Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins

This is one of Nigella Lawson's seriously delicious yet perfectly uncomplicated recipes. They were a breeze to make and a huge hit with the sweets eaters of my family.

Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Muffins
1 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus more for sprinkling later
1 cup milk
1/3 cup plus 2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and fill muffin pan with paper liners. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Combine all liquid ingredients in a small bowl. Mix both together, keeping in mind that a lumpy batter makes the best muffins. Spoon batter into muffin cups and sprinkle chocolate chips over the top. Bake for 20 minutes or until the muffins are dark, risen and springy.


  1. My kids would totally love these. They look really good!

  2. They look great and sound easy to whip up on a whim. What kind of chocolate chips did you use? They look big in the picture but could be deceiving. My kids would definitely gobble them up.

  3. Susi, the chips are Ghirardelli. They are not pointy like typical chips, but rather flat little disks. And they are super, super yummy.

  4. Thanks so much. I love everything Ghirardelli for baking but have not seen those. I will have to keep my eyes open for them, they look great :o)

  5. Ah, chocolate and chocolate. One of the best combinations! :D
