Chocolate Cake Muffins

A chocolate lover’s utopia.

These muffins are my chocolate dreams coming true right in front of my face. 12 incredible muffins and delicious aroma all around my house.

Tender, soft, like a brownie, chocolate cake, and a big moist muffin all in one.

You cannot taste the instant espresso powder at all BUT it just makes that chocolate taste really chocolaty. Not at all overly sweet. The sour cream gives incredible fine moisture. Just the perfect chocolate dessert.

It is a really great muffin recipe.
