I have a confession to make...a client ordered a dozen chocolate muffins the other day and I didn't have time to test a recipe, so I had to send out something I wasn't happy with. I never send out anything unless I am 100% satisfied with the product, but the other day, I was in such a rush to get a breakfast order out the door, that my little heavy lumps of muffin had to do. They were edible, and tasty. Just not something I was proud of. I want people to be talking about my food for months, and how it was the best they had ever had. That's what keeps people coming back, right. After my embarrassing delivery, I sat down and vowed to find / create the perfect recipe. I need a recipe that is quick to put together, always works, and is chocolatey rich and delicious. DELICIOUS, I say. Chocolate Muffins Makes 12 regular sized muffins Recipe from King Arthur Flour
2/3 cup dutch-process cocoa
1 & 3/4 cups flour
1 & 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons white vinegar
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a large bowl, mix together the sifted cocoa powder, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.
In a large measuring cup, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and vinegar. Add wet ingredients, along with the butter, to the dry ingredients, stirring to blend. Just make sure everything is combined well.
Scoop into 12 muffin cups, bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and leave for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
PS - the muffins I sell are based on this recipe, just a bit more decadent!
Welcome to my love of food blog! I am a stay-at-home mom right now (staying home and going crazy should be the correct term) so I started this blog to share with you my love of food. I try to make everything myself, but occasionally, I will find something interesting in the stores or at the market that I will feel compelled to share.
I love to experiment, but most of all I love to make delicious and beautiful food. I hope you will be inspired.
