Lightworker Bakes Choco Devil Muffins

it's normal i figure. when one becomes familiar with the intricacies of cooking, baking is not far behind. below marks my first try at baking. it was yesterday, 25 july. just held off to have my say on the tragedy in norway.

it's not the classic baking style of sifting ingredients and measuring them in exact ingredients. this choco muffin recipe comes from a pack but even though, i am proud of myself just for the sake of trying and for yes, blazing a new love affair with baking.

The choco mix is blended with one egg, goat's milk (better substitute to cow's milk, 1 cup) and olive oil (3tbsp). Stirred thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
Laying them out on a cupcake tray.  This is Roxanne's plastic bakeware. The multi-color cups are mine, bought with a baking magazine, on special (A$2.99), just yesterday morning.
The recipe mix is good for 12 muffins but since using a 6-cake tray, had to stack the ingredients that's why the chocolate hills turned to mountains of mix and choco chips. Baked in a pre-heated oven at 175C (fan forced) for the first 20min. Had to bake further for another 10min, but at a lower temp of 150C because the insides were still gooey.
Whoa! The finished product! Just letting it stand for 2 minutes and more. Look like little horny devils huh? C'mon, let's eat!
