Perfect for your Easter brunch: chick muffins

In a few days it’s already Easter, so we decided together with other Austrian bloggers to start a blogger parade for Easter. Our blog parade is filled with great ideas for Easter like DIY stuff and delicious recipes. However, we decided to share our beloved muffin chicks with you too.


What you need (for the dough):
4 eggs
150 g cane sugar
½ lemon
some rum
200 g carrots
250 g hazelnuts
100 g wheat flour
1 TS baking powder
What you need (for the decoration):
500 ml whipped cream
2 packages of cream stiffener
white chocolare
Mikado sticks
coconut flakes

That’s how you do it:
Seperate the eggs and whisk the egg whites up to firm peaks with a pinch of salt. Whip the egg yolk with sugar, lemon juice and some rum until foamy. Peel the carrots, grate them finely and mix them with the hazelnuts. Add the baking powder to the flour and mix it together with the carrot – hazelnuts mixture. Pre-heat the oven up to 180°C. Put the whole mixture into the muffin cups and bake them for approximately 20 minutes.

While the muffins are baking, you can prepare all the ingredients that you need for the decoration. Whip the cream until stiff and add some of the heated white chocolate. You can put the mixture into the fridge until you need it. Cut the mikado sticks into small pieces since they become the chicks’ eyes. It’s really important to wait for the muffins to cool down before you start with the decoration. First cover the muffin with a layer of whipped cream and put it into the coconut flakes. Then form the head with a piping bag filled with whipped cream. Use the cranberries to form a cockscomb (Yes- our chicks already have a cockscomb!) Put the mikado sticks carefully into the head as well as the peanuts.

The muffin chicks are not only a real eyecatcher – they are also very delicious!
