My Heavenly Double Chocolate Muffins are just so easy to whip up. They’re fast to make, delicious and people LOVE them. 

They’re my go to when I want to make something relatively uncomplicated. Also when I’m short on time.

I brought my double chocolate muffins to a friend’s place for lunch and surprised another when I dropped off a few at his place. 

My friends told me they weren’t too sweet, were moist and loved how chocolatey they were.

Chocolate muffins

1. Try to use good chocolate

So I actually used chocolate bars instead of chocolate chips. I recommend that you do the same if you can.

Firstly, I cut the individual pieces with a knife and then roughly chopped the rest.

After you’ve filled the muffin tins to the brim with batter, simply pop a chocolate square on top.

You know, I think it looks pretty cute with the chocolate on top.

Alright, I know Cadbury isn’t top notch chocolate. But, it definitely tasted better than normal chocolate chips, it’ll make your double chocolate muffins taste extra special. 

2. Tips to follow when making..

1. Try not to over mix the batter.  If this happens, it allows the gluten in the flour to  develop. Your bake will become dense and chewy, not quite the texture you want in a muffin.

2. Fill the batter to the brim of the muffin tin, that’s how you can get that nice round muffin top. 

3. Serve the muffins warm, ideally 20 minutes after it’s been baked or zap it in microwave for 10-20 seconds. It’s way tastier when the chocolate is  gooey.

Prep Time5 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time20 mins

 2 cups plain flour
 ¾ cup cocoa powder
 2 ½ tsp baking powder
 ½ tsp baking soda
 ½ tsp fine salt
 1 ¼ cups white sugar
 2 eggs (at room temperature)
 1 ¼ cups buttermilk
 ¼ cup cooled melted butter
 ¼ cup canola or mild vegetable oil
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 200 g chocolate chips

1

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). Grease a muffin tin with butter or line it with paper cups.

2

Melt the butter in the microwave at a medium with lid on to prevent splatter. Leave aside to let cool.

3

Prepare the dry ingredients. In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the sugar and mix it with a whisk.

4

Prepare the wet ingredients. In another large bowl, whisk the two eggs together first, then add the buttermilk, oil, melted butter and vanilla extract. Mix the wet ingredients together with a whisk.

5

Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and then gently pour the wet ingredients into the middle. Slowly fold the ingredients with a spatula until the mixture has just combined. Add in the chocolate chips, be careful not to over mix.

Fill the muffin tins with the batter to the top, making sure the muffin don't overflow down the sides. Bake for 15 -20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the muffin comes out clean. Let cool before removing from the tin.
