I understand that the main difference in muffins and cupcakes is that muffins have less sugar. Of course, cupcakes usually have frosting! But Nora does not think either is tasty unless it is chocolate. She helped me make these muffins starting with picking out a recipe, so she was doubly delighted to hear they were double chocolate!
Double Chocolate Muffins
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Line muffin tins with paper liners. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, sugar, and 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Place the remaining wet ingredients in a separate bowl and mix.
Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined , batter will be slightly lumpy. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full . Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are dark and spring back when touched on top.
