Choco Berry Muffins

I am a certified lazy baker. I am the ever enthusiastic cook, who seldom bakes. This weekend I decided to put on my baking gloves and bake some Berry Choco Muffins. These are loaded with assorted berries ( Blueberry, Strawberry, Blackberry, Sour cherries and Strawberries) and topped with Chocolate icing.

Pure sin.

Trust me it was fun baking these and it was darn easy!

Prep time: 10 minutes Baking time: 10 minutes You will need: Β (do use measures for this)

  • 1 cup of Assorted berries ( I used the Rosta ones)
  • 1 and a half cups Maida( All purpose flour)
  • 3/4th cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup Oil
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1 and half tsp Vanilla essence
  • A pinch of salt

For the icing.

  • Cocoa Powder 1/4th cup
  • Icing Sugar 1 cup
  • Milk 1 cup

Method:

  • First sieve the flour, baking powder. Baking soda, salt in a bowl and keep aside.
  • In another bowl , blend the sugar, milk and oil.
  • Mix the sieved ingredients of the first bowl with the second quickly into a smooth paste so no lumps are formed.
  • Add the berries and the vanilla essence to this mixture.
  • Preheat your oven on the bake mode at 180ΒΊ
  • Grease muffin liners and arrange them in a muffin tray or in silicone moulds.
  • Fill the batter into the muffin cups. DO NOT overfill them. As they are bound to rise and spill.Filling them 3/4th is just fine.
  • Place the muffin tray/ silicone moulds on the baking tray
  • Bake them for about 10 mins at 180 ΒΊ
  • Check if they are ready by inserting a toothpick.
  • If the toothpick comes out clean, your muffins are ready!!
Before the icing
  • While your muffins cool, in a bowl mix icing sugar with Cocoa powder .
  • Add the milk little by little and stir to avoid lumps.
  • Pour the milk, depending on how thick you want the icing to be.
  • Decorate the muffins with the icing using a icing bag.
  • Incase you don’t have an icing bag, you can use a spoon to spread the icing on the muffins.
  • You can use any icing with these: Coffee is another great alternative!

Bon Appetit! πŸ™‚ Do try them and let me know! πŸ™‚
