double chocolate chip, fudgey in center, crisp on top, moist, delicious muffins.
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS
2 c. flour
1 c. cocoa powder (I use hersheys)
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs, plus one egg yolk
1 1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 1/2 c. sour cream
1 Tblsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
preheat oven to 375. if you are not using simply baked muffin cups (i only use these for baking now) then grease 12 cup muffin tin or line with liners. but trust me, order yourself some simply baked products and your entire baking experience will change.
in bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. in separate bowl, beat eggs and yolk on medium high until a little frothy. about one minute or two depending on your mixer. as you are beating the eggs, slowly pour in sugar. then slowly drizzle in oil. then sour cream and vanilla (this last batch i forgot to add vanilla and guess what? i swear i didn’t notice.. so if you are out of vanilla… as i usually discover half way into making cookies… it’s ok).
then add the dry ingredients by spoonful. slowly. it will fly everywhere if you dump in all at once. i tried this once for you. don’t repeat my mistake. ha. after all is incorporated, fold in chocolate chips. then scoop with small ice cream scoop into simply baked muffin cups. fill then all the way to the top. place cups on baking sheet and bake at 375 for 10 minutes. after 10 minutes, turn oven down to 350 and bake for another 10 minutes.
the original recipe calls for putting chocolate chunks and sparkling sugar on top before baking. since i’m usually cutting calories where i can, i skip this process. really, tracy…. you make double chocolate chip muffins and think skipping this step makes them better for you???? yes i do. thank you for asking.
