 We found the perfect recipe for the day – chocolate chip muffins in the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. The photograph of the muffins looked too good to pass up. And since they were muffins, we didn’t have to bother with making a ganache for the icing. Plus they looked wonderfully moist for a muffin, and naturally so because the recipe has more butter than muffin recipes usually have. I’m not complaining.

I tossed everything together in a jiffy (that’s why the lack of in-process photographs) and in twenty minutes I had warm, super moist muffins, oozing with melted dark chocolate chunks. Bliss.

Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe

Adapted from: The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook (such a cute book!) (USA | UK | India)

Yield: 12 muffins


  • An interesting point worth nothing is that the method is somewhat a cross between a cake and a muffin – it begins with creaming the eggs and sugar together, much like we do in cakes. It even calls for adding the dry and the wet ingredients alternately like a lot of the cake recipes on this blog. As for the muffin angle – it includes stirring in the butter right in the end.
  • The muffin’s pretty dense, so you can safely fill the muffin cups more than 2/3rd full.


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup / 200g sugar
  • 1/4th tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup / 120g flour
  • 6 tbsp / 36g cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3rd cup / 160m
  • l milk1 stick + 3 tbsp / 150g butter, melted
  • 4 oz. / 115g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
