These may seem like ordinary chocolate muffins on the outside, but they're hiding a fruity cream cheese center.
4 eggs, divided
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 1/2 ounces dark chocolate, melted
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
9 ounces low-fat cream cheese
1/2 vanilla bean
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 1/2 ounces raspberry compote
Let's get Cooking...
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a bowl, combine 3 eggs, milk, sugar, butter and melted chocolate. Stir in flour, cocoa and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, combine the cream cheese, 1 egg, sugar, vanilla bean, lemon peel and cornstarch.
Grease the muffin tin with butter and dust it with flour. Add some chocolate batter to each muffin cup and use a spoon to make a space in the center. Add a dollop of cheesecake filling in the middle and some raspberry compote on top.
Dilute the rest of the chocolate dough with a little milk and pour over each muffin.
Bake for approx 15 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
