My DH loves choc muffins, so being the good wife that I am...... I decided I'd surprise him with some homemade ones instead of his normal shop bought ones. Now, I have made this recipe before and it's easy. Ok, so I whip up this batch of 12 and pop them in my new oven, set the timer and turn around to start cleaning up. I spotted the microwave and thought *****!!! , opened it up and there inside was the melted butter that should have been added to the muffins. Quick as a flash I got the tray out of the oven, it wasn't very hot!!! then spooned the mixture out of the paper cases into my mixing bowl, added the butter and blasted it with my mixer on full power. Then arranged new paper cases in the muffin pan and spooned the mixture back in. Into the oven once more they went..... timer set again. Time to clear up the mess, and oh it was a mess ... chocolate mix everywhere. I hung around the oven with my fingers crossed............ after 20 mins I stuck a skewer in one and DONE, out the oven and onto a rack to cool. They looked good!
And they tasted GREAT! The recipe is out of this book my son bought me for my birthday. http://hummingbirdbakery.com/cookbooks/the-hummingbird-bakery-cookbook/
Being pleased with my success in the light of a disaster I decided to make my favourite cake, Lemon Drizzle. I did concentrate more this time and didn't have any mishaps. If you would like my recipe for this cake just leave a comment and I'll get it to you.
Yummy.... it won't last long! Now I'm back to stitching.....
