Chocolate custard muffins

I planned to try a chocolate soufflé this weekend, but I catched a mean cold (again). So I spend the whole saturday in bed, and sunday i was better, but not well enough for kitchen experiments. So I postpone the soufflé to the next weekend and choose a simple recipe instead.

I want to try the chocolate custard muffins from Dan Lepard for a long time. I just had no neutral oil, so I exchanged the oil for butter. But that did not spoil the result, the muffins are very fluffy.
