Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

My daughter and I worked together to get the taste right, even my son, who normally doesn’t like sweet things finds them yummy !

Makes about 16 muffins

  • 150 g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 2  and 3/4 cups self-raising flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Sift together flour, cocoa powder and baking soda, set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer, fitted with paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix
  5. Add half of the flour mixture, then half of the milk and mix.  Then add the other halves and mix all together, scraping down sides of bowl
  6. Stir in chocolate chips
  7. Pour batter in lightly greased muffin paper cups to about three-quarters full
  8. Bake for about 20 minutes
  9. Let cool in muffin trays for about 2 minutes, then transfer to rack and cool completely

Batter is slightly runny and lumpy.  Check if muffins are done by putting a toothpick in the middle, it should come out clean.
