Welcome

Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !

Walnut and chocolate muffins

Français.
Let's start with a simple recipe, and with chocolate, because I love chocolate!! Muffins are great with a nice chocolate or cappuccino, but eat one and you are full! You can do this recipe just with chocolate, but I prefer to add the flavour of nuts (by the way, walnuts are the typical product of the town I currently live in!).


Ingredients (for 12 muffins)
3 eggs
250g sugar
1 sachet of dried yeast
250g flour
10cl milk
120g melted butter
1 pinch of salt
150g dark chocolate
60g walnuts

Preparation
Mix the eggs and sugar until the mixture is getting white. Add yeast, flour, melted butter and salt.
Chop together the chocolate and the walnuts (in a blender for example). Add them to the  mixture 
Butter the muffin moulds and pour the  mixture .
Bake 20 to 25 min at 175°. 

Tipp: I usually bake for 5 min less than what is put on the recipe, and check if it is necessary to extend the cooking time. Better than having burnt cakes.
It is usually said that you don't need to butter the moulds. I listened to that. Once. The result was terrible, I couldn't unmold the muffins. So, once bitten, twice shy!

Bon appétit !!!
