Every weekend I try to bake something delicious like muffins or cookies to put in our lunches and tummies for the week. This past weekend I made some delicious chocolate chip muffins! I was going to make some raspberry muffins, but I was missing a couple critical ingredients. My hubby loves these muffins and so do I! They are delicious with some butter and a cup of hot tea. These muffins are the perfect addition to a breakfast or brunch gathering or for a lunch box. They are super easy to put together and delicious. I got this recipe here.
I prefer to use mini chocolate chips in muffins (as well as pancakes) because I believe they distribute better throughout the muffin. I think the buttermilk really makes a difference in these muffins, and makes them moist and delicious. I made these muffins before using unsalted butter and I found that the flavour just wasn’t strong enough, which is why I used salted butter this time. These would be a lovely addition for a brunch, or an easy breakfast in bed for a loved one. I love them.
A classic muffin, easily made in your own home!
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup butter melted (I used salted)
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk (I made buttermilk/sour milk, you can use normal milk too)
- 1 tbsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used mini chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 425 and grease your muffin tins or use the muffin paper.
In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips. Set aside.
In a smaller bowl combine the melted butter, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla. Combine well.
Add to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Spoon mixture into the muffin tins. I filled my tins quite full and still had batter left over so made an extra 2 muffins.
Put the muffins in the oven for 5 minutes in the preheated 425 oven. After the five minutes turn the oven heat down to 375 and continue baking for 12-15 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean.
Let cool and ENJOY!
I love mine cut in half, heat up in the microwave for 10 seconds and smother with some butter.
