brownie muffins...sometimes you can have it all

as they brownie muffins...the reason for my cupcake wrappers and my twine bowl

...when i stayed at my parent's house during my vacation, we were invited to a nice get-together and i decided to bring a homemade sweet little something...but of course i did not bring any of my fancy little baking gadgets and had to improvise.

a more traditional dessert would be the solution...a chocolaty one of course...i could not decide whether i should go for brownies or muffins and therefore opted for a combination of the both...brownie muffins.

...these beautiful dark brown delights deserved a special presentation and thats why i came up with the elegant lacy cupcake wrappers and the shabby spray-painted twine bowl with a crochet flower.

the simple recipe does not require any extra ordinary always...but is really tasty and easy to make...i hope you enjoy as much as i did...

this is what you need

- 260g flour
- 60g chopped walnuts
- 40g chocolate flakes
- 60g sugar
- 2 tablespoon cacao powder
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon natron
- 125ml chocolate milk
- 180ml buttermilk

this is what you have to do

- mix flour, cacao powder, walnuts, choclate flakes, baking powder and natron in a bowl

- mix oil, the egg, sugar, chocolate milk and buttermilk in another bowl

 - slowly add the flour mixture and stir until all ingredients are moisty
