Since childhood, chocolates and ice-cream could never win my heart. At times, I might take a bite or two from a dark chocolate or white chocolate. On the other hand, the husband can survive on chocolates for days. And the funny thing is that I love chocolate cake and the husband doesn’t like chocolate cake. How weird is that! 🙂
When my friend Sandra sent me the post, I was thrilled to see these mini cakes. They are filled with all yummy goodness and shaped to perfection.

Sandra @ Sandra’s Easy Cooking
Tell us a little about you and your family ?
I am mom of three adorable and funny kids who are foodies just like me and a wife of an amazing husband who is making me laugh every day for the last 12 years and who is also my main tester. I came to US almost 14 years ago from Southeastern Europe, better known as a “Balkan” or formerly called “Yugoslavia”.
Besides cooking and photography that I am drown to, I love to pencil draw in my spare time, at the same time listening to loud music and I do sing when nobody is around. 🙂
Why the name ‘ Sandra’s Easy Cooking’ ?
I went through many names, and this one just stuck out:)) I enjoy cooking, but don’t like to stand on my feet in the kitchen for long period of time, I mean who does? So I am trying to prepare and cook meals in short period of time, without loosing taste of homemade cooked meal. Cooking is fun and should be easy. if you follow your instinct that easy part will come naturally. I guess that is why I named it, when I looked at the bigger picture.:)
How is the experience of blogging been so far ?
My experience blogging has been amazing..I can’t complain at all because I have talk to so many talented and creative people, received heart warming emails and comments through out this year that only gave me encouragement and support to go further.
What an honor to guest post at this beautiful food website. I adore Kankana and her amazing recipes, mouthwatering photos, sense of humor and interesting stories in every post, that I can actually relate to so many.
While she is on vacation enjoying herself, I will share one of my recipes here today, and what better way to start than with chocolate. Ah that irresistible chocolate!:)
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp. baking powder
- 1/2 cup Rolled Oats plus 3 Tbs. For sprinkling the muffins
- 1/2 tbsp. baking soda
- 2 Tbs. best quality cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil plus 2 tbsp. For greasing the muffin pan
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, sugar, chocolate chips and oats into a large bowl.
Pour all the liquid ingredients into a measuring jug.
Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, remembering that a lumpy batter makes the best muffins.
Spoon into the prepared muffin pan. Sprinkle the remaining oats on top and bake for 25 minutes or until the muffins are risen and springy.
Thank you Kankana so very much for inviting me to guest post. It was truly pleasure and honor for me!!!!
