Chocolate muffins topped with lime cream cheese and mascarpone frosting.


  • 2 cups of flour

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder

  • 1/2 cup of sugar

  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla flavored sugar

  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

  • 100g of dark chocolate (or chocolate chips)

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil

  • 1 cup of milk

  • 1 lime

  • 150g of mascarpone

  • 250g of cream cheese

  • 80g of icing sugar

  • Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Separately mix the wet ingredients (egg, oil, and milk) in another bowl and stir until combined. Then mix both mixtures together until smooth.
  • Chop the dark chocolate (medium-sized pieces will be the best) and add to the mixture.
  • Preheat your oven to 200°C and prepare your muffin baking tray. Place the muffin paper forms into the tray, and add 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture into each of them. Leave approximately 1cm free from the top of the paper form. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Once baked set aside to cool down.
  • Mix the mascarpone with cream cheese and the icing sugar. Add the lime zest and the lime juice and mix well. Decorate your muffins with the cream and serve 🙂 Enjoy 🙂
  • PS: the muffins taste the best on the second day 🙂
