Chocolate Muffins

I've finally found the best chocolate muffin recipe ever.
I've made the muffins twice this week and think I may be addicted...

Today's version is inspired by the falling snow outside.

Here's the recipe:

  • 200 g margarine
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1½ cups of flour
  • 2 tsp cocoa

Melt the margarine and add the chocolate so that it also melts.

Beat the eggs with sugar and vanilla sugar.
Add the flour and baking powder - and finally the cocoa. Stir until the dough is smooth.

Spread the cake dough into 12 muffin tins and bake at 200° for approx. 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with icing sugar - so it looks like snow.

Cole & Son



I really like the graphic patterns, geometric forms and cool colors of the British company Cole & Son who is the manufacturer of these hand-painted wallpapers - with a long history back to 1875.

Many thanks to Cole & Son for letting me post these inspiring wallpaper pictures.

Spring Mood

These days, I'm really longing for spring.
I can't wait to feel the sunshine, to have warmer and brighter days - and to begin new outdoor projects.

These pictures from last spring really makes it hard to enjoy February's cold and grey days.

I'm in the mood for
pastel shades & spring flowers
