Chocolate donut muffins

We already adore the delicious donut muffin hybrid, and this version of the recipe adds a scrumptious chocolatey twist. Not just a yummy chocolate bake, these tasty chocolate donut muffins are filled with a yummy Malteaser chocolate spread inside, making for one delicious bake.

Ingredients (makes 9-12 donut muffins, dependant on the size of your muffin tin)
  160g Plain flour
  40g cocoa powder
  140g caster sugar
  140g butter
  150ml milk
  1 tsp Baking powder
  1 egg
  1/2 jar of Malteaser chocolate spread

Pre heat your oven to 190c/170c fan oven/gas 5 and get a muffin tray out ready for your bakes. I used some silicone muffin trays for my bakes, making for a swift and easy release of the muffins once they'd cooled.

Sieve together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder with the sugar and add the butter, blending together.

Whisk together the egg with the milk, then pour into the mixture and blend together to a thick, smooth consistency.

Spoon 2/3 of the mixture into each muffin case, then place 1 tsp of the Malteaser spread on top, I found this wonderful stuff on my usual supermarket shop and just had to try it; imagine Nutella with crushed up Malteasers inside, it's delicious!

Finish off by placing another spoon of the mixture on top of each case, covering the Malteaser spread. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes until risen, with my donut muffins the Malteaser spread just started to bubble up through each muffin resulting in a deliciously gooey topping in the centre of each donut muffin, yum!

Leave to cool in the trays then remove and place on a wire rack to cool.
