What you'll need
For the muffins
1 ⅓ cups Lo-Fo Pantry All Purpose/ Plain Flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
2 ½ teaspoon baking powder
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa
⅛ teaspoon salt
75g room temperature butter
1 cup caster sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup almond milk
For the chocolate ganache icing
150g dark chocolate chips
½ cup almond milk
Preheat the oven to 160C and line a 12 capacity muffin tray with cupcake liners.
Place caster sugar and butter in a bowl. Use electric beaters to cream the butter and sugar. Once the butter is light in colour add in the vanilla extra and eggs, one at a time.
Sift in ¼ of the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa and salt into the butter mixture. Alternate with the almond milk, stirring in-between until a thick mixture forms.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin tray. Fill the cupcake liners till they are ¾ full.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Meanwhile to make the ganache, melt the dark chocolate chips and use a fork to whisk in the almond milk. Cover and place in the fridge to cool down.
Once cool, spoon it into a large mixing bowl and use electric beaters to whip it, aerating the ganache.
Once the Chocolate muffins are completely cooled, top with ganache.
