Friendship Cocoa Muffins
I devised this recipe one day when I wanted to use my friendship starter, but wanted to make muffins instead of the usual bread. I also made them with a slight chocolate flavor instead of cinnamon. Quite tasty!
- Serves: 10 persons
- ¼teaspoon cocoa powder
- ¼cup white sugar
- 1cup all-purpose flour
- ½cup white sugar
- 1teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¼teaspoon salt
- ¼teaspoon baking soda
- ½teaspoon baking powder
- ½cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter
- ⅓cup vegetable oil
- ½teaspoon vanilla extract
Step 1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together 1/4 teaspoon of cocoa and 1/4 cup of sugar. Grease 10 cups of a muffin tin, and sprinkle each cup with some of the sugar mixture to coat the bottom and sides.
Step 2In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Pour in the friendship starter, egg, oil, and vanilla; mix until well blended. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each one about 1/2 full.
Step 3Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the crown of a muffin comes out clean. Cool in the pans for about 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
