I love, love, love me some chocolate. Today's recipe is one of the best muffin recipes I've found - they are absolutely gorgeous and brimming with chocolate chips. But before we get to those...
Have you entered to win Gooseberry Patch's new cookbook, The Harvest Table? My giveaway runs until May 30 at midnight, so be sure to do it before then. I am so excited to have the opportunity to share this book with a lucky reader!
Now, back to the muffins. :)
I found this muffin recipe on Tasty Kitchen. I was searching for a good chocolate chip muffin that would be quick to whip up and easy to take to get-togethers. I found what I was looking for and more! This muffin bakes up so beautiful and round that it's the perfect thing to make for company. But I really love how the breading just melts in your mouth leaving you with nothing but the chocolate chips melting on your tongue. Delicious!
One thing I've found is that this recipe only makes about 6-9 muffins, so double it if you are needing more.
To begin, mix up the dry ingredients.
Then, measure out a third cup of oil. Drop an egg into the measuring cup, and then fill the cup with enough milk to get it to the 1 cup mark. This equals to about 1/3 cup milk, depending on the size of your egg. Basically, you just want your liquid ingredients to equal 1 cup.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, and then throw in your chocolate chips. I've used regular chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, and miniature chips - tastes good any way you do it!
Fill your greased muffin tins about 2/3 full of batter.
Bake at 375 and then enjoy! Look how rounded they get!
