    Thanks to global marketing efforts, Valentine’s Day is celebrated all over the world. In Turkey, Valentine’s Day is called “Sevgililer Günü, which translates into “Sweethearts’ Day”.

    While we are getting on for the day,here is the right recipe for love and affection, enjoy it!

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 T. cacao
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 75 gr butter
  • 1/2 cup creme fraiche (or vegetalcrem da montare kre torre ??? ????????? ????????)
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 50 gr chip chocolate or chopped  bitter chocolate
  • Whisk  eggs and sugar. Add butter and beat it. Sift together dry ingredients, add to egg mixture and mix thoroughly until it is smooth. Finally add chocolate drops.

    Line a muffin tray with paper muffin cases and pour each case half of the muffin mixture. Put 1 t. of Nutella for each muffin and pour the rest of the mixture to the cases.  As the Nutella will be in the middle of the mixture, when cooked it will be a wonderful happiness. But don’t fill the muffin cases completely, because it will rise!

    Bake in 150° C pre-heat oven for 30 minutes. Makes dozen.
