Method

  1. Heat oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Brush 6 holes of a muffin tin with a drop of oil. Sieve the cocoa into a large bowl, then add the rest of the dry ingredients. Stir to combine, then make a well in the centre.

  2. Beat the milk, egg and oil together in a jug, pour into the well, then stir quickly to make a batter. Spoon into the muffin tin, then bake for 15 mins or until risen and firm to the touch. Heat the custard in the microwave according to instructions, or in a pan, then tip in the chopped chocolate and stir until smooth. Turn the puddings into bowls and pour the custard over.

The muffins ended up in the dustbin as they sank when I took the out of the oven into horrid rubbery bullets- however, the custard was DELICIOUS and so we rescued dessert by pouring the custard on some chopped up ripe banana with some toasted almond flakes to finish.

Sorry but didn't like these muffins at all. Never tasted such rubbery muffins. Sorry not suitable for my taste buds!!

I'm not 100% sure these qualify as muffins really. You can't eat them on their own, they didn't seem chocolatey or sweet enough. I did try adding choc chunks which lifted it a little but definitely required the custard. Will be searching for other muffin recipes.

I made the lemon ones and they didn't rise very well. Does anyone know why? I didn't use a muffin tin, could that make a difference?

Quick, easy and light. However you can tell they were low fat! I added a square of dark chocolate to each one which gave them more of a chocolate taste. I would make them again and make the chocolate custard next time

These were lovely! spontaneously made them this evening because I had the ingredients and my nan had the munchies. I didnt, however, have any ingredients for custard, so instead i drizzled it with warm chocolate icing and then dusted with icing sugar. It looked and tasted like something from a restaurant kitchen and was very quick and easy!!

I made mine with quinoa flour and added a tbsp of chia seeds to the wet ingredients instead of an egg. I also made them as mini-muffins. They turned out moist and were a bit bland. They didn't rise much, but i'm not familiar enough with quinoa flour yet to know if that's the reason. I'd probably add more cocoa powder next time.
