Small-Batch Chocolate Muffins with Strawberry Jam
Recipe Type: Muffins
What to do:
My first test batch had more jam in the middle, which ended up spilling over and making an oven mess. Fun! So, even though it's tempting to add more jam to these, the clean up isn't worth it.
I like to use half regular cocoa powder and half dutch-processed cocoa powder to get the best of both worlds. You can use one or the other, or combine them like I do.
My favorite test batch actually had 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and 1/2 cup of sugar, but they were really strong and I know not everybody likes that.
If chocolate muffins aren't enough to make up for my recent lack of blogging, maybe these photos of our back yard baby geese and bunny will do the trick? Papa Goose wasn't particularly pleased with Bunny, but Bunny was too busy eating grass and tasty leaves to care at all.
