These Double Chocolate Chip Muffins are the real thing. Full to the muffin top with chocolate these babies are so damn good. I made them without expectation and I cannot express how uplifted I was by the end of it all.
Good Chocolate Cake is such a many splendid thing. Right there I fell in Chocolate Love. It's a brownie hit without the fudge, a chocolate fix without the fuss. But most of all they just made me glad.
Double Chocolate Muffin Recipe
As are all the best muffin recipes, this is a simple combo of wet and dry ingredients....simple as.
- I put all of my dry ingredients into a free standing mixer but any large mixing bowl will do.
- In another bowl or jug I whisk together the liquid ingredients. It is always wise to be careful and not overwhisk a muffin mix and this one is no different.
- Just brief a mix as is possible between wet and dry to make all the dry ingredients disappear, followed by another cursory stir to incorporate all the dark chocolate nubbly bits.
- I do make a point here of using the best quality chocolate that I can afford. For me that is Green and Black's 70 % Cooking Dark Chocolate. I also chop/cut it quite finely so that most of the pieces actually melt into the crumb. It is this that gives it such an effortless chocolatey depth.
- I also like to use these greaseproof fancy paper cases. They look good but also make a brilliant lining for your muffin tin.
- Paper cases always look a bit inadequate I think against the robustness of a muffin and if I try to grease the tins themselves it is never quite foolproof when it comes to releasing the muffins from their confinement. So I'm loving these muffin wrappers.
- I made nine muffins out of this mix. They were suitable muffin size too having nothing mini about them at all.
- I baked them at 180 C for about 25 minutes.
- They lifted effortlessly out of their beds and cooled quickly on a wire rack.
- Usually muffins are best eaten on the day of baking and I would think this is the case here. It's not a hardship.

Double Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 300 grams granulated sugar
- 100 mls vegetable oil
- ¼ tsp salt
- 150 grams dark chocolate chips cooking
- 284 mls buttermilk
- 280 grams plain flour
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 80 grams cocoa powder
- 1 ½ tsps baking powder
- ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
- Preheat your oven to 180 C/160 C fan. Put your muffin cases into your muffin tray.
- Place all your dry ingredients in a free standing mixer or large mixing bowl. Whisk the wet ingredients together until completely blended in a bowl or jug. Add the wet to dry and mix until you can't see any dry ingredients left in the bowl. As soon as this happens stir in the chocolate chips.
- Place the mixture as evenly as possible into the muffin cases. Mine weighed about 130 grams each
- Bake for approx 25 mins. I do recommend an oven thermometer. Mine tells me that my oven is often nowhere near the temp it should be. The trick is to not overbake these. You want them a little moist still. If you're not sure then insert a cocktail stick and if it comes out just a bit crumby/sticky then it's done.
- Cool on a wire rack.
