Belated Recipe Round Up: Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins
These are really tasty muffins. They aren't quite as cakey as the bakery muffins, which we think is preferable, but they are tasty and moist.
1 3/4 cup pastry flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
2/3 cup whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease 24 standard muffin cups (and/or line with foil muffin liners) well and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together pastry flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract, and mix well, leaving the batter a bit lumpy. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop into muffin tins, filling about 2/3 of the way up the sides. Bake in preheated oven for 15 - 20 minutes, until they are firm in the center and the tops bounce back when pressed lightly.
Cool in tins on a rack for about 5 - 10 minutes, then remove and allow to cool completely. Or just eat them warm and melty.
