… I am afraid, not much to report (http://thegoodlifebloggers.wordpress.com/2009/12/30/going-potty-wk-2-same-old-same-old-choc-muffins/). No pooh today (at all). I wonder if Red Ted is holding it in (aarrrgh). We shall persevere. Sigh.
Have upped the stakes to a gorgeous choc muffin (recipe below – super easy to make). Red Ted went potty (excuse the pun) when he saw it! And ran to the potty to do his business. only a wee came out. Felt sorry for him, so gave him a quarter of it, with the promise of a whole one when a pooh is deposited… fingers crossed!
Choc Muffins (got this off Mumsnet), I reckon 2/3 of the ingredients below are plenty for 12 muffins:
250g self raising flour
2 tsps baking powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
175g caster sugar
150g chocolate chips (I chopped up a bar of chocolate!)
90ml vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 tsp real vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6 and fill a 12 bun muffin tray with paper cases.
Weigh out the dry ingredients into a large bowl. Pour all the liquid ingredients into a large jug or bowl.
Mix both together – DO NOT OVER MIX – it will be a lumpy but runny batter. Spoon into the muffin cases.
Sprinkle more chocolate chips on top and then cook for 20 mins or until risen and springy.
Try using other ingredients such as blueberries, cherries, raspberries as a variation. Dust with icing sugar for a perfect finish.
