Sounds decadent, right? Well, I ‘healthied’ it up for you and made this with whole grains and a real dairy pudding from scratch. I started out by using the Muffin Mix I’ve posted about umpteen times, then I used Homemade Chocolate Pudding in the middle.
After you make the pudding, set it aside to cool while you make the muffin batter. I made batter for 3 dozen muffins.
Chocolate Pudding Muffins
- 6 cups muffin mix
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder (I used organic, fair trade)
- 3 cups milk or sour milk (I used whey from making cottage cheese)
- 1 cup canola oil
- 4 eggs
- 1 recipe Homemade Chocolate Pudding (you will only need part of the recipe, so you can snack on the rest) 🙂
Mix all ingredients, except pudding, until just combined. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling 1/3 full. Add a small spoonful of chocolate pudding into the center of each cup. Top with remaining batter. Bake at 400 F for 15 – 20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted near center comes out mostly clean. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from tins and cool on rack. Refrigerate when cool.
Try not to eat them all in one sitting so you have some to enjoy the next day. 🙂
Judging my how fast these muffins are disappearing, they may be a new favorite in our household! What is your favorite chocolate recipe?
