Chocolate Raspberry Muffins …
Ingredients …
  • 1 ¾ cups plain flour (I used plain gluten-free flour)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder (I used raw Cacao)
  • ⅓ cup caster sugar
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons apple puree
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup low fat or skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 6 teaspoons raspberry jam
Method …
  1. Place cupcake cases in a 12-hole muffin tray and preheat oven to 200C. Sift flour, baking powder and cocoa into a large bowl and then stir in the castor sugar and chocolate chips making a well in the centre.
  2. Combine apple puree, eggs, milk and melted butter, mixing until well combined. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and fold together until just combined being careful not to over mix.
  3. Using only a tablespoon of the mixture, fill each cupcake case. Spoon ½ teaspoon of raspberry jam into the centre of each muffin and then top each muffin with the remaining mixture. Bake for 14 minutes and test the muffins are cooked by inserting a skewer into a muffin, which should come out clean.
