An easy chocolate muffin recipe made with self-rising (self-raising) flour
Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (110 grams) self rising flour
  • 3 tablespoons (14 grams) unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 grams) granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons (71 grams) salted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 oz (84 grams) evaporated milk (1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips**
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line 6 muffin cups with large paper liners
  2. Mix flour, cocoa and sugar in a mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk butter, egg, evaporated milk and vanilla in a separate bowl.
  4. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon the mixture evenly into prepared muffin cups. Put muffins in the oven on center rack.
  5. Reduce heat to 350 F.
  6. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out with most crumbs. Cool on a wire rack
Notes
**These muffins aren’t extremely sweet, so they really do need the chocolate chips UPDATE: I tested these again and added 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. With the extra 2 tablespoons, the muffins were sweet -- not overly so, but more dessert-like. If you know you like sweet muffins, you may want to add the extra brown sugar. I wouldn't add over 2 T.
