Marble Muffins with Cream Cheese Frosting

20.3.13

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to bake every other weekend.  And now, 11 weekends into the year, I've managed it!  I got this recipe from Baking Mad so rather than repeat it all, if you wanted to give it a go you can find the recipe here.

A few things to note....the mixture does begin to look like really runny scrambled eggs at one point.  It'll sort itself out when you add the flour.  The cocoa powder/milk mixture is bizarrely difficult to mix, and yes, it does resemble poo.  Finally, don't be afraid to be a bit stingy when filling your cases.  I made a few proper muffin size ones which will do for Ed who doesn't like the frosting, but their domed shape will make icing them tricky.  The best muffins are those that don't quite reach the top of the cases once cooked. 

Baking Mad has loads of recipes to try, including savoury ones which will be perfect for a novice cook like me!  Next on my list for a baking Saturday however are the banana cake and this delicious-looking chocolate cake.  Will you be giving these muffins a go?

    1. This one's really nice actually. The only other thing I use cream cheese for is my marble brownies, but that's just cheese and caster sugar which, according to Ed, can still taste cheesy. I added a touch of caster sugar to this, but I don't think it tastes cream cheese-y at all! x
