Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    cup brown sugar, packed

  • 1/4

    cup sifted cocoa powder

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    cup Egg Creations™ Original, well shaken

  • 3/4

    cup each milk and prune purée (see below)

  • 1/2

    cup melted margarine

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/4

    cup unsalted peanuts, chopped

  • 1/4

    cup bittersweet chocolate, chopped

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, prune purée, margarine and vanilla until smooth. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in egg mixture. Stir just until a ragged batter forms. Divide batter between 12 greased muffin tins. Sprinkle each muffin with an equal amount of the peanuts and chocolate. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until muffins bounce back when touched lightly. Let cool completely. Prune Purée: Pour ½ cup boiling water over ½ cup lightly packed dried, pitted prunes; stir, cover and let stand for 10 minutes. Purée prunes and any unabsorbed liquid in a food processor or blender until smooth (or, substitute prune baby food for the homemade purée).
