Scrumptious muffins with big, delicious chunks of chocolate. I added Chopped Strawberry and Ginger to half of the batter to create 2 lovely flavours.
- You will need:
- 250g plain flour
- 125g caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 150ml semi-skimmed milk
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 medium egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon chocolate extract
- 100g dark or milk chocolate chips
Place a roasting tray or any ovenproof container full of water on the bottom shelf of your oven when baking your muffins; it will help keep them really moist.
Hold your sieve high above bowls when sifting dry ingredients; this will make your muffins really light.
To help your chocolate chips keep their shape in the muffins, freeze them before using.
MOST IMPORTANT! Remember to only stir your mixture 15 times; this is the key to great muffins. Don’t be tempted to over-stir no matter what your mixture looks like.
