Pastry cake muffins

There are recipes that I just love. But not only because they taste very good , but because they also have memories attached to them. That’s how I feel about these little cakes and cupcakes. I love Russian cakes since my childhood and this taste of chocolate in combination with cheesecake is for me just the absolute exhilaration! The great thing about the little muffin variant is that you can bake just half the recipe and still get the full enjoyment. In addition, you save the cutlery! 😉

Actually, I’m not a fan of posting recipes that have been felt a thousand times, but I just love these plum cake muffins so much that I have to share them with you! In addition, my neighbors are sure to be happy about the recipe, because they were already happy about a plate of plum cake muffins and rhubarb strawberry crumble tartlets .

Mmmh, perfect for the coffee table!

Nachzubacken are the small cakes Muffin very easy. The chocolate base is essentially a crumble dough (about 2 parts flour to 1 part sugar and 1 part butter) with some baking powder and a spoonful of rum. Although I hardly drink rum, I love to bake it. So in most baked goods always a good shot of it. I just love the taste of a nice dark rum, there’s no aroma bottle against 😉

The idea for this small variant brought me a small booklet called Kaffeekränzchen Pastry cake muffins That Markus Oma gave me relatively at the beginning of our relationship (unless my memory deceives me: grin :). I also baked it for the first time with my sweetheart. Since then, I continue to file at the recipe, because the original version was delicious, but also very sweet and greasy. Properties I do not like about biscuits (unless they are brownies …).

After having tried 200 baking attempts, the recipe for these cake pancakes was finally there and I love them exactly as they are! With a lot of cocoa, creamy cheesecake and real vanilla ♥
