Mini chocolate chips cakes

Tomorrow we are off to Brittany for the holidays and I am preparing the food for lunch and snacks. I bought a few month ago a silicone baking tin which I barely used until now. But today it is the right time to use this tin for mini cakes! The shape is perfect for a lunch box.

For 8 mini cakes:

  • 150 g white flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 70 g white sugar
  • 70 g de butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons of milk

Preheat the oven at 180° C.

Let the butter melt slowly in a pan.

In a mixing bowl, mix sugar and eggs. Mix well to get a creamy mixture. Then add  the flour and baking powder. Add the butter and mix everything well before adding the chocolate chips. Stir the mixture but not too much.

Pour the mixture in your tin and bake for 35 minutes. (my over is getting old and the cooking time are getting a bit unsettled).

Orange and dark chocolate chips muffins

Orange and dark chocolate chips muffins

Orange and chocolate is one of the best mix!

For 10 muffins

  • 1 orange (we will use juice and zest)
  • 1 egg
  • 80g butter
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 80g sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract (optional)
  • 170g flour
  • 50g dark chocolate chips

Preheat  your over for 15 minutes at 180°C.

Press the orange to get the juice but you also need to grape the skin to get the zest.

In a bowl, mix the butter and the sugar together.

Add the egg and then gradually the baking powder and the flour.

If you really want to give these muffins a strong orange flavour, I advise to put one teaspoon of orange extract. I didn’t put in mine because I prefer to keep the flavour subtil.

Once combined add the orange juice and the zest and then finish by adding the chocolate chips.

Fill the muffin tin.

Bake for 25 minutes or until they are brown.

Let the muffins cool down before turning them out of the tin.

Chocolate Marble Cake

I am not a cake person but I love chocolate marble cake because it is related to my childhood. When I was a kid, I loved the chocolate marble cake from a French brand called Brossard (Savane de Brossard). I still think this is the best marble cake I have ever eaten because of its unique delicious taste. However, the recipe below is almost as tasty as the Savane!

For 6 persons

  • 100g butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 10cl milk
  • 200g flour
  • 2 table spoons of baking powder
  • 20g of vanilla sugar or 3 table spoons of vanilla extract
  • 3 table spoons of cocoa powder

Preheat the oven at 180°c.

Melt the butter in a microwave.

In a bowl, mix the melted butter, the sugar and the four egg yolks.

Add 10cl of milk, the flour and the baking powder.

In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until thick and stiff. Add them to the preparation.

Divide the mixture in two parts.

In one of them, add the vanilla sugar or vanilla extract. In the other one, add the cocoa powder.

Pour some of the vanilla preparation in a cake tin. Add some of the chocolate one. Keep pouring the preparation by layers.

Bake at 180°C at least 45 min. (baking time depends on the oven…)

Once baked, turn the cake out of the tin and let it cool down.

Chocolate Chips Muffins

I have tried several recipes of muffins before but I have never found them amazing as the chocolate chips or fruit always finished at the bottom of the muffins. After trying and improving the recipes, I manage to reach the one I wanted. I am happy to share it with you.

 

 

For 10 muffins

  • 100g chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 80g butter
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 90g sugar
  • 10g vanilla sugar
  • 150g flour
  • 3 table spoon of milk

You can do this recipe with fruits instead of chocolate. I often do it with blueberries.

Preheat  your over for 15 minutes at 180°C.

In a bowl, mix the butter, the vanilla sugar and the sugar together.

Add the eggs, the milk.

Then add gradually the baking powder and the flour.

Once everything is well combined, add the chocolate chips and stir but not too much.

Fill the muffin tin.

Bake for 25 minutes or until they are brown.

Let the muffins cool down before turning them out of the tin.

Enjoy your treat!
