Triple Chocolate Muffins

Triple Chocolate Muffin

Triple chocolate muffins are a chocoholic’s dream come true. There is no other way of saying this. I am a chocoholic and I will never understand why some people say they eat less chocolate in summer because it is warm. Seriously? I don’t get what the wheather has to do with anything. I will eat chocolate, all the time. I love chocolate. Always. Period.

Triple Chocolate MuffinAnd I was craving chocolate when we moved from the north of Germany to the south. I don’t know, unpacking boxes, scrubbing the old apartment, decorating the new apartment, whatever the cause was, I wanted something very chocolaty, desparately. And then I thought of this recipe I had seen some time ago. If you don’t know the blog Bake to the roots, check it out, it is one of my favorite blogs.

So I went to Marc’s blog and found this triple chocolate muffin recipe. Aaaah, this was exactly what I wanted and what I needed. Super, duper soft, veeeery chocolaty, and so moist and even more chocolate flavor. Yes, I loved it from the first bite, I am sure you will love it, too.

Triple Chocolate MuffinUnsure of whether this is for you? Well, if you want to know, this recipe yields about eight tall muffins and you will use about 300 grams of semi-sweet chocolate. If this ratio isn’t prefect, I don’t know what is. Think of a brownie, soft, very chocolaty cake/muffin and you will get this dream come true.

    The first time I made these muffins, I had popped them into the oven only to discover, when I turned around to look at the counter, that I had accidentally left out the cocoa powder. It was too late to add it. But when the muffins came out of the oven, I was shocked by how spectacularly good they were–light as clouds yet deeply chocolatey and completely addictive. I made them again, this time adding the 30 grams of cocoa powder called for in the recipe, but it made the muffins dry by comparison. So I’ve tinkered with the recipe, adding only 2 grams of cocoa powder, using a mix of milk chocolate and bittersweet chocolate, using homemade creme fraiche instead of sour cream, using a 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. of espresso powder. I mix in all the chopped chocolate and top with a sprinkling of sparkling sugar. I just made a double batch for my brother for his birthday, and he pronounced them the best chocolate muffins he had ever eaten in his life. I can’t thank you enough for this amazing recipe, which, by a happy accident in my case, turned out to be the best thing since sliced bread, making muffins better than any bakery chocolate muffins my family has ever eaten. We adore them!
