Hey guys! It’s Leah from nowmatterhow.

One reason why I love it to blog is the virtual communication with other people you will probably never meet in real live. Exactly for this reason, I am always like a madman about messages. No matter what kind. That I may publish several guest posts at Midsommarflicka is a great honor for me and I’m very thankful and happy about that.
On my blog you can see the things in my life that make me happy and let me spread love. These are my family, creativity, photography and the ability to make the world with my making a little bit better and happier – my little world.
Baking is also a passion of mine. I enjoy to connect things together and take pictures of the (hopefully great) result at the end and then share it with people.
For my first guest post here I have chosen nothing that nobody knows, only muffins. Everyone knows them and I actually know nobody who can resist them when they are done correctly.

I like recipes which are done by myself and I think these muffins are a little bit special, because they got their name while the baking.
People who have ever baked with me, know that I like to talk with my eating. As I developed the recipe for these muffins, I probably had calculated a little too much flour, so the dough was also not really nice to me at the end. It was a bit too tough, so I insulted him again and again. Apparently it has helped, because in the oven, the muffins rose nicely and also tasted great. Because the dough was (in the beginning) so nasty to me, I named the muffins “Monster Dough Chocolate Chip Muffins”. This is the little story behind it and I hope that you have fun with your muffins, if you bake them by yourself. Bye for now!

( I’m sorry, but I just like to bake with cups … so typically American. If you have no cups, you must better or worse convert the quantities themselves. But there are meanwhile already apps and websites to convert. )

3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa (deoiled)
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup soft butter
2 medium eggs
1/2 cup chocolate chips (or more)

First you preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius (top and bottom heat).
Then you mix the dry ingredients together. These are flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
Next, you mix the liquid ingredients. These are milk, oil, eggs and butter.
Then you stir the liquid mixture with an electric mixer. You give the dry ingredients little by little to the other and stir it with the hand mixer while you do that.
After that you pug in each trough of the muffin sheet a paper case.
I baked the muffins 25 minutes and then they had a nice crispy crust and inside they were still nice and fluffy. The baking time can vary depending on the oven. After they have cooled down a bit, you can even decorate the muffins with some chocolate!

I have got out more than a regular muffin sheet with twelve muffins but I’m also always make a little more dough, because I have my cups always something too full.
