Eggless Chocolate Centered Vanilla Muffins


I'm back into weight concious mode and mood. Yup! Joined gym and have been working out for a couple of days now. Happiness is showing up as few extra pounds on my body :P Trying hard to trim it off.

Does that mean I would stop baking or indulging on filthy rich food!! NEVER.

Just that I would keep an eye on the quantity of intake. For example making a large cake and resisting to cut out a small piece for myself is hard for me, rather I would choose to bake cup cakes or muffins and stop with just one a day :) It makes life simple!!

Have been enjoying a lot of chocolate flavored cakes lately and wanted a change this time but really couldnt afford to miss the chocolate touch too. Hence came this chocolate filled vanilla muffins :)

They were absolute tongue ticklers :)



All purpose flour (Maida) - 1 cup (200 gms)
Powdered sugar - 150 gms (10 tblsp)
Cooking soda - 1 tsp
Cooking oil - 135 ml (9 tblsp)
Milk - 150 ml (10 tblsp)
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Cooking chocolate - 100 gms



Sieve all purpose flour, cooking soda and powderd sugar together into a bowl.

Add milk, cooking oil and vanilla essence and whisk to bring together. The cake batter should be lumpless and in dropping consistency.

Bring the cooking chocolate to room temperature and shave it using grater.

Preheat oven to 375°F or 190°C. Line the muffin tray with liners.

Fill muffin cups with cake batter upto 1/2 the height and now carefully place a spoon of chocolate shavings on top of the batter, just covering the center and not the sides. Now drop in few spoons of cake batter on top to cover the chocolate layer.

Bake it for 12 to 15 mins at 375°F or 190°C. Mine was done in 15 mins.

Truly yummylicious egg-less chocolate centered muffins are ready to eat :)

This quantity makes 12 soft muffins.

Enjoy making it just like what I did ;)



Add the chocolate shavings to the batter and give it a mild whip and bake them to get chocolate spotted muffins :)



Use cooking chocolate for the filling. This chocolate melts well when the cake is warm and gives a gooey center.

Spoon enough batter on top of the chococlate filling layer to avoid hole on top like mine :( Never mind it still looks interesting :P

Try to bake chocolate flavored cake with white chocolate filling for a change too :)

You should not worry Nits. You are supposed to gain weight girl. That is the norm. Anyways spotted muffins look superb. I see that you have used oil instead of butter. Lovely.
