How to Make Chocolate Muffins

Step-by-Step

  • 1Ingredients

    1 1/4 cups cake flour
    1/3 cup cocoa powder
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup sugar
    3/4 cup buttermilk, low-fat
    plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk, low-fat
    1/4 cup canola oil
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    4 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 2Cooking Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.

    2. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Add the sugar, buttermilk, oil and vanilla and stir to combine (do not overmix).

    3. Fill each baking cup 2/3 full. Bake until a skewer inserted into the middle of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Allow the cupcakes to cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the pan.

    4. When the cupcakes are cool, melt the chocolate over a double boiler. Let the chocolate cool until it thickens slightly. Using a spoon, drizzle the cupcakes with the melted chocolate. **This is optional and I skip**

    Makes 12 standard size cupcakes or 24 miniature cupcakes.
