For 9 muffins (7 centimeter diameter at the top, 4 centimeter diameter at the bottom, and 4 centimeter tall) or 12 small-sized muffins (6 centimeter diameter at the top, 4 centimeter diameter at the bottom, and 3 centimeter tall), you will need:
  • 240 grams of flour
  • 11 grams of baking powder (1 packet)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 25 grams of cocoa powder
  • 150 grams of sugar
  • 180 grams of chocolate chips
  • 235 milliliters of buttermilk
  • 100 milliliters of canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 15-20 minutes*

Start by pre-heating your oven at 205 degrees Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit).

In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, and sugar together.

Add the chocolate chips to the dry mix and stir together.

In another bowl, mix the buttermilk, canola oil, egg, and vanilla extract.

Pour the wet mix slowly to the dry mix, and stir together.

Slightly oil your muffins trays, and add the batter into them.

Bake the muffins for about 15 to 20 minutes. Make sure to check at 15 minutes the inside of the muffins by poking with a knife. If the knife gets out clean, the muffins are baked. If the knife gets out with some uncooked batter, let them bake a few more minutes.

Once baked, let the muffins rest until serving time.

As a suggestion, you can serve the chocolate-chocolate chip muffins with a delicious vanilla cream or a cardamom cream.

*Note: For the small-sized muffins, don't forget to readjust your baking time to 12 to 13 minutes.
