Quick eggless choccy muffins

    25 min

    People think that good muffins take time and fuss, but these are super quick, super easy and don't even use any eggs! We came up with them when we had a major chocolate cake craving but had forgotten to pick up some eggs. They are a real crowd pleaser - very moist and really chocolatey - and are great to knock up for a party at the last minute. Serve with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce for a gorgeous brownie-like dessert.

    Makes: 8 large muffins

    • 130g wholemeal flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 170g demerara sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
    • 240ml milk
    • 4 teaspoons margarine or low fat spread
    • 1 splash white wine vinegar
    • 65g cocoa powder
    • 4 teaspoons chocolate spread
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 1 pinch grated chocolate (optional)

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Pop all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir briskly until combined.
    3. Divide the mixture evenly between your muffin cases or cups and sprinkle the top of each with demerara sugar and the grated chocolate, if using.
    4. Sling 'em in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes, until well risen and just firm on top.


    For the richest, most moist and delicious cakes ever, use real drinking chocolate flakes instead of cocoa powder (Montezumas and Choccywoccydoodah both do excellent versions).

    Serving suggestion

    Serve with ice cream, cream, chocolate sauce or fruit for a dinner party-ready dessert - or ice and decorate them for parties!

    Brilliant recipe! Very easy and made a great dessert for the family. A lot like brownies. I substituted wholemeal for white flour and had no wine vinegar so used a tiny bit of white vinegar. Turned out great. Thank you. Xx  -  02 Mar 2014
