Chocolate Custard Muffins

Chocolate Custard Muffins

I wanted to share my favourite chocolate muffin recipe by Dan Lepard, honestly if you love chocolate muffins you really have to try this! Beautifully moist, dark luxuriously chocolatey muffins that are very moreish and not too sweet.

Tip: use really good quality cocoa powder and dark chocolate. You could also try adding a few chocolate chips on top.

50g cornflour

3 level tbsp cocoa

100g dark soft brown sugar

225ml cold water

75g unsalted butter, cubed

125g dark chocolate, broken small

75ml sunflower oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 large eggs

125g caster sugar

125g plain flour

2½ tsp baking powder

First make the custard: put the cornflour, cocoa, brown sugar and water into a saucepan and whisk together over a medium heat until boiling, very thick and smooth. Remove from the heat, beat in the butter and chocolate until melted and absorbed, then add the oil, vanilla and one of the eggs, and beat again until combined. Add the remaining egg and the caster sugar, and beat again until smooth and thick.

Measure the flour and baking powder into a bowl, stir together, then sift directly on to the custard and beat through until combined. Spoon into a dozen paper muffin cases sitting in the pockets of a muffin tray; heat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4 and bake for about 25 minutes.
