Speedy Chocolate Chip Muffins

Monday, 19 August 2013

It was my sister's AS level results day last week (I knew she would do well as she's a smarty pants), so I thought what better way to treat her than some freshly baked chocolate chip muffins. My only opportunity to bake the muffins was when my sister was out having her hair cut, so that's where they get their 'speedy' name from. I adapted this recipe from Channel 4 Food.

You will need:
250g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
4 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
100g caster sugar
1 large egg
250ml milk
90ml vegetable oil
75g plain chocolate chips (either pre-made or broken up yourself for bigger chunks)
Icing sugar for dusting

Pre-heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/Gas 5 and place 10 paper cases into a muffin tray. Mix together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cocoa powder and salt, stirring in the sugar and chocolate chips.

Beat together the egg and milk, adding the oil to mix before combining the wet and dry ingredients. There's no need to use an electric whisk or over-mix as you want the batter to still be lumpy. 

Spoon the mixture into the cases and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Your muffins will rise and crack with glimpses of the melted chocolate chips, mouth watering. Once the muffins have cooled you can either dust them with icing sugar or eat them straight away.

 The quickest thing I've ever baked from scratch!
