These muffins taste as good as they look! The melted chocolate sauce makes these muffins moist and delicious.

They freeze well but I like to eat them warm. I make them gluten and lactose free and they taste great.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 - 25 minutes
Makes: 12

Melted butter or Nuttelex, to grease
1 1/3 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 cup milk (lactose free if required)
125 g butter or Nuttelex, cubed
1/2 cup cocoa or cacao powder
1/4 tsp bicarb soda
1 cup self raising flour (gluten free if required)
2 tbsp plain flour (gluten free if required)
3 eggs, whisked

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Grease and line a 12 slot muffin tin with patty liners.
Place the sugar, milk, butter, cocoa and bicarb soda in a large saucepan on medium-low heat. Use a whisk to stir until the mixture is smooth (don't boil). Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
Sift half of each of the flours into the pan and stir until the mixture is smooth. Add the remaining flours and stir.
