Food from the Derb

When I was at K-State I really liked the food at the dining centers there.  It was so wonderful to go and just eat whatever you wanted at whatever time you wanted.  Now when I come home from work and stick my head in the fridge I think back wistfully to those days.

One thing that I really loved there was a delicious muffin that they had, not every day, and you had to be quick about grabbing them if you saw them…Chocolate Cappuccino Crumb Muffins.

Recently I discovered that they have listed some of their recipes on their website!  Hooray!  So you K-State residence hall alums, and those of you who would like to get a taste of some good dining center food, you can browse recipes here!

Here is the recipe for the muffins!

Chocolate Cappuccino Crumb Muffins

Ingredients for Muffins:
1 Cup + 2 Tablespoons Homogenized Milk
1/2 Cup Butter Melted
1 Egg, Slightly Beaten
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 Cups + 3 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup + 1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
2 Teaspoons Instant Coffee Powder
1/4 Teaspoons Salt
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
3/4 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Chocolate Chunks
Ingredients for Topping:
4 1/2 Tablespoons Butter
7 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
Blend together milk, butter, egg and vanilla extract. Set aside. Blend together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, instant coffee, salt and cinnamon. Add liquid ingredients to mixture all at once. Mix on low speed just to blend. Do not overmix.

Fold in mini chocolate chips and chocolate chunks. Portion into paper-lined muffin tins. Fill tins half to 2/3 full. Batter should yield 12 muffins.
For topping, make sure the butter is very cold and cut into chunks. Place butter, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in mixer bowl and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle over muffin batter.

Bake at 400°F. for 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of muffin comes out clean.

Yield: 1 Dozen
