Almond and chocolate muffins

Looking around for a simple and nice muffin, I arrived to read a recipe book for children. This book looks more like a calendar and I received it from my mother to cook for my daughter. Although it has many great recipes inside I do not know why, but it is the first time to try something from it. And the result was far from being disappointing. This muffin recipe is actually amazing: it is simple to make, it has a crumbly texture due to the ground almond and is very flavored. My daughter in fact loved it even more than me and this for me is a very good indicator that the recipe worth to be made again.

  • 150g flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g sugar
  • 150g butter
  • 60g milk chocolate (grated)

  1. Preheat the oven at 180ÂșC.
  2.  Beat the eggs with sugar.
  3. Add flour, almond, salt, vanilla sugar and mix.
  4. Add slowly the butter and mix.
  5. Add the chocolate and mix.
  6. Pour the composition into muffin molds by filling them 2/3. Decorate them with sliced almonds if you like.
  7. Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Let them cool on a rack.

Joanna, I put the butter after heating it 20 seconds in the microwave. The texture was just soft and it didn't arrive to be liquid.
