  • 285 g /10oz self raising flour
  • 55 g /2oz cocoa powder
  • 225 g /8oz soft , dark brown sugar
  • 85 g /3oz melted butter
  • 175 ml /6floz milk
  • 80 ml /3floz greek yoghurt
  • 125 g /5oz dark chocolate chunks
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 85 g /3oz blackberries

To decorate

  • Extra greek yoghurt and a handful of blackberries


  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F
  • Line 2 muffin tins with paper cases (I used one 12 hole pan and one 6 hole pan)
  • Sift the flour and cocoa together into a large bowl
  • Stir in the sugar
  • Make a well in the centre
  • Whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, yoghurt and vanilla extract
  • Pour into the well and fold in gently with as few strokes as possible
  • Stir in the chocolate chunks and the blackberries
  • Spoon the muffin mix evenly between the paper cases
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 - 25 mins until risen and a skewer inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
  • Serve warm as they are or cold with a blob of greek yoghurt and a blackberry on top


These muffins will keep well in a cake tin for two or three days - if they last that long!
