Show Your Stuff #42 - Chocolate Muffins

This weekend I was really in the mood for chocolate muffins. I started to search the internet for a recipe, I was not finding a recipe that involved the ingredients I had on hand. So I improvised one that I had in a cook book. I have vanilla in the recipe. I wanted to add it in my batter and forgot it. I felt the the muffin was just a little bland and I think the vanilla would of brought out more of the sweetness of the chocolate. I also added chocolate chips on top of the muffing before baking it thinking the chips would sink a little into the muffing while baking, it did not happen. So next time I might mix the chips in with the batter.

So here is the recipe:

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup of cocoa
2 t. baking powder
1 beaten egg
3/4 milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 t vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix the dry ingredients, make a well. Combine the wet ingredients and add to the well. combine until just moistened add the chocolate chips. Lightly grease muffin tin or add paper liners. Fill about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees about 20 minutes or until done.

So now it is time to join in the party and link up what you are proud to show off!

Cadbury Creme Egg Twisted

I was at a local candy store today. Being a fan of Cadbury Creme Eggs, I knew I had to buy the Twisted candy bar. This store has a very large selection of bottled soda and candy from around the world. It was treat to have this as Cadbury Creme Eggs usually only come out around Easter time.

Sunken Garden

I spent some time today at the Sunken Gardens. I needed some time to kill while my son was doing some community service for school. I really enjoy visiting the gardens, it is too bad that there is a drought going on, and the fountains were not running.

Corn Flake Cookies

I knew I had to try this cookie when I saw the recipe at  akawest.

I really like how the cookie tasted. For the nuts the original recipe recommends walnuts or peacan, but what I had on hand was sunflower seeds and almonds. It is still good, I bet you could used any kind of nut and it will still be good. The taste reminds me of Keebler Sandie cookies. You can find the recipe here:
