Double chocolate muffins

Double chocolate muffins

If chocolate had a Facebook account, our relationship status at the moment would be “it’s complicated.” Don’t take me wrong, I absolutely love chocolate, but for a long time I was an overly attached consumer. Then something I didn’t believe could happen occurred – I had enough.

Instead of triple chocolate everything I now prefer only double chocolate treats like these double chocolate muffins. Unbelievable, but true.

I am sure it is just a short crisis in our relationship and I will go back to triple chocolate soon, but at the moment this recipe works very well for me! What about you? Would you go for single, double, triple or quadruple(yes, they do exist) muffins/cakes?



1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sour cream or full fat plain yogurt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. In a medium bowl cream together butter, sugar, sour cream/yogurt, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time. Beat the mixture between each addition until just incorporated.
  4. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with the milk, in 2-3 additions each.
  5. Mix in chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  6. Spoon the mixture in muffin cups and bake for about 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
