Chocolate is my son’s best friend. Whatever I baked that has chocolate in it will definitely please him more than anything else. However, I don’t bake with chocolate that often as I don’t want to over-indulge him with it.
These double chocolate muffins are something that my son has been looking forward to all these while. As his final exam was just over recently, I thought it would be a good time to make him this sweet treat as a way to “distress”. He was very excited and eager to learn how to make them.
I showed him how to measure both dry and wet ingredients, and the right way to mix them. When the batter was ready, I said, “Let’s fill up the muffin cups. And, they can go straight to the oven. ” My son was puzzled and asked, “Don’t you need to proof the batter first?” “No, dear. Making muffins is a lot easier and quicker than making bread.” I replied. He was so amazed and told me that he planned to make his own muffins soon. Is it a good news?
My little helper had problem spooning the batter into the mini muffin cups. He spilled some batter on the cups and created quite a mess. It was my mistake for not using a piping bag. Lesson learned!
After 15 minutes of baking, I let the muffins sit inside the oven for another 3 minutes. They turned out beautiful with a nice domed top and no overflow. Taste wise, they were delicious, very chocolaty (which comes from cocoa powder and chocolate chips) and have the right sweetness. These double chocolate muffins are truly every chocolate lover’s dream!
When I shared them with my friend, she had mistakenly thought they were steamed muffins. She never expected baked muffins to have such a soft and moist texture. She was even more surprised when I told her how quick and easy to make, and no electrical mixer is needed.
I had baked these muffins twice so far, and they had disappeared at a rate faster than my previous muffins. These muffins can be kept at the fridge for 2-3 days, or frozen for future consumption. As for mine, they never made it to the freezer!
