My creative space post this week is all about the chocolate muffin. Alex my grandson, adores muffins, he recently set me a challenge of making him the perfect chocolate chip muffin.
I looked through lots of recipe books but finally settled on a recipe that my daughter Laura had used and was really pleased with. It was very easy and seemed to work well - although I didn't put quite enough mixture into the muffin cases. The recipe was for 20 big muffins and I decided that smaller muffins would work better for the children. I made 12 medium and 18 small from the mixture which was stretching it a bit, next time I will reduce the number and fill the cases 3/4 full.
The real test was the taste test, Alex, Finn and Daisy arrived home from school and nursery - hungry as usual. The table was set and the challenge began.........................
Three smiley happy faces - I think the muffins received the thumbs up.
Hope you get time to visit Kirsty for some more creative goings on...............
