Chocolate Chip Muffins (With A Dash of Cinnamon)
The weather turned a little harsh yesterday with the rain and the wind. Although it didn’t go on and on, the thought of having something nice and warm, a little moist, and a little sweet, made me look for ingredients that I might have kept and not used. Found a packet of chocolate chips at the back of my pantry and these were born.:)
80 grams butter
80 grams granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 &1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
100 grams chocolate chips
Melt the butter and let it cool.
Place the paper moulds in your muffin tin.
Sieve the flour, cinnamon and the baking powder. Set aside.
Mix in the sugar to the cooled butter and beat till the mixture turns a little pale.
Beat in the eggs one by one, whisking all the time..
Add the vanilla extract. Then fold in the flour mixture.
Lastly, add the chocolate chips. Fold in.
With a tablespoon, fill the batter in the muffin cases. This will be enough for 12 muffins.
Bake in a preheated oven at 175C for about 25 minutes or till a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Remove and cool on a wire rack. These taste good when still slightly warm.
