Simply Chocolate Muffins

I am not sure where I found this recipe.  I was obviously in a hurry when I wrote it down because it is written in a kind of recipe 'shorthand' I frequently use. 

Once you've made a few dozen muffins, cakes, or cookies you don't need all the detailed instructions so I just note the ingredients, oven temperature, and baking times. 

All that other stuff is superfluous.  I mean, you know a muffin is going to need a paper case... perhaps not one in a leopard print, but a case all the same.  

So here's the recipe in my 'cook's shorthand'.  By the way,  T=tablespoon and t= teaspoon, I think the rest is self-explanatory.  

CHOCOLATE MUFFINS  (makes 10-11)  200C/400F    15-20 minutes

Combine following in a large bowl:
250 g flour
175 g caster sugar
3 T. cocoa powder 
1 T.  baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
pinch of salt  

Mix together in a large measuring cup or jug:
1 egg
1 t. vanilla 
100 ml veg oil
250 ml milk 

Pour into dry ingredients, stir until just combined.*  Bake 15-20 mins @ 200C/400F

*This is where you spoon the batter into the cases, but you already knew that.  

I hope you enjoy them!
