If you live in Ontario, you know that this May 2-4 weekend was not very sunny or warm. Traditionally, this weekend is for planting beautiful flowers in the garden and is also the start of the cottage season. I know that a little unpleasant weather wouldn't keep Canadians from going to the garden centre or up north but I felt a little chilly and decided that a really good way to warm up would be to turn on my oven.
The Chocolate Intensity muffins I made certainly infused the house with warmth. The batter mixes up easily and lends itself to all types of add-ins such as chocolate chips and nuts. I opted to include white chocolate chips for some contrasting colour. Mr. CB thought that this was a terrible idea on my part and requested plain chocolate chips for next time. Other than that, he had nothing bad to say. The muffins are chocolately but not heavy and have a nice moist crumb. The top gets crackled on top so you can show it off or dust it with icing sugar. They hit the spot when you're craving something sweet and go very well with hot tea.
The weekend isn't over yet - have a happy Victoria Day everyone!
