Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Muffins

I am a huge fan of Dorie Greenspan and have been since following Tuesdays with Dorie on some of my favorite blogs over the last few years. I thought I would try out this recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks, Baking: From My Home to Yours. 

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Muffins
Recipe from Epicurious/Dorie Greenspan


3/4 stick ( 6 tablespoons) unsalted butter
4 oz 60% Ghiradelli chocolate chips
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 375, and place rack in center of the oven. Fit muffin tin with 12 paper or silicon molds.

In a bowl over simmering water, melt HALF the chocolate and the butter. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Ina another bowl whisk the butter-milk, egg and vanilla until combined. Add the chocolate/butter mixture and the egg/sugar mixture to the flour mixture and mix together. Do not over-mix. Stir in remaining chocolate chips. Divide into muffin cups.

Bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes, and then eat while warm.

These muffins are delicious, moist, and filled with molten chips of chocolate. They are a cross between a muffin and a cupcake and could be eaten for dessert of for breakfast.

I recommend they be eaten warm, not HOT, warm. I think it is when they taste the best. 

Are you a fan of Dorie? What is your favorite recipe? I would love tho know what you have baked of if you have another favorite chocolate muffin recipe.

Have a great day!
