You can treat yourself and your dearest with this delicious little cake in about 40 minutes tops and the combinations are endless.

Recipe :

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups (230 g.) all-purpose flour

2/3 cup (60 g.) unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/4 cups (265 g.) light brown sugar

2 eggs

1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk

1/2 cup (113 g.) unsalted butter, melted and cooled

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup (170 g.) semisweet chocolate chips (keep a few to top muffins)

1 12 muffin pan – 12 muffin cups

Make the batter:

Preheat oven to 375°F - 195°C and line a muffin pan with muffin cups or butter cavities

Into a large bowl, sift or whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa and salt, add the brown sugar and distribute breaking the lumps

Into a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, melted butter, buttermilk and vanilla

With a rubber spatula, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until they are moistened, do NOT overmix

Add the chocolate chips and stir to distribute

Fill muffin cups with the batter, about 2/3 full

Add a few chocolate chips on top of muffins

Bake muffins:

Into the oven for about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of muffins comes out clean

Let cool for about 5 minutes before removing from pan

Let cool on a rack for about 1 hour before serving

Note:

If you do not have buttermilk on hand, just add a tbsp. of lemon or vinegar to regular milk and let stand for about 10 minutes before using

Really, the only important thing to know about making muffins: once you have added your dry ingredients to the wet, mix them delicately with a spatula, just until well incorporated. The secret to soft muffins is to not overmix.

Once you have found a recipe you are comfortable with, just use your imagination to bake endless combinations of delicious muffins.

Enjoy!
