1 August muffins with white chocolate

Desserts for the upcoming national day celebrations should of course be in our national colours. How about moist little chocolate cakes in red with white chocolate chips? Red and white, just like the Swiss flag.

This dessert calls for red food colouring. It’s available in specialist shops or large grocery stores. I always recommend getting colouring pastes or gels as a little goes a long way. Plus they give cakes a nice dense colour. Liquid colouring works too but it needs to be used more generously.

My junior drew little flags and I used glue, paper and toothpicks to turn them into miniature flags. So with very little effort you can make your own matching decoration.

You can use colourful paper baking cups but in this case I think the "boring" white ones are better as they go really nicely with this colour combination.

I would also recommend baking the muffins in a muffin tray as well as in the paper cases. This way, the little cakes stay a nice shape and rise instead of broadening out.

These muffins are nice and moist, not too sweet yet taste wonderfully chocolaty.
