Hello lovely readers.  I hope you’re all safe and well.

I’ve been playing with recipes again- this time I’ve adapted several of my grandmother’s recipes to come up with some Chocolate Spread and Brown Sugar Muffins

Warm your oven to 180 degrees / Gas Mark 4

Ingredients  (Makes 4-5 large muffins/6-7 small muffins)

160g Self Raising Flour

half tsp baking powder OR bicarbonate of soda

50g brown sugar (plus a little extra for sprinkling on top of the muffins before cooking)

60g melted butter

1 egg

125ml milk

125ml (approx) of Nutella or other chocolate spread)

Grease a muffin/cup cake tin or use cup cake cases


Stir all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.

Add the butter, egg and milk. Beat until combined. (This will form a fairly thick doughy cake mix)

Fill the bottom half of your cup cake cases/the tin with cake mixture.

Place a large helping of Nutella over the top.

Cover with more cake mix until the cup cake space/case is full.

Sprinkle more brown sugar over the top.

Bake for 15-20 mins, until cooked through.

(Best eaten warm)


Happy cooking,

Jen x
