A year ago Nancy found a recipe from Dan Lepard (one of our favorite bread bakers) for a Chocolate Custard Muffin that she was hoping to make one day. Thursday was the day, and she and I baked together in one of our Twitter bake alongs.
The recipe is fairly easy and quick, not as quick as a standard muffin, but not bad with all the custard making and the chocolate chopping and all. (I have become quicker at making things now that I have had a bit of experience these past two years in the baking groups, I will say that.)
Into the oven for 25 minutes and out came 12 pretty perfect looking muffins: I love their crackly tops. The guys all loved them, and unlike the experiment of putting nuts IN those banana-pecan cupcakes, well, they disappeared like magic. Banana-pecan cupcakes with nuts IN them are still sitting here. So much for experimentation.
The Chocolate Custard Muffins were a big hit and I am not losing this recipe anytime soon as I figure I will have need for it again and again. Click here for the recipe.
