Chocolate Muffin again




These chocolate muffins are made following the recipe from Joy of Baking. The muffins stayed soft for 2-3 days (kept in zip-lock bag in room temperature).

My notes:
- reduced sugar to 110g of  dry demerara sugar
- baked at 190 degC for 30 mins
- to replace buttermilk: use 1 tbsp of vinegar and fill up to one cup with fresh milk, let sit for 5 mins

This is an easy recipe and you really do not need to pay for that expensive chocolate muffin from Starbucks :p

      开始了,就会越懂越多,也会爱上它,嘻嘻

    4. 你说的对 :)我是想到过程就打退堂鼓了,听说面包机能代替手工kneading, very tempted to own one :D

    5. 我听有面包机的朋友说,要打两次面团,面包组织才较理想哦
      她们用搅拌机打面团,效果比较理想
      其实手工Kneading也不难,掌握技巧也是没问题的
      只是,用搅拌机和面包机的话,会省时省力,呵呵

    6. 两年前我用手工,满头大汗,发现做面包真的不容易,加上新加坡太热,象三温暖 哈哈! 有什么tips吗?

    7. 妳可以参考网络上分享出来的视频,看人家怎样摔打面团,然后再动手做,慢慢就会上手了咯!面团一定要摔打至可拉筋状态,面包组织才会理想哦,加油咯!^^

    1. Hi Boon Suan, thanks for visiting :D I am using Bosch HBN331E2J. it is a built-in oven and what I like about this oven is its digital timer, which is very useful when it comes to baking cakes. It was a breeze to call a popular neighbourhood electrical store, got a price quote (better price than big electrical store), and delivered, payment by cash/cheque upon delivery! I read up on HHB's blog http://happyhomebaking.blogspot.sg/2010/11/is-it-b-b-or.html before making the decision :) Hope the info is useful. Good luck to your oven hunting!
