20101228 Chocolate & Cranberry Muffins

(SOURCE: BBC Good Food - Skinny chocolate & cranberry muffins)

My muffins are not skinny as I didn't use skimmed milk and low fat yoghurt as instructed, because I find all skinny dairy products not delicious. Who cares about diet in the week between Christmas and New Year anyways?! Oh these muffins tasted so good, especially when they were still warm and the chocolate was a bit gooey in the middle.

250g self raising flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
85g light muscovado sugar
85g dried cranberries
25g dark chocolate, chopped
125g yoghurt
125ml milk
3 tbsp sunflower oil
1 egg, lightly beaten

1. Heat oven to 160 degree C. Microwave chocolate on medium for 1 minute, stir, and set aside.
2. Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder, and cinnamon into a bowl. Stir in sugar and cranberries.
3. Mix yoghurt and milk with oil and egg. Make a well in the dry mixture and gently stir in the liquid. Drizzle half the chocolate, gently fold in until swirled, repeat with the remaining chocolate.
4. Don't over mix! Spoon to 12 muffin cases, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until risen.
