It’s kind of like a freak show isn’t it… blogging I’m talking about. Depending on the blogger behind the blog, you basically are given a seat on their front porch to gawk at them through their open windows and watch their lives unfold – well chapters of it anyway.
To judge them, to pick them apart, laugh at the crazy insanities they share, debate their parenting choices, to cheer them on when the awesomeness of awesome arrives at their house, pass them a tissue with Mr McSuck visits… learn shit you wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t for an awesome post by someone that knows their shizz, to troll, to stalk, to converse like you have known them forever…
So because I dearly love everyone – yes freaky stalker people, maybe even you – and because SMOM has been filled with too many crappy days the past few months – I know you’d be sick of it, because I’m sick of it! I shall spoil you with an awesome recipe I found yesterday when I woke up to discover someone had injected me with some kind of Domestic Goddess drug – when I find them they’d better run, I hate cooking but I keep doing it!
Be prepared to curse me with being the cause of breaking your diet. These babies are easy peasey to make, and frick me they taste nice too!
Triple Choc Muffins
**Please note – If you are going to make a double batch – like I have to because I have five ferals – you will need one huge big arse bowl. My normal big bowl wasn’t big enough and I nearly lost half the ingredients more than once… probably about five times if I am to be honest! The following ingredient measurements are for a single batch only.
You will need:
90g butter – melted
2½ cups self raising flour
3/4 cup caster sugar – I just use normal white sugar.
½ cup cocoa
½ cup white choc chips
½ cup milk choc chips
½ cup dark choc chips
1. Preheat oven to 190′c – do it right now because you will forget!!
2. Add ALL ingredients into the bowl and mix through by hand – this is probably the only time I have reached for the wooden spoon to mix. I hate the wooden spoon with a passion, the feeling of it gives me the heeby jeebies! – if you make a double batch I hope you have strong arms, cause it’s tough work!
**WARNING** Mixture tastes awesome uncooked.
DO NOT “TASTE TEST” IT IF YOU WANT COOKED MUFFINS!
YOU WILL BE TEMPTED TO EAT IT ALL!!!
3. Fill your muffin cups about 2/3 with the mixture and bake in your pre-heated oven – don’t forget you should have pre-heated the oven!!!
Large muffins bake for approx 25 minutes – Small muffins bake for approx 15 minutes - every oven is different so this is a guide only, my oven took 30 minutes for big ones because my oven is dumb.
I made a double batch – which made 24 small muffins plus 30 large ones. We’re gonna be eating muffins for days!
Yes, they do taste as good as they look! And yes you can taste the diet naughtiness of them!
Do you cook yummies in your house, or can the supermarket cook better than you?
Do you hate cooking like I do, but find yourself doing it anyway… and even enjoying it?
