Chocolate Chip Muffins

BUY COOKBOOKS ( PDF )

I absolutely love a good muffin. One of my favourite muffins was always white chocolate chip one, filled with a raspberry compote! It was sweet, tangy, fresh, and chocolatey all at the same time, almost like a jam doughnut crossed with a muffin.

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs room temp
  • 60 ml vegetable oil
  • 120 ml whole milk room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 g self raising flour
  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 80 g chocolate chips + some for the top

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/200C (fan) and line a muffin tray with 8 muffin cases
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, vegetable oil, milk and vanilla until fully combined, then set these aside
  3. In another large mixing bowl, using a balloon whisk, whisk the self raising flour and caster sugar until combined
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and fold them together using a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon until just combined. The batter should be nice and thick. Try not to overmix as this can lead to a tougher, denser muffin
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips (again, do not overmix)
  6. Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour
  7. Scoop the mix into your prepared muffin cases about 3/4 of the way full and smooth them out evenly, then sprinkle about 8 chocolate chips on the top of each
  8. Bake in the oven at 220C/200C (fan) for 7 minutes, then turn the heat down to 190C/170C (fan) and bake for a further 13 minutes until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Don’t open the oven whilst the muffins are baking
  9. Let them cool for 10-15 minutes before eating. Enjoy!
