We made these today and they are superb!



Muffins:

1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda

1 cup chocolate chunks (Use quality chocolate)
1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts
1/2 cup freshly grated coconut, toasted till lightly browned

1 egg
200ml milk
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 drop marshmallow oil

Method:

Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius.

Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar together. Toss in chocolate, peanuts and coconut. Toss to coat chocolate etc with flour.

In another bowl, whisk egg, milk, oil, extract and marshmallow oil. Make a well in the dry ingreds. and pour in wet mixture. Fold with a wooden spoon to combine.

Spoon into lined muffin tins and bake for 14-20 mins, checking at the 12 minute mark. These muffins bake very rapidly.

Let cool. Frost with any meringue frosting, or leave plain if you're not a fan of frosting.

Just a few notes:

These muffins are not very sweet on its own hence we used an italian meringue frosting..then we blowtorched it to imitate a 'marshmallow top'

Do not overmix or else your muffins will turn out tough

Use good quality chocolate (we used Lindt)

bakingjourney...welcome!

If you are based in Singapore,marshmallow oil is just on of the many flavours that LorAnn carries. They are available at B-I-Y..just a few drops of this imparts a lovely flavour to your pastries.
Think of them as an extract,only more concentrated.

Hey Stefanie, yup, I'm based in Singapore but haven't been to BIY. It seems like their products are a little expensive so I haven't been there yet. Thanks for explaining tho! Very Happy

meowmeow, you could do that, but of course, it would be a very healthy Rocky Road...hehehehe......

Go ahead, since this is a very adaptable recipe. If your gal really loveeees peanuts, why not even make a peanut butter frosting instead? :o) Good luck!

meowmeow...oh yes I remember your girl loves nuts but not chocolate!
Go ahead and put in some dried fruit if you will...but bear in mind this isn't a very sweet muffin so you might want to adjust sugar accordingly...

Cookingmonster...my cousin bought it from the UK for me...however why not check out your neighbourhood hardware or DIY store most should sell kitchen blowtorches at a reasonable price.

Baking journey...I agree that they are a little steep but they do carry a selection of goods that aren't available anywhere else...and that's why I have to buy the LorAnn oils from them haha!

Cookie monster, I think (if I remember correctly) I saw the blow torch at pantry magic some time back. Smile

Stefanie, seems like I need to visit BIY one day! Oh and can you explain what is grated coconut? Is it the same as dessicated ones? Thanks a lot!

Meow Meow...I do hope she enjoys them...let us know how it went!

Cookingmonster...I'm sure they will have it in stock!

Baking Journey...grated coconut is actually what Amrita got from the supermarket... *EDIT from yesterday's typo error
It isn't dessicated coconut which in my opinion,tends to be rather horrid as it is dry and mealy.
We then toasted it in a dry pan over low heat until it turned golden brown and absolutely fragrant.... Very Happy

BakingJourney, I bought the coconut from the freezer section of the supermarket, not the wet market (just to clarify things up)

Hey stefanie and fishandrice, thanks for explaining. I've only seen dessicated ones around so the next time I shall keep a lookout at the frozen section of the supermarket. Yeah!

Oops my mistake..too much sugar in my brain I tell you! so how?

You could get the fresh coconut too from the wet market..just ask them to remove the brown husk before grating..then freeze the rest for another day...

Cookingmonster,the one for metals would be larger and more powerful!
Ask for a kitchen-friendly one... wouldn't want to set the cupcake on fire...

stef & fish: This cake taste GREAT! My gal & my nieces all loves it even without the choco... all of them are cleared during tea-time. but no one leave me one *arghz* and no one remember to take pix to show me see stars

They added in lots of cranberries, blueberries. strawberries and some nuts. According to my sis, the cake is moist and fluffy. Not too sweet.

My gal was smiling the whole nite and wanted more next time. Thanks for sharing.

Hello girls,

Can I check with you, how many cuppies can this yield? I'm wondering whether to make the durian mousse cake or this tonite

Also, can I omit the marshmallow oil if I cant find them?

Can I use lindt milk chocolates?

Lastly, is the grated coconut those found in the mini markets? Where the people will grate it there n then using a machine?

Lastly, will normal peanuts do the work?

Sorry so many questions.

Regards...May

MeowMeow, congrats! Glad that your family loved it!

Maymay, this yields 12 muffins.

You can omit the mm oil and replace it with vanilla extract. Lindt will be fine! Yes, normal peanuts will also work, but will prob have a diff flavor.

As for the coconut, yes, you can use the ones that the people grate in markets!! Good luck!

Hi MeowMeow...hey always an excuse to make more right? Hahaha..
I love it how they turned it into such a healthy snack..I want to try your version next time...

May...everything sounds good...tell us how it went!
We used honey roasted nuts but I imagine that the normal slightly salted one would work very well too... Very Happy

Hey guys,

Just made it tonite. A little bitter though cause of the 65% of cocoa chocolate but overall it was good. Will look for another chocolate alternative and will definitely make this again in future.

Thanks Amrita & Stef for the recipe..

Regards...May
