Spicy muffins


Spicy muffins with chocolate

I have four nephews who all like to cook and bake, and I like to think that it’s their aunt who is their inspiration! It’s so nice when they send pictures of things they made and that they give me a call to get some advice or discuss new things to be tried. This recipe I got from my oldest nephew about 10 years ago: “aunt, you have to try this one!”, and of course I did, and I’ve made them many times since. They have a delicious taste of spices, and of course you can skip the chocolate if you want (however, I never skip chocolate!). You can serve them with some berries if you like – it brings a little “edge” to it. Enjoy!

This recipe gives about 12 big muffins.


100 gr butter
150 gr sugar
115 gr brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 dl sour cream
5 tbsp. milk
250 gr plain flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. all spice
200 gr chocolate (I use 40%)

Whip butter and both sugars well together.

Mix eggs, sour cream and milk together and add it to the butter/sugar mix.

Mix all dry ingredients and sift into the batter and mix carefully.

Chop the chocolate and add in the end.

Pour batter into muffin cups and bake in pre-heated oven to 190 °C for 25-30 min in the middle of the oven.
