Make some milo muffins today
When it comes to food, there is one thing that I just can't resist – Milo. There is something about that delicious chocolate taste, or maybe it's just that it reminds me of being a kid (before I realised that eating Milo straight from the tin can sabotage the benefits of eating well for a whole week).
Milo is great for a chocolate taste in your recipes. Or you can eat it straight from the tin.
So, when I was stuck for a muffin flavour to make my kids smile, the Milo Muffin was an obvious choice. My Facebook post about this delicious treat was met with pleas for the recipe. Finally, I am introducing (insert drum roll) the Milo Muffin.
Ingredients cup butter (125grams) cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 eggs 2 cup self-raising flour
cup milo cup warm milk Method
1. Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl.
2. Beat the eggs and add them to the large bowl.
3. Add the milo to 1/3 cup of hot water, mix well and then add the warm milk. Stir until the milo has dissolved.
4. Add the sifted flour and milo mixture into the large bowl. Beat until the mixture is smooth.
5. Spoon the mix into greased muffin tins.
6. Cook in a preheated oven (180oC) for about 25 minutes, or until the muffins bounce back when touched firmly.
7. Allow to cool before removing from the muffin tins.
8. Top each muffin with a blob of chocolate ganache or chocolate spread (Sweet Williams dairy and nut free chocolate spread is delicious). Sprinkle with Milo for a chocolate crunch.
