Cherry & Coconut Chocolate Muffins

Posted by on June 5, 2009

105g butter at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/4 cups plain flour
4 tsp baking powder
4 tblsp dark hot chocolate powder
1 cup light milk
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
80g glacé cherries, diced (or more, as desired)

1. Put the butter and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, then beat in the chocolate powder, 1 tblsp at a time.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and coconut.

3. In two batches, alternate adding the dry ingredients and milk to the egg mixture, mixing with a rubber spatula. Fold in the cherries.

4. Grease a muffin pan and fill the mixture to the rim of each cup. Bake on 190°C for 20-25 mins or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. If you prefer to make miniature rather than full-sized muffins, they only need to be in for ~7 minutes.

5. Transfer to a wire rack to allow to cool.

Makes 12 muffins.
