double mocha chocolate chip muffins

I am not a big fan of heavy and dense muffins.

So I am always on the look out for new muffin recipes. 

When I find one that I really like, well, I share the recipe with you!

And today, I am sharing this fabulous recipe I found.

These muffins are tender. It is almost – almost! – like eating cake.

But in a muffin form. :)

At home, I generally bake alone.

I love baking alone – my own time and target and since only I know what I am doing, no one gets in my way.

The thing about baking alone, though, is that I have only one pair of hands.

So sometimes it can be a bit tricky because I need someone to hold on to a bowl or a whisk while I am performing another task concurrently.

This is where the Staybowlizer comes in handy!

Having a Staybowlizer is like gaining a third hand. Instead of using a damp kitchen towel, which doesn’t really stop the bowl from shifting anyway.

A staybowlizer stops the bowl from moving – there are two ways to use the Staybowlizer. One is by using its primary orientation (with the logo facing up). This cradles the bowl and supports it fully.

The second way is by flipping the Staybowlizer so the logo faces down. By exerting pressure downwards. the device’s lower flange will collapse and a suction-lock is formed between the bowl, device and surface.

You can even work with hot liquids or food then as the bowl stays stationary!

feature-3

When I was first introduced to the Staybowlizer, I was skeptical but once I started using it, I really couldn’t understand how I’d cope without it for so long!

Let me show you how to make these yummy muffins.

In a medium bowl, combine the wet ingredients – egg, yogurt, milk, vanilla extract, coffee and oil – until combined. IMG_0291 IMG_0293

Set this aside.

IMG_0295In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients – flour, sugar, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

IMG_0305

Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl containing the dry ones.

Stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.

Do not over-mix. Over-mixing results in tough muffins.

And you really don’t want that.

Scoop the batter into muffin liners.

Bake at 200°C for 20 minutes. 

Do not over bake the muffins. The residual heat will continue to cook the muffins.

Transfer the muffins onto a wire rack and cool completely. (Of course if you can’t wait, you can grab a muffin and tuck in now!)

The muffins can be stored in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.

Enjoy!
