Chocolate Chip Muffins

IMG_7122

There is nothing quite like the heavenly aroma of freshly baked muffins wafting through my home on a lovely spring morning.  The birds are chirping, the sun is shining and as if that wasn’t enough reason to be happy….. but wait….. behold a warm fresh out of the oven chocolate chip muffin  – and the day just got even better.  Okay….I’ll admit I am a sucker for most sweets – especially anything containing chocolate. :)  Of all muffin varieties chocolate chip are my children’s favorite.  Which means I most certainly have to oblige them in making these sweet little confections from time to time.

Muffins are so easy to make in a relatively short time.  There are only a couple things you really need to remember while making muffins which includes:  using  enough fats/liquids to make the muffins tender and moist (I like to use buttermilk,butter, oil and sometimes sour cream) & to be sure you have the right amount of leavening agents (baking powder, and baking soda) starting to bake the muffins for a few minutes at a higher temperature than you finish them to ensure that lovely domed muffin top. Oh, and be sure not to overmix the batter.  So, top of the morning/muffin to you, and happy baking!

 

Ingredients:                                 Yield:12 regular size muffins

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1-1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

*Sugar for sprinkling on top if desired

Slowly fold in the dry ingredients to the wet. Mixing just until combined.
