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
source: Call me cupcake
- 300g all purpose flour
- 80g cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 250g caster sugar
- 100g butter, melted
- 250g buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 150g dark chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 200C.
- Prepare the cupcake pan with liners (I use muffin cups, sturdy enough to stand by itself).
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
- 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.
