Wooohoooooo! My kind of week!

Here is a gorgeous recipe - not strictly a cupcake, but who cares? It's molten chocolate for crying out loud!!! Enjoy!

The best muffin pan you can buy here!

Dark Chocolate Truffle Muffins!

175 ml cold water
75 ml sunflower oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

(60% cocoa solids) with a smooth melting filling
Cream or vanilla ice cream, to serve (optional)

1. Put a paper muffin case into each well of Muffin Pan; set aside.

(scraping mixture out of bowl using Classic Scraper).

and 4-cm wide) into top of each muffin using Professional Shears.
10. Gently push one truffle into each muffin until nearly flush with top of muffin.
Cool in pan an additional 10–15 minutes (truffles will melt into muffins).
