Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

So, I have a friend coming to visit over Memorial Day, and since she always drools virtually when I tell her I’m baking something (especially muffins) I asked her if she’d rather I make muffins or something chocolate while she was here. Her answer:

“Chocolate Muffins!”

I don’t actually have a recipe for chocolate muffins, so I went searching on the internet and eventually decided on this one: Nigella Lawson’s chocolate chocolate-chip muffins. There were a couple of substitutions, as usual; she called for semisweet chips, I used milk chocolate chips, and I just sprinkled however many chips I wanted to on top, rather than sticking to the quarter cup the recipe called for. Otherwise it’s as written.

1 3/4 C all purpose flour

2 t baking powder

1/2 t baking soda

2 T cocoa powder

3/4 C superfine sugar

3/4 C plus 1/4 C chocolate chips

1 C milk

1/3 C plus 2 t vegetable oil

1 egg

1 t vanilla extract

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, and 3/4 C of chocolate chips together. Mix all liquid ingredients together and pour over dry, stirring until just blended. Remember, batter should be lumpy! Spoon into muffin cups and sprinkle with additional 1/4 C of chocolate chips. Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes or until done.

I probably wouldn’t bother with superfine sugar next time. I’m not sure it added anything.
