Cherry Chocolate Muffins

Have you heard of Herman the Cake? Mr. Sweets came home with a tub of Herman mixture, and I was to follow this cute recipe for 10 days and share the mixture with a 3 other people.

So Day 10 finally arrives, and I start to add the final ingredients. But guess what I forgot to do in Day 9? I forgot to divide the mixture up into 4 portions!! Since I'm not good at math, and I ran out of ingredients, oh and I don't have a humongous bowl, I had to throw poor Herman away.

But I wanted Mr. Sweets to have *something* to bring with him to work! We bought maraschino cherries and chocolate just for Herman because that's what Mr. Sweets wanted.

So muffins it was! Who doesn't love muffins?

Recipe from here!

  • 175g Self-Raising Flour
  • 50g Margarine
  • 50g Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons Milk 
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 200g Chocolate Chunks
  • 1 Little Tub of Marashino Cherries 

♥ Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl and make a well in the middle

♥ Mix the eggs, vanilla extract, milk and margarine in another bowl, then add to the flour mixture

♥ Stir all the ingredients until just combined. Over-mixing will make the muffins dry.

♥ I then mixed the cherries in a food processor because I don't like pieces of cherry in anything! But it's totally up to you!

♥ Add the cherries and chocolate and mix!

♥ Pour the muffins into a muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes at 200 C/ 400 F!

These were very delicious! Mr. Sweets really loved them! 

Smooches! xoxo
