Chingwa means bread in native Zimbabwean. They aren’t cakes, they are muffins. Dead simple and quick lunchbox fodder for kids and adults alike. Yum!
Makes 20 medium muffins.
I make a batch and freeze for the week ahead. The gourmet boy insists they taste better defrosted. Shrug!
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1 1/2 Tbs cocoa powder
3/4 cup brown sugar
100g chocolate chips
3/4 cup milk
60 g butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
Sift flour and cocoa.
Add sugar and chocolate chips, stir until combined.
Add milk, butter and egg – fold until just combined.
Spoon into muffin tins or patty pans – about 3/4 full.
Bake at 180 C for about 15 mins – do the knife test, they are done when it comes out clean-ish.
