Mission Accomplished

Posted on


One fine day while looking for recipes for different desserts I realized I cannot try most of them ‘coz I need gelatin. I could not find the ingredient in any super/hyper market. After more than a month of search I managed to find it in a small shop in Chandivali. But then I could not find the recipes. The same thing happened with another ingredient- cinnamon and also muffin moulds.
Anyway, I have wanted to try muffins for a long time now. After hours of waiting for KC I started baking with a vengeance. The recipe is from Anita’s blog (www.sliceofmylyfe.blogspot.com).
  • Oil – 1/2 cup (you can use butter also if you want)- I used butter
  • Eggs – 3 large
  • Flour – 1 cup (Maida)
  • Whole Wheat Flour – 1 cup (Normal atta)
  • Sugar – 2/3 cup
  • Milk – 1 Cup
  • Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
  • Dark Choco Chips – 1 cup (milk will do too) – I used blocks of Cadbury’s dairy milk and chopped them to bits. I used Bournville dark chocolate. Bring the chocolate at room temperature and break into small pieces
  • Cinnamon Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Oats- 3/4 cup
  • Baking Powder – 1tbsp


  • Whisk together eggs, milk, oil and vanilla essence. Whisk as you want, but it wouldn’t turn fluffy and creamy as a mixture with butter would. But I would suggest that you whisk it well for about 15 minutes or more. I used a beater (attachment with Morphy Richards) for 5 mins
  • Mix together the dry ingredients i.e flours, oats, sugar and baking powder and chocolate chips
  • With a spatula fold in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Try not to over mix and thats the key to good cup cakes/muffins .
  • Pour into a lined cupcake moulds. Bake in a preheated oven for at 180C for about 15-20 minutes till the skewer comes out clean
They taste good and are healthier ‘coz of oats, wheat flour (instead of only maida).
Waiting for KC’s verdict.
Next weekend: Cup cakes with tutti fruti.

  1. Its great that you take pride in cooking. A lot of today’s so called emancipated women think it is demeaning to have any ability to cook. They take pride in NOT knowing how to cook. You on the other hand are comfortable in being who you are. Commendable !

  2. Umm… Why only women? Why not men? Everyone should take pride in cooking but then again to each their own… we all have different talents and interests.
