Hello chocolate lovers, I have the muffins for you!
These muffins not only have chocolate chips, but they also have some melted chocolate that makes them perfect for those who cannot get enough chocolate in their lives! I made this last night so they were just ready for breakfast and I left them in the oven all night (with the oven off, obviously) so they would stay nice and fresh.
So I used to have a bit of an obsession back in the day with Sainsbury’s chocolate chip muffins, I would and to be honest still probably can eat a whole package in one go (I know, gross), so I decided to make these to try and imitate them. Have I have to limit myself not to eat all of them? Yes, yes I have.
So as I said, I tried to make them even more chocolatey by adding some melted chocolate to the middle of the muffin. So basically adding one layer of muffin, a bit of chocolate with a swirl and then another layer of muffing with more chocolate swirl, and that on top of the chocolate chips!
The ingredients for these are simple: flour, baking powder, vanilla essence, lots and lots of chocolate chips, oil, milk, eggs, greek yoghurt and sugar.
I have been thinking about making muffins for so long and I finally decided to and to be honest, now all I want to do is to make more and keep experimenting with flavours. But for now, these are the ones I have made and I they are lovely!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Ingredients (makes 12 muffins):
- 120 ml of vegetable oil (not olive oil as it’s overpowering)
- 200 gr of sugar
- 250 gr of dark chocolate chips
- 120 ml of warm milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp of vanilla essence
- 157 gr of greek yoghurt
- 1 and 1/2 tsp of baking powder
- 260 gr of flour
- A pinch of salt
- Preheat the oven at 170 degrees celsius
- Melt 150 gr of chocolate chips and set aside to cool down slightly
- Mix the sugar and oil
- Add the warm milk and mix well.
- Beat the eggs separately and then add them to the mix. Add vanilla and mix it all together.
- Fold the yoghurt in until combined
- Add in the flour, the baking powder and the salt. I mixed everything with a spoon until this time, to do this I used a hand mixer as the flour may be a bit lumpy if you just use a spoon.
- Add in the remaining chocolate chips and mix slowly with a spoon. I left some chocolate chips aside to sprinkle them on top of the muffins.
- Let the batter rest for 5 minutes.
- Grease some muffin trays or put the muffin cases and fill them half way through, add a generous drop of the mixed chocolate and swirl with a toothpick or a thin knife. If the mixture is too white or not swirly enough, add a bit more.
- Add the remaining of the batter to the top of the muffin tray and repeat the melted chocolate swirling process.
- Add some more chocolate chips.
- Cook for 30 – 35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Let them cool down before eating (if you can!)
