    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cocoa powder. Set aside.
    3. In another bowl, beat egg with fork. Add milk and vanilla, followed by oil. Stir well.
    4. Pour all of wet mixture into dry. Stir just until combined and no dry flour is visible. The mixture will be lumpy; do not over stir. Fill muffin cases. Press chocolate chips into the top of the mixture.
    5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until top springs back when pressed gently.


    If you want chocolate chips inside, mix them in the muffin mixture. Also, they may take a shorter amount of time to bake, so keep an eye on them.

    Very easy and quick to make. I used butter in stead of oil. At 135g light brown sugar it was not very sweet at all, perhaps a little more for most tastes. My young boys loved it, light and fluffy, absolutely fine for them.  -  11 May 2014
