Chocolate Swirl Muffins

I had about an hour to spare last Sun. I felt very weird not baking anything for the weekend, so I managed to pyscho myself to DO SOMETHING! Otherwise I would not have a 'great weekend'.

It was a simple task as I baked half the portion. So everything was quick, clean and easy! These muffins are small and serve as a good afternoon snack or breakfast. I use margarine so it's lots healthier.

Serves about 7.

A
2 eggs
60g caster sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla essence

B
55g plain flour (sifted)

C
40g melted butter

D
About 20g Lindt chocolate (to double boil)

1. Whisk A at high speed until pale yellow (something very smooth and creamy)
2. Add in B and mix well with a spatula.
3. Add in C and combine thoroughly.
4. Pour batter into 7 muffin cups (3/4 full) and drop melted chocolate over. Swirl with a toothpick.
5. Bake at 180deg C for about 25min.


(ok not very well taken pics as they were taken on my study table and using compact cam)

Alternatives:
You may add orange zest if you want something citrus, or chocolate chips if you want a double chocolate flavour. Or you can add both! It's free play!
