Double Chocolate Muffin

Hi, Everyone!

Today’s post is made by my little chef, Alyzza.

My daughter is 3 years and 8 months. But it seems like it’s only yesterday when I have to go to the hospital to give birth to her.  How fast time flies.

I actually like making some easy recipes and doing it together with my girl. But there are some times that even if it’s very easy to make, I still don’t let her “help” me. It feels like when she’s “helping” me, it takes longer and double the work. If you know what I mean. In her age, she wants to try everything. Touch everything. And doing things that I’m not allow her to do.

I didn’t know what hit me last weekend. One night before going to bed, I thought, “Hmm.. maybe Alyzza can try making chocolate muffins by herself?”. Of course I’ll help her too, but she’ll do most of the work.

As expected, she was really excited when I told her she can make chocolate muffin by herself. And she did a really good job. Hopefully I can post more recipes that she made by herself :)

Let’s just take it as her early preparations to compete in junior master chef. Haha!

Well, let’s take a look at the preparations and recipe, shall we?

So what about you? Do you like to involve your kiddos in the kitchen?

Double Chocolate Muffin

Ingredients:

  • 300g all purpose flour
  • 80g cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 250g buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs

  • Mix all the wet ingredients in another bowl. Just beat until incorporated.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Add 3/4 of the chocolate chips into the batter.
  • Divide the batter into 12. Sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chips (I added sliced almonds too).
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean.
