Serves a Crowd

Chocolate-Curry Buckwheat Muffins

Author Notes

I had been debating about this chocolate-curry flavor combination for a while before I actually dared to try it.

When we first tried them, I gave my husband three guesses as to what the secret ingredient was. First guess: clove. Second: cardamom. He got it on the third. These are slightly spicy, very perfumed muffins. And the curry isn’t overwhelming. Deliciously aromatic! —Holly
