Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe

Muffin addicts know there is little better than a good chocolate chip muffin recipe.

Trivia: "Muffin" is derived from the French "moufflet". I'm told that moufflet means soft when applied to breads.

Tip: Everything is better when you use good quality chocolate. When you're talking about computers, they say garbage in, garbage out. Same thing applies to cooking.

Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe


3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 egg
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Tip: Increase the amount of chocolate chips and nuts to make your muffins even better.


Heat oven to 400°F. Spray the bottoms of 12 medium muffin cups with cooking spray or use a nonstick muffin pan./p>

Beat the egg, milk and melted better together. Dump remaining ingredients in all at once, and mix only until the flour is moistened. Do not overbeat. The batter should still have lumps

Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Tip: If you tip the muffins out of the pans promptly, the crust on the sides and bottom will be crisper.
