Chocolate and condensed milk muffins

Chocolate and condensed milk muffins 1

I had some friends over the other day for brunch and, the night before, my lovely other half suddenly told me: “We should make something sweet”. Panic! Luckily, I had some dark chocolate (not enough though) and a can of sweetened condensed milk left in my cupboard and took inspiration from an old recipe to whip up those muffins. I crushed a few walnuts on top.

Although they turned out really nice, I would suggest serving these chocolate and condensed milk  muffins fresh out of the oven, still slightly warm.

To make 12 chocolate and condensed milk muffins, you need:

Chocolate and condensed milk muffins

INGREDIENTS

  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 150 g butter
  • 3 eggs
  • A can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 150 g flour
  • 70 g walnuts
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C. In a micro-wave safe bowl, break the chocolate and cut the butter into small chunks and heat for a couple of minutes (you can get the same result by placing your bowl over a small pan of simmering water but using the micro-wave is just a bit quicker).
  2. In a big bowl, break the eggs, add the condensed milk as well as your mixture of butter and chocolate and whisk together.
  3. Add the flour, half of the walnuts broken into small bits, the salt and baking powder and whisk again until you get a smooth mixture.
  4. Place your mixture into muffin cases in a muffin tray, sprinkle the remaining bits of walnut on top and bake for 20-25 mins. Before switching off your oven, make sure the muffins are fully baked by inserting a knife into one of them.
  5. I used walnuts but you can use whatever tickles your fancy (hazelnuts, chocolate chips, candied orange peel...be the master of your own muffins!)
