Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe

Recipe Details

This is the base recipe I most often use (without the vanilla and chocolate chips). It’s quick, easy and very versatile. I don’t use chocolate chips, I just chop some good cooking chocolate.

The dry ingredients are all put together in one bowl and mixed together. The wet ingredients are mixed together in a measuring jug, and then it is all mixed quickly together and as the last thing the chocolate is put in.

Distribute in 12 muffin forms and bake for 20 minutes in a 200 C oven (170 to 180 C in a fan oven).
