Autumn already and not feeling so well.
Not that I am going to miss summer. Especially this one. Difficult, hot and complicated. Very complicated... Anyway...
Autumn seems a bit "warmer" even though it did not start off nicely. Or I should stay it started off with closures and also new beginnings. The closures are still very tough.
"Hey Siri, how many days till Christmas?" 102 she replied. On Thursday we will be down to 99. Maybe I should start decorating for Christmas? Nah, will wait for November I think..
As about today's recipe I wanted to show something easy and quick but tastewise I wanted it to be complex and rather bitter for a dessert. Somehow to remind me the summer and beginning of Autumn.
So, I chose these muffin. Chocolatey but with 65% dark chocolate. Intense but a tad or more than a tad bitter. Dark and strong.
If you are not the adventurous type use a tamer chocolate.. maybe a milk chocolate if you have kids. But also know that it is an acquired taste. Once you try black you never go back is the expression? :-)
Oh! before I forget. Weather is still rather warm so what is the story with the dead leaves in the pictures? Well, we have those trees in the back yard that drop a lot of their leaves not in Autumn but in the beginning of the Summer.. SO, they are not Autumn like but I feel they worked.
Let's see what we will need for the recipe.
