181 – Chocolate Date Muffins Recipe – Father’s Day Special
- 150 grams of dark chocolate
- 150 grams of date paste (refer to video on how to make it)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1- We need 150 grams of dark chocolate. Make sure you use the best quality of dark chocolate you can find, because it makes a big difference in the taste. The chocolate needs to be melted, either you melt it in a “bain-marie” or using the microwave. If you use the microwave, melt the chocolate in 30 sec sets, and mix it in between, otherwise, it can burn very easily when melted in the microwave.
We also need 150 grams of date paste. Heat it up in the microwave for 30 seconds before using it.
2- Add 1 tablespoon of sugar to 2 large eggs. Using your egg beater, beat the eggs until you get a whitish mixture. Sift 1/3 cup all-purpose flour over the egg mixture, add 1 teaspoon baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Using a spatula, mix all the ingredients.
Add the melted chocolate while mixing it into the egg mixture. Finally, add the date paste and mix well.
3- To bake the muffins, we will need a muffin tin. Place cupcake paper cups in the muffin tin. Using 2 small spoons, put some of the batter in the paper cups until they are 3/4 full.
4- Preheat your oven to 360 F degrees. Bake the muffins for 12-13 minutes. Once the muffins are done, if you gently touch the top you’ll notice that they are a bit soft. I prefer not to overcook them, and actually a little bit undercook them, because then you get this smooshy chocolatly softness inside.
Let the muffins cool down, then remove the paper cups from the muffins.
You can serve them warm with vanilla ice cream or just place them in a plastic bag and put them in the fridge. When you want to eat them, pop them in the microwave for 15 seconds.
