Ingredients

  • 150g dark chocolate (about 50% cocoa solids)
  • 1 x 150ml carton double cream
  • 75g unsalted butter, in pieces
  • 125g milk chocolate
  • 50ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 50g dark muscovado sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 175g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • a pinch of ground cinnamon

  1. Chop 75g of the dark chocolate into small pieces. Put in a bowl with 40ml (3 tablespoons) of the cream, set over a pan of barely simmering water and stir to melt. Tip into a plastic box, cover and chill in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Melt the butter; cool slightly.
  3. Roughly chop the rest of the dark chocolate and the milk chocolate. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the rest of the cream, the milk, sugar, eggs and melted butter.
  4. Sift in the flour, cocoa, baking powder and cinnamon. Add a pinch of salt and the chopped chocolate; fold gently to combine.
  5. Divide half the mixture between 6 tulip muffin cases in a muffin tin. Add 1 teaspoon of the chilled chocolate to the middle of each one. Top with the rest of the mixture.
