Black Cherry Muffin aka Buttermilk Chocolate Muffin

This is gonna be a quick entry.. as quick as preparing this muffin.. i did it twice.. the first one i totally forgot to add sugar and after taking a bite i was like.. blahhhh.. knew something was not right.. thought i had added too much salt or maybe i didnt mix my baking soda properly.. just didnt know whats wrong with it..

Bef i had a bite.. hb and our helper Lisa took one muffin each and they gave me that look lol.. Sonia, Hairi and Naim (Hairi's childhood friend) ate it like there was nothing wrong with it.. apakah??!! hahaha

After taking pics and all that while updating my blog i realised that i had forgotten to add sugar to my batter geeeshhh.. quickly went to my pantry.. took all the ingredients out and voila.. i hv a new set of muffins in my kitchen.. Lisa took my unsweetened muffins home and I am now enjoying it with a cuppa with dear hb.

So ok.. originally the recipe calls for black cherry.. if u hv black cherries u can stick to the original recipe.. i didnt hv any and subbed with chocolate chips instead.

100g unsalted butter
125g dark cooking chocolate - i used 55% and 64% valrhona chocolate
100ml buttermilk
2 eggs - whisk lightly with a fork
175g all purpose flour
15g cocoa powder - i used valrhona
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
50g light brown sugar
50g caster sugar
1/2 tsp salt
100g black cherry - i used chocolate chips

Melt butter and pour into dark chocolate - set aside to warmish
Add buttermilk to ur butter/chocolate mixture and continue to stir.. add whisked eggs and stir again - set aside
In a big bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder.. add brown sugar, caster sugar and salt to ur flour... mix
Once mixed add ur "wet" (butter/chocolate) mixture into ur "dry" ingredients
Stir it lightly - DO NOT OVERMIX
Pour batter into ur fav muffin cups
Bake in a preheated oven of 175C for 20mins
Serve warm!

Recipe is fm Primarasa

Hi rima,

Yahoo, you're back. Kinda miss your entry. Maka ku jadi malas nak bake (alasan).

Will definitely bake this muffin soon. I just love chocolate based recipes. Just found a bakery shop nearby that sells Valhorna chocolate!

Have a great day and i hope it's not too late for me to wish you Happy Birthday! Another year wiser that is

This is my third entry since i got home fm KL.. didnt get to do anything last week cos we were away and i hv orders to fulfil.. ni tmrw onwards i will be a little busy.. hopefully i will hv the time to bake something for the family and share recipes with my readers..

Ty for the wish.. wiser benarrrr hahaha

These do look tasty. I like the fact you used more chocolate instead of cherries. This would surely squelch any chocolate cravings-yum! Your picture is enticing. Also, I have been scanning your blog, so I wanted to wish you a belated happy birthday. Hope you enjoyed your special day!
