  • . 1 tsp. (5ml) pure Vanilla extract
  • . 1 cup (250ml) dark Chocolate ice-cream, thawed *

  1. . Pre-heat oven at 350F/180C/Gas4. Position rack at the 2nd level from the bottom of the oven. Prepare a muffin pan with paper liners. Note: oil spray will be used right before pouring the batter.
  2. . DRY MIX: In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients.
  3. . WET MIX: In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and add in the rest of the wet ingredients. Blend until well combined.
  4. . Make a well in the dry ingredients and then add the wet mixture. Combine until there is no appearance of flour. Do not over mix the batter. Set aside.
  5. . Take the muffin pan and paper liners (optional)...spray a generous spot of oil into every cavity. Fill each cavity three-quarters of the way. This will ensure a domed cap.
  6. . BAKE them for about 26-28 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. When you take them not wait longer than 5 minutes to extract them out of their moulds. Place them onto a metal rack to have them cool. Yes, they will still be hot...but not unmanageable. This will stop the muffin from over baking and will keep the liners from sticking too much to the muffin. Note: When ready to peel off the cupcake gentle.
  7. . Happy baking and Claudia's flavourful
