  • 50 grams (1.8 ounces) sugar
  • 150 grams (5.3 ounces) mayonnaise (non-salted)
  • 150 grams (5.3 ounces) milk chocolate
  • 4 grams (0.14 ounces) baking powder
  • 50 grams (1.8 ounces) raisins

  • Mixing Bowls

    Use different sizes for mixing liquids and dry ingredients separately. Get non-slip ones to keep your kitchen neat and tidy.

  • Electric Mixer

    An electric mixer is crucial for whipping the ingredients smoothly. Consider one with various speed settings for better control.

  • Spatula

    A silicone spatula works best for scraping every bit of batter and cream from your bowls without scratching them.

  • Muffin Pan

    A standard muffin pan is perfect, but you can use silicone ones for easier removal and cleaning.

  • Piping Bag

    For a professional-looking finish, piping bags are essential to pipe the chocolate cream neatly over the muffins.

  • Oven

    Preheat your oven for consistent heat distribution, ensuring your pastries bake evenly.


Step 1

Step 1: Whip the eggs with sugar until light and fluffy. Ensure the mixture is pale and doubles in size for best results.

Step 2

Step 2: Melt the milk chocolate and fold it into the egg mixture along with the mayonnaise. Incorporate gently until well mixed.

Step 3

Step 3: Add the flour and baking powder and mix until just combined. Avoid overmixing to keep the pastry light.

Step 4

Step 4: Stir in the raisins evenly throughout the batter. Lightly coat the raisins in flour to prevent them from sinking.

Step 5

Step 5: Bake at 356°F (180°C) for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Check at the 15-minute mark to avoid over-baking.

Step 6

Step 6: For the chocolate cream, whip the cream cheese and whipping cream together until smooth and homogeneous. Ensure the cream cheese is at room temperature for easier mixing.

Step 7

Step 7: Melt the milk chocolate and fold it into the cream cheese mixture. Allow to cool slightly if too warm to avoid melting the whipped cream.

Step 8

Step 8: Pipe the cream over the cooled muffins. Use a star tip for a decorative touch.

Step 9

Step 9: For the decor, use berries and fresh sage or any toppings of your choice. Get creative with decorations; edible flowers can also add a nice touch.

Looking to make this recipe gluten-free or vegan? No problem! ✨

Gluten-Free Version: Substitute the regular flour with an equal amount of a gluten-free flour blend. Ensure all other ingredients like baking powder are also certified gluten-free.

Vegan Version: Replace the eggs with a flaxseed egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water), use vegan mayonnaise, and substitute the whipped cream and cream cheese with plant-based alternatives. For the chocolate, opt for dairy-free milk chocolate. You’ll still enjoy a deliciously creamy pastry without compromising on flavor. 🌱


  • How do I know when the pastries are done baking?

    Insert a toothpick into the center of a pastry. If it comes out clean or with just a few crumbs, the pastries are done.

  • Can I use a hand whisk instead of an electric mixer?

    While it's possible, using a hand whisk might require more effort and time to achieve the same smooth texture.

  • What’s the best way to melt the chocolate for this recipe?

    You can melt chocolate using a double boiler or microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between to avoid burning.

  • How far in advance can I make these pastries?

    You can make them a day ahead. Just store them in an airtight container at room temperature and refrigerate the cream separately.

  • Can I double the recipe?

    Absolutely! Just double all the ingredient quantities. Ensure you have enough equipment and space to handle the increased quantity.

  • How can I achieve a smoother, shinier chocolate cream?

    Ensure all your ingredients are at room temperature before mixing. This helps them blend better and results in a smoother cream.
