Re: Muffins

Hi Paul. Welcome to the forums wave

Chocolate muffins:

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup oil

1 egg

Mix all dry ingredients. Add liquids and blend. Beat for 2 minutes on medium. Add the egg. Beat for 2 more minutes.

Bake at 350° F (170° C) .

Makes 12 muffins (bake for 20-25 min.) or
one cake in greased 9 inch square pan (bake for 40 min.)


You can also add chocolate morsels. Add just before baking wink
Or walnuts wink


I would be really grateful, if one of you had a recipe for fluffy blueberry muffins that is fruity, but does not use orange juice or zest (husband's allergic  sad  sad  ).

Re: Muffins

Double Chocolate Muffins

2 cups flour
2/3 cup baking cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda, pressed through a sieve to remove lumps
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 1/3 cups milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips. In a separate bowl, combine the liquid ingredients and whisk until smooth. Fold into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Don't overmix. Scoop the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with the remaining chocolate chips. Bake at 400°F. for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack before removing from the pan.

Blueberry Muffins

2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, washed
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add blueberries; stir to coat evenly. In a small bowl beat eggs with fork; beat in milk and melted butter. Add to blueberry mixture; stir just until blended (but make sure all egg white is mixed in). Use double paper liners in muffin cups and divide batter evenly to make 12 muffins. Bake in preheated 400° degree F. oven about 20-25 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool slightly and remove from muffin tins to cooling rack.

Options: Place sliced almonds on top before baking or sprinkle with sugar. Can also be made into a 9-inch square coffee cake (bake 30-35 minutes) or 36 miniature muffins (bake about 15 minutes).

Re: Muffins

Hi ya,
I regularly use the same recipe for muffins which uses sunflower oil instead of butter which makes then a lot lighter, however the recipe uses plain flour with 4tsp of baking powder. The only problem i have is each time they end up over flowing i have added less batter in the cases however they all rise to much. Any tips please.

Re: Muffins

I recieved a wonderful present a few years back from a close friend, who appreciates my food passion, though she doesnt share it (very fussy, no spices, not even pepper)

She gave me a book called The Muffin Book, with a 12 muffin baking tray & a huge supply of patty papers. thumbsup

The book has a savoury & a sweet section, plus a section on quickbreads.
