If you read my kitchen disaster rant, then you’ll know where these muffins came from. Yes. A cookie recipe. It’s a miracle they worked out, and tasted good, too. Maybe my kitchen disaster wasn’t so bad after all :)
Yields: 12 (this is minus the 6 tsps of batter I used for the failed cookies)
2 1/4 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees celsius.
Stir the flour, baking powder and the salt together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine the butter, vanilla and two sugars until creamy.
Add the eggs and beat until completely incorporated.
Gradually begin adding in the dry ingredients, beating well.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Fill your muffin tins with the batter (if you’re using silicone, don’t grease them).
I topped some with a chocolate button, too.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until it springs back when lightly touched in the centre.
Keep an eye out for part 3…. french chocolate tart, and how that horrid disaster might have worked out like these muffins did…. :)
