the weather in Switzerland was – I really tried to say it in a nice way, but let’s just be honest – it was crap! it’s already the end of May and we didn’t really have a proper sunny and warm day for the last couple of weeks. and what do you do when it pours outside? you bake!
if you follow me for a while you will know that I really like chocolate! therefore I’m always up for a new recipe that includes my fave baking ingredient. and a while ago Dr. Oetker kindly sent me a goodie bag with some of their newest treats – including some yummie white chocolate chunks.
as a new mom my spare time is quite limited – hence I wanted to bake something quick but no less delicious. so I did some recipe testing and finally found the perfect mixture of a soft, chewy and chocolaty muffin – and who doesn’t love a chocolate chunk muffin?
what you need:
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
300g dark chocolate
180g sour cream
100g white chocolate chunks
what to do:
prepare a muffin tin with 12 paper cups. mix together flour, baking powder and salt and set side. whisk soft butter with sugar for about two minutes until soft and fluffy. add in the eggs one at a time. melt your dark chocolate (I always just pour hot water over it, leave it for 3-4 minutes and then drain the water), let it cool for a bit and add it to your butter/sugar mixture. add in the flour mixture – I did it in three smaller portions. when you’ve got a nice and smooth batter, add in the sour cream with a spatula followed by the chocolate chunks. distribute the batter in the prepared baking tin and bake them for about 22 minutes at 190°C.
I hope you’ll enjoy baking and most of all eating these muffins – I definitely did. if you bake them, don’t forget to tag me in your photos.
what is your favourite baking ingredient? I’d love to hear from you ❤
