After a very bizarre Friday evening, I decided that I needed to restore some balance in my life and get back to baking. It is has been a few weeks since I have created something new. Today I woke up with an intense desire to bake chocolate muffins. I am not sure where the need came from, possibly the aftermath of eating chocolate ice-cream at lunchtime yesterday. There has also been a bag of dark chocolate pieces sitting in the fridge for the past few weeks just asked to be melted into a chocolate frenzy. As usual Google provided me with a wealth of recipes to try and I eventually decided on one from Baking Mad.com. I was interested in the use of sour cream in the ingredient list. It is not something that I have even used in non-dessert recipes but it made for a very moist and soft creation. My husband, who is a huge chocolate fan, loved these muffins. I think they will become a regular staple!
