A quick, simple and chocolatey recipeby Michelle Medford
This recipe is a modification on Food Network chef Nigella Lawson’s recipe. Yes, this version is sweeter, chocolatier and moister, so of course you know what that means: It’s delicious. (And you can head over to our Health & Wellness section later for tips on how to work it off.)
What you’ll need:
1 ¾ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (3 tablespoons if you like it chocolatey)
1 cup sugar
1 cup chocolate chips (plus 1/3 cup more for sprinkling)
1 cup milk
1/3 cup and 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon salt
What to do:
- Combine dry ingredients except chocolate chips: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, sugar and salt.
- Combine wet ingredients separately: milk, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla.
- Mix wet and dry ingredients together until completely combined.
- Add chocolate chips (except 1/3 cup). I’ve divided the mix in two to make half with semi-sweet chocolate chips and half with white chocolate chips.
- Spoon into muffin cups.
- Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of muffins.
- Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 20 minutes, or until muffins rise and darken
