Flour-less Chocolate and Raspberry Muffins. .

Today i had Kate from Our Little Sins and her gorgeous boys over for a play-date. I have been reading Kate's blog for quiet a while now and we only just realized that we had meet each other through a mutual friend years ago! I couldn't believe it when Kate recognized me, such a small small world! We had a lovely morning, the boys surprisingly played pretty well together. We drank tea, ate yummy biscuits from Kate and little flour-less chocolate cakes i had made. It was so nice to meet again and reconnect, not only do we have boys similar in age, we both blog now too! Yay, for bloggy friends!




Ingredients
150g dark chocolate, chopped
125g butter, softened.
3 eggs, separated
90g caster sugar
100g almond meal
2tbs caster sugar, extra
Handful of frozen raspberries

Method
Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius. Grease a muffin pan.
Melt chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over simmering water until smooth.
Add egg yolks, sugar and almond meal. Mix well.
Use an electric mixer to beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Sprinkle over extra sugar and beat until firm peaks form.
Fold into chocolate mixture until just combined. Add frozen raspberries and fold gently. Spoon into muffin pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean.
Set aside to cool on a wire rack.

Beautiful served warm with a little vanilla ice cream, or just as they are with a nice cuppa.

What are you up too this fine day?

  7. They were soooo good, and you are so lovely for remembering that I don't eat wheat - thank you! I did realise until after we left that I didn't eat the whole thing - got distracted by the kids! I think I'll just have to make them at home. See you soon :)
