    In the chat lately I've been bragging about the chocolate muffins I've made a couple of times recently. This is the recipe:
    For unit conversions if you're not comfortable with grams or millilitres, use: https://www.google.ie/search?q=unit...ie=UTF-8#es_sm=119&espv=210&q=unit+conversion

    Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes in the oven
    12 large muffins
    150g butter
    200 ml sugar
    100g dark chocolate
    2 eggs
    1.5 tsp vanilla essence
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    5 tablespoons cocoa
    350 ml plain flour
    200 ml milk
    Preheat the oven to 175 ° C. (that's about 350 F)
    Cut up the butter and place in a bowl (so time to get a bit warmer than refrigerator cold). Pour in the granulated sugar.
    Grease a muffin pan that holds 12 large muffins (or use large muffin cups). Chop the chocolate.
    Beat butter and sugar until smooth, using electric mixer.
    Add the eggs, one at a time and whisk quickly into a fine paste.
    Beat in the vanilla and baking soda.
    Beat in the cocoa.
    Beat in flour and milk together. Whisk until smooth.
    Stir with a spoon down the chopped chocolate.
    Spread the batter into the muffin molds.
    Bake in oven at 175 ° C for about 30 minutes.

    This is NOT part of a balanced and healthy diet.
    However, it's good for your soul.

    100 Milliliters is 0.422675 US Cups. So 200 ml is a little bit less than a cup. 350 ml is a decent bit less than 2 cups, but more than a cup and a half.

    100 grams is 3.5274 oz. So 150 grams is a bit more than 5 oz, but not quite 6.

    1 egg is the same amount of eggs in Europe as in the US so 2 eggs are roughly 2 eggs, do not include shells.
    Edit: Please note that while metric eggs are square, they contain the same amount of eggness on the inside.

    I wonder how well these would work with gluten free flour? I have a friend with a gluten allergy, and these might be interesting to try when I'm staying with her next week, if we have time.

    I don't actually know. The recipe doesn't actually say and I don't know enough about baking to dare give any advice.
