…preparations for batter:
Preheat the oven to 200°C (top/bottom heat). Line a muffin pan with paper liner. Melt 100 grams butter in the microwave or on the stove. Mix flour with 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder in a small bowl & set aside until further use. Peel off 3 carrots & coarsely grate with a grater.
In a mixing bowl combine 2 eggs, 75 grams sugar, 1 sachet vanilla sugar & a pinch of salt, then mix together with a mixer or kitchen machine for about 2 – 3 minutes until beautifully fluffy. If that’s done add flour mixture, melted butter & 75 milliliters milk & briefly mix together with a whisk until a smooth batter.
Finally fold in shredded carrots & half to two thirds of the chocolate chips & fill the batter into the prepared muffin tin with the help of 2 tablespoons. Then decorate the muffins with the remaining chocolate drops & bake in a preheated oven at 200°C (top/bottom heat) for approx. 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
Take the finished muffins out of the oven, let them cool down on a grid & then serve them lukewarm. Have fun baking!
