I need to stop baking - that would help my weight loss... but I love to mix stuff together!
I usually have 1 or 2 muffins in each batch I bake... but I bake a lot!! These muffins are not Weight Watchers by the way! LOL!
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
makes 12 muffins
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons best quality cocoa powder
3/4 cup superfine sugar (used a little more than 1/2 cup)
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips, plus 1/4 cup for sprinkling
1 cup milk (used low fat)
1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, sugar, and 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips into a large bowl. Pour all the liquid ingredients into a measuring jug. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, remembering that a lumpy batter makes the best muffins. Spoon into the prepared muffin cases. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips on top and then bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are dark, risen and springy.
