Cereal swirl mini muffins
Updated: Apr 13, 2021
Last weekend I went to a Comehome event at a friends house, the theme was "One Thousand and One Nights" so I came up with these Cereal swirl mini muffins that kinda remind me of a colourful galaxy on a chocolate sky 😍
What do you guys think? Can you see it too?
Well you need a bit of imagination of course but anyway, they were a hit! And they are super easy to make so check out the recipe below and make it too!!
60ml vegetable oil
100g granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
75g sour cream*
120g all-purpose flour
25g cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
--- TOPPINGS ---
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your mini muffin tin (I have a silicone mould with 24 cups).
In a bowl mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and leave it aside.
In a bigger bowl pour oil, sugar and milk and mix with either an electric mixer or an hand whisk until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Add the egg, sour cream and vanilla extract and keep mixing until you get a creamy consistency.
Finally add the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until just combined.
Pour the batter into the mini muffin pan with a teaspoon filling up the cups to 3/4.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with a few crumbs (a bit fudgy but not too dry).
Let them cool in the pan for about 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
Melt dark chocolate on a double boiler or in the microwave.
You can use greek yogurt instead of sour cream but the result will be slightly different since the sour cream is higher in fat.
If you make it let me know! :)
