Method

  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.

I added an extra egg white and whisked them up to make the sponge light and fluffy. Also added a big spoonful of chocolate spread. Very yummy and will definitely make it again :o)

These are the perfect low fat muffins. They can explode if you mix the flour in too quickly so fold it in slowly for the best results. Overall, a great recipe!

On it's own it hardly excites my taste buds but with the custard it is completely different.
