Chocolate Muffins - My blog turns one today!!!
Yes, my blog turns one today. It all happened during Diwali last year when I ventured into preparing Karchikai, one of my favs of all time. The very excited me clicked some pictures and wanted to post them somewhere. Yes, that's when the idea of this blog came to my mind and I quickly created a blog with some classic template and jotted down the recipe. And I told myself, I am going to do this with all the recipes I will be cooking. I wanted to have a diary of recipes with pictures where I can look when I forget something which would be helpful for others too. And thus began my journey as a food blogger.
That is when I started looking around and found so many food blogs and mostly Indian food blogs! I just could not believe that so many people are already doing what I thought of so late. Yes, the Tubelight me! I really cannot mention which ones were my inspiration, as there were a lot of them! I would like to thank each one of them for doing what they have been doing and inspiring others around.

So here I am one year down the lane. I still cannot believe its been one year already. More so because, I haven't really been able to post as much as I'd wanted to and I haven't been as active as I'd have loved to. But, I made some good friends here, interacted with so many virtually. That itself has been a great experience. So I want to thank all fellow food blogging friends and readers who visit my blog and leave your valuable comments and compliments. Each of those words really mean a lot to me.
To celebrate, I made a batch my favourite chocolate muffins. I wanted to bake them without eggs, but I had so many questions. So I went ahead and baked something with the recipe I already had. Next time around I am going to try baking eggless ones.

So here's to one year of being around and many more to come!
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 190 C and line the muffin tray with paper liners.
Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder into a mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar.
Next, lightly beat the eggs and oil together in another bowl until frothy, then slowly mix in the milk. Stir this into the dry ingredients.
Using a spoon, fill out the muffin tray till 3/4 full.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes. For me, it was done in 20 mins.
Note: You dont have to beat the mixture (since not using butter). I just stirred it with a spoon.
Yields: 12 medium sized muffins
Time Required: 10 mins (preparation) and 20-25 mins (baking)
