Chocolate muffins with raspberries

Hello everybody! It's time for another of these posts with something I've baked. Today I've made some chocolate muffins with raspberries in them. The topping is just an ordinary creme cheese frosting. For once I actually decided to write out the recipe, something I forget most of the time. But I thought ahead and remembered to do that this time! :)

Chocolate raspberry muffin, 15 muffins

Ingredients
2 eggs
100g melted butter
1 cup caster sugar
1½ teaspoon vanilla sugar
a pinch of salt
4 tablespoon cacao powder
3/4 cup of flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup raspberries

How to do it
1. Turn on the oven to 200°C.
2. Melt the butter and let it cool.

3. Whisk the eggs and sugar until it's fluffy.
4. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Sift in the cacao powder.
5. Mix the dry ingredients with the egg and sugar.
6. Fold in the raspberries.
7. Add the melted butter to the mixture and fill up 15 muffin cups with the mixture.
8. Bake for around 15-20min.

Cream cheese frosting

Ingredients
1½ cup powder sugar
100g (soft) butter
150g cream cheese
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar

How to do it
1. Beat the butter until smooth and gradually add in the powder sugar and vanilla sugar.
2. Add the cream cheese and mix until the mixture is smooth.
3. Put the frosting in the fridge for at least 1 hour before piping it onto your muffins. (You have to wait until the muffins are cooled before piping or the frosting will melt.)
