How To Prepare Chocolate Chip Muffins


Hello food lovers! I just got this new recipe Ill like to share. Well, it may not be really new but its new to me. Chocolate chip muffins are delicious treats that are great for breakfast or even as dessert after dinner. They are the perfect muffins for true chocolate lovers, as they are chocolate flavored and also loaded with chocolate chips. Trust me, for a rich and satisfying treat, make a batch of chocolate chip muffins and enjoy them when they are still warm or at room temperature.

Here are ingredients you need to make your own chocolate chips at home:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 large egg

And here is the method of preparation:

1.  Turn the oven up to 400 degrees and wait for it to preheat completely. Use waiting time to make the muffin batter.
2. Mix the dry ingredients; flour, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Stir all the ingredients together with a large spoon until they are all mixed together.
3. Break the egg into a small bowl and use a fork to mix. Make sure that the yolk and the egg white are completely blended.
4. Mix the liquid ingredients; whisked egg, milk and oil in a large bowl and whisk the ingredients together until they are all mixed.
5. Pour the mixed dry ingredients little by little into the mixed liquid ingredients and stir continuously. Stir until all the ingredients are combined. Make sure not to over-stir, as this can change the consistency of the muffins.
6. Grease the muffin pans using butter or vegetable oil or insert muffin paper or aluminum wrappers into each pan. Greasing the pan ensures that the muffins wont stick to the pan after they've baked. Using muffin wrappers lets you skip the process of greasing the pan and ensures that the muffins will come out of the pan easily after they are baked.
7. Pour or spoon the batter into the muffin pans. Smooth the tops of the batter with a spoon if they're uneven on top. You can also hold the muffin tin in each hand and shake it gently side to side to make sure that the batter lays flat in each pan.
8. If you wish, sprinkle some chocolate chips and sparkling sugar on top of each compartment of batter. This will give the top of each muffin more texture and sweetness. You can skip this step if you want a more consistent texture for your muffins.
9.Put the muffin tin in the oven and bake for 18-22 minutes. After 18 minutes, poke one muffin with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, take out the muffins. If not, keep checking every minute until the toothpick comes out completely clean.
10. Take the muffins out when baked and wait for it to cool. Even if you want to enjoy the muffins warm, wait for a few minutes before taking them out of the muffin pan. Waiting for a bit helps the muffins to solidify and come out of the pan easily. If you used muffin wrappers, just lift each muffin out of the pan by the wrapper and place them on the cooling rack.
11. If you want to eat your muffins while they're warm, take the muffins off the cooling rack and enjoy. If you prefer room temperature muffins that are slightly firmer, wait until they have completely cooled and enjoy with a chilled drink or beverage. 
NB: To prevent the muffins from getting stale, store uneaten ones in an airtight container.
