The very minute I've seen Aipi's Double Chocolate Cappuccino Muffins,I decided to make it for my choco-savvy daughter.For I am not into chocolates and chocolate related products,it's still my baby steps here when it comes to choco-based recipes.This learning process is quite fascinating when I see the content smiles of my little one.Many thanks to Aipi for the recipe and the inspiration.
As on recipe,I took the freedom to omit the coffee flavour and instead opted for cinnamon.I am in love with this particular spice.And it has come out really well for me.Check it out !
