Strawberry-Yogurt Muffins with Choco chips

Baking to do away with the blues. That is what I did yesterday. However I was so wound up that I forgot to check my baking powder supply. It has now reached the bottom of the tin and unfortunately I had also ran out of fruits salts which can be used as a substitute. On top of that I was dropping stuff and by the time the muffins went into the oven, I realized that I had forgotten to turn on the bottom grill. Somehow I managed to make a batch of decent looking (but very tasty) muffins but ended up feeling even more wound up. I guess I need a break from the regular stuff.....hence planning for a vacation sometime next week or so. Worry not if I go MIA for a few days...

For now, read on for the quick recipe -

Total Time - 25 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar (powdered)
  • egg ( 1 no)
  • yogurt ( 2 tbsp )
  • baking powder ( 1/2 level tsp )
  • choco chips (2-3 tbsp)
  • Mala's strawberry crush ( 1 tbsp )

Preparation - Take the butter in a mixing bowl and beat it for 3-4 mins. Add the powdered sugar and beat well for 5 mins or till the mixture turns a few shades lighter. Mix in the strawberry crush.

Break egg into a separate bowl and beat well such that stiff peaks can be formed.
Stir gently into the butter-sugar mix. Add the yogurt too.

Mix the flour and baking powder together. Use a sieve to gently sift it into the batter in small batches. Mix gently till no lumps remain. Add in the choco chips.

Grease a non-stick muffin tray. Pour into the molds till 2/3 full. Sprinkle some choco chips on top.

Cooking - Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Put the tray inside and turn down heat to 160 degrees after 5 minutes. Bake for another 10 mins. Insert a toothpick at the center of muffin and check if it comes out clean. Else bake for another 5 mins.

Note - Dust the choco chips in some flour before adding to the batter. This prevents them from sinking (well I actually forgot this step too).
