Chocolate & Cheesecake Muffins


I know, I know... I've been a wee bit obsessed about muffins here lately... Carrot Muffins, Donut Muffins and now Chocolate & Cheesecake Muffins!

But seriously, the muffin mania is all worth it when you taste these amazingly delicious treats... cheesecake and chocolate - my two absolute favourites put together!!

I discovered this recipe on A Piece of Lisa - and make sure you check out her muffin photos as they look way better than mine!!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp salt
125 g butter, room tempered
1 cup demerera sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla sugar
2/3 cup milk
150 g dark chocolate of a good quality

Cheesecake filling:
300 g cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla sugar

Preheat your oven to 175°c/350°F ~

Mix flour, baking powder, bicarbonate and salt in a large bowl and put to the side. Whisk the butter and demerera sugar with an electric mixer and add the eggs one by one. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the cocoa and the vanilla extract, then add milk and the dry ingredients you prepared earlier. Mix well but don't stir more than necessary. Lastly, break the chocolate in chunks and stir them in.

Make the cheesecake filling by using the electrical mixer to whisk the cream cheese until soft. Add sugar, egg and vanilla extract and whisk it all together so it becomes smooth and airy.

Now place around 20 muffin cases on a baking sheet, and spoon the chocolate batter into each case so it is about 2/3 full. Fill them up with cheesecake filling.

Bake in the oven on 175/350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Soooooooo good!!
