Here is a basic chocolate chip muffin recipe to get you started , chunky chocolate and blueberry muffin variety below to make it more interesting.
There is no doubt; just about everyone loves a good old chocolate chip muffin. You don't need to stop off at the side of the road to have one of these or get out the plastic knife and fork if you are travelling. They are just so convenient and can be just the thing to fill the gap. However, there is nothing worse than a chocolate chip muffin recipe which is heavy and feels as though it has been on the shelf for a few days.
Even though one of these may just have come out of the oven, if you haven't got the right quantities of flour or liquid then it just won't be the same.
How easy was that! Many people think it is all about the size of the muffin and that is the only thing that counts. If you think bigger is better, then you can always experiment with this by doubling up. This is a very basic recipe, but it is up to you what you want to do to make it that much more special. We also like to make a nice topping just to finish it off. This could be a ganache or a contrast between white and dark chocolate. Don't forget about bite-size muffins either. These are a great for a snack or to put in your child's lunch box as a nice surprise.
Here is another variation, using another recipe. It is also simple and it is also tasty. You can also use white chocolate for this recipe just for a change. Here we are going to add in nice bits of thick, chunks of chocolate, but you can stick to chocolate chips if that is what you would rather prefer.
Serve the muffins slightly warm.
There are many more recipes like this. You don't just have to use plain old chocolate chips. Combining them with something else that goes well can add a lot of interest. Think of putting in some nuts or something else that will add texture. A cappuccino muffin is great with a little espresso spread on the top.
