Eggless Chocolate Muffins for Birthday Celebration

I made these chocolate muffins a weekend couple of weeks ago. With the summer vacation on for the kids, they have been after me to make them some muffins. Since these ought to be eggless I was again trying out a different proportion improvising on my other muffin recipe. As a replacement for the egg, I was trying to use Olive oil, milk and butter. And also wanted to have that crumbly effect, so make a cake flour.

Having always thought that one can't make cake flour at home, discovering this simple fix was an amazing thing. I should thank Simmi for sharing her knowledge. Now be it a cake or a muffin, it is not done without corn flour being used. When I finally made these Egg less Chocolate muffin, they disappeared so fast. I just remembered to click few pictures. Second batch I dusted it with castor sugar to make it look pretty. I was baking these non stop for three days and hubby dear was complaining that if these take so much of my time, he will as well get it from shop. Athamma replied that those may not taste as good and kids may not like them.

Check out Eggless Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Frosting for detailed procedure on how to do with step by step pictures. This is very similar muffins and gets done in a jiffy.

We celebrated Konda's birthday yesterday. She had invited her friends and my colleagues also. We are missing Athamma and twins as they have gone to visit my sil. We decided to make Chole Batura, Jeera Rice with Masoor ki Dal. Everything turned out so well and all had a great time relaxing. I was thinking it was high time I make the birthday cakes myself. So to make up for that, I baked a different one this morning, which I will be posting later.

I remember making Seviyan for her birthday last year. And both my sils were here with their families. We were hoping they will come down this year too but couldn't make. I was especially looking forward as I was planning to make some more breakfast thali. Let me see if I can anyway make it.

Now let's get into the recipe details. FYI: The basic proportion that goes into these muffins are same. You might be wondering why I should be posting almost similar recipes. I know how much it matters as each time the taste and texture differs and I would surely hope these different proportions will help a novice.

Eggless Chocolate Muffins

All purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup *
Corn flour - 2 tbsp
Olive oil - 2 tsp
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
Cooking Soda - 1/4
Cocoa powder - 2 tsp
Salt a pinch
Icing sugar - 1 cup
Butter - 2 tsp
Milk - 3/4 cup
Chocolate Chips handful

Method to prepare:

In a measuring cup, add the corn flour, add the flour on top of it. This will get you the cake flour.

Sift all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Melt the butter and add to the flour. Gently stir in the mixture. The add the olive oil, slowly add milk and gently mix in. Add the Chocolate chip at the end and stir.

You can slowly add the milk to get the mixture little loose.

Pre heat the oven at 185 deg C. Line the muffin tray with liners and scoop a spoonful into each muffin cup. I used a small cup and got about 12 muffins.

Bake at 185 deg C for 15 mins. Check if it's done by using a knife. Allow it to rest. When it's cooling over the rack, dust the top with icing sugar.

Serve little warm as it tastes best!
