Weekend almost over - time flew by! Had my office Christmas party on Friday and then yesterday night, had Ben's Christmas party. Oufffff - I am tired!
That didn't stop me from baking today! Wanted something easy (didn't want to spend all afternoon in the kitchen!) to bake - so went looking to one of my favorite baking sites.
annies-eats - her recipes are great and her pictures make me want to try everything on her blog!
Chose annies' chocolate chip muffins. Haven't tasted them yet - ate way too much all weekend - but will probably tonight for dessert!
Chocolate Chip Muffins
Yield: 13-14 muffins (I got 15 muffins)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
12 tbsp. unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup milk (used low fat)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 13-14 muffin wells with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir together with a fork. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Beat in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl between additions. Mix in the vanilla until well blended. Add half of the flour mixture to the bowl and mix on low speed just until incorporated. Add the milk and mix until combined. Mix in the rest of the flour mixture, beating just until incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips using a rubber spatula.
Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin liners. Bake for 21-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer the muffins to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
