Chocolate Muffins

I am not sure where I originally found this recipe.

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup self-rising flour (we used all purpose flour without adding any baking powder as well, which we should have done)
  • 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (omitted because we use salted butter)
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 60g semi-sweet chocolate cut into half inch pieces (we used semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  1. Cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  2. Sift the flour, cocoa powder and salt (if using) together. Fold the dry ingredients into the butter, alternating with the milk.
  3. (The recipe says to half fill 12 muffin moulds with batter, place a few chocolate pieces on top then cover with rest of batter. Instead we mixed the chocolate chips in the batter and made 6 large muffins).
  4. Bake at 375F for 20 minutes (the large ones took closer to 30 minutes).

Chocolate Muffins

Verdict: Because we did not add the baking powder, these muffins did not rise at all. Despite being kind of flat looking, they had a nice chocolate taste to them.
