These cocoa muffins and Macadamia nuts are born as the most part of my sweets: a sudden desire and a short time available.

And what sweet does the emergency cover better than muffins? These are so greedy! A soft and moist dough rich in cocoa, and here and there little pieces of Macadamia nuts, with an almost melting consistency … They disappear at least two at a time, just to know.
The recipe is easy, just keep in mind a few simple tips to avoid to end with dry or chewy little cakes: do not mix too much the dough, even if there is some lumps of flour is not a problem; let them cool in the pan covered with a clean cloth; if you want to have a beautiful dome heat the oven to 190 ° C, bake the muffins and then lower to 180 ° C.
So there is no reason to wait, bake it and enjoy the wonderful smell that is released from the oven. And try to wait for them to cool before attacking them!
