Chocolate Chip Muffins

Ok, so I have gone a little muffin mad just lately, but that’s because I’ve had two new different sized silicone trays to experiment with, but I promise to step away from the muffin tray for now and try some other bakes.

What you need:img_2684

250g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
75g caster sugar
50g butter
2 medium eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
250ml milk
175g milk or plain chocolate chips

What you do:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 200°c.  Lightly grease a 12 muffin tin or use paper muffin cases if you don’t have a silicone tray.
  • Mix the flour and baking powder in a large bowl and then add the butter in chunks, rubbing it into the flour using your fingertips until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the sugar and the chocolate chips.
  • In another bowl, mix together the eggs, vanilla essence and milk and then pour into the dry mixture and combine. Don’t overmix, it should be a chunky rough mix.
  • Share evenly between the tin or the paper cases.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes.chocolate-chip-muffins
  • Cool in the tray initially then on a wire rack.chocolate-chip-muffins

Until next time…Happy Baking!

    I would encourage anyone to have a go. I’m not very experimental and will follow the recipe to the letter, some I win, some I have lost badly! 😉

    You can never bring us too many recipes for muffins! 🙂
    Plus, you have to give those new trays a decent road test! x

      There is just so much choice and variation for a muffin…I could, quite probably, go on for months! 😉
