freedom to omit the coffee flavour and instead opted for cinnamon.I am in love with this particular spice.And it has come out really well for me.Check it out !

Makes 6 Muffins


3/4 cup wheat flour
1.5 tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp olive oil
few drops of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 tsp cinnamon powder
2 tsp milk to melt the chocolate chips
handful of chocolate chips to sprinkle


Preheat the oven to 180 degree.Prepare the muffin tray and arrange the paper cups.Melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips adding 2 tsp milk.This can be done with double boiler method or microwave.This is a tricky process.Let it cool.Now bring all the dry ingredients into one bowl and sift well.In another large bowl combine all the wet ingredients and beat with a hand mixer till all is mixed well.Add the melted chocolate and mix it well.Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix well till all is well merged and thick.Now pour this to cups till 3/4 size.Sprinkle  chocolate chips on top.Bake for 8-10 minutes (depends on your microwave power).You may check in between.

*Sending this Muffins to Priya & Aipi’s Bookmarked Recipes Event falls on every tuesday.
