Chocolate Chip Praline Muffins

DSC_0149

I’ve never had much luck baking muffins.  They either seem to come out too dense, or too flat without that trademark muffin crackle on top.  But!  At last, I seem to have found a recipe that works for me and seems to be pretty adaptable to whatever filling you fancy.  Me?  I’m never not fancying a bit (a lot) of chocolate, and to be extra fancy – instead of making just plain old chocolate chip muffins – I added some hazelnut praline for an extra crunch.  🙂

Chocolate Chip Praline Muffins (makes 12)

Ingredients

  • 150g Plain flour
  • 100g Self-raising flour
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 90ml vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 large egg
  • 250ml milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Sea salt for sprinkling
  • 150g chocolate chips (as well as a little melted chocolate for drizzling)
  • 100g hazelnut praline (you can find my recipe here)
  1. Preheat the oven to 200° and line a muffin tray with paper cases.
  2. Sift together all the dry ingredients (the flours, baking powder, cinnamon, caster sugar, chocolate, and 50g of the praline).  In a separate bowl, whisk together all the wet ingredients.  Pour your wet mix into your dry mix and stir.  You want a runny, lumpy mixture – so don’t over stir or worry if the mixture isn’t perfectly smooth.
  3. Separate into the muffin cases, then bake for 20 minutes until well-risen.
  4. Whilst still warm, drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with the rest of the praline and sea salt. 🙂

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
