Double chocolate muffins

It's cold, it's grey, it's Monday and I am giving you chocolate muffins. Please don't burn the inside of your mouth when you eat them straight from the oven!

Double chocolate muffins

140g plain chocolate
375g self-raising flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
55g cocoa powder
85g caster sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 tablespoons sunflower oil
375ml milk
140g white chocolate, chopped

Pre-heat oven to 200/gas 6.

Melt the plain chocolate and set aside to cool slightly. Sift the flour, baking powder and cocoa into a large bowl and stir in the sugar and chopped white chocolate. Mix the eggs, vanilla, oil and milk together in a separate bowl and add the melted chocolate. Roughly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients; less is more at this stage - do not mix too thoroughly. Divide the mixture between 15* muffin cases and bake for 20-25 minutes. Dust with icing sugar over when they are cool.

*The muffin in the picture was one of 18. I think they should be more top-heavy so suggest you make 15, or even 12 if you want whoppers.
