Double Chocolate Muffins are soft and spongy muffins with double treat of chocolate .
Since the past couple of months , I have practically stopped baking . I am not consuming any sugar or maida . To bake something , I need a occasion , and friends or family who would relish these bakes .
It was my son’s birthday and I had a reason to bake , but before I could get into action Sneha already baked a cake . It was a small cake and got over immediately . At night my hubby asked if there was some cake so he could take to office for the staff – and I immediately jumped up and said Yes yes ! I woke up early morning and baked these chocolate muffins . They are super simple and so quick to make . He was surprised to see all the muffins – perhaps he was expecting a few pieces of cake . I was happy as I got a call from the office staff saying they loved these muffins .
Sometimes I wish we should have really big families , you get a chance to bake or cook easily . With small families we hardly get to cook or bake stuff . Anyways , here are these super delicious , sinfully chocolaty muffins which you will totally love !
These Muffins are my Day 1 post for Kid’s Delight – Srivalli’s Anniversary Party.
