Chocolate Almond Raspberry Muffins


Chocolate Almond Raspberry Muffins

Ingredients

2 ¾ (385g) Cups All-Purpose Flour, sifted
1 Cup (About 100 g) Ground Almond

2 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Baking Soda

1 tsp Sea Salt
¾ (165g) Cup Brown Sugar
¾ (185 g) Cup Crème Fraiche
3 Large Eggs
¼ (1/2 stick/56g) Cup Unsalted Butter, melted
1 Cup (250 ml) Milk, at room temperature
½ Cup Corn Oil
1 tsp Vanilla Paste
180 g Chocolate Chips
¾ Cup Organic Raspberry Jam
½ Cup Almond Flakes

Method



Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 350˚F. Butter or spray the 24 molds in a small size muffin pan or fit the molds with paper muffin cups. Place the muffin pan on a baking sheet.



In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, ground almond, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. In another bowl, whisk together the sugar, Crème Fraiche, eggs, melted butter, milk, corn oil, and vanilla paste. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and, with rubber spatula, gently but quickly stir to blend. Don't worry about being thorough-if the batter is a bit lumpy, that's fine. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Fill cups 1/2 full. Place 2 teaspoon raspberry jam on each muffin; press into batter. Then fill the batter to almost to the top, sprinkle with almond flakes. 

Bake for 25 to 28 minutes, or until the tops are golden. Transfer the pan to a rack and cool for 5 minutes, then carefully lift each muffin out of its mold and onto the rack to cool.

Makes 24 small muffins

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
