Moist Chocolate Muffins (eggless)

Fed up with muffins bought at stores, i decided to try my hand at some home-made chocolate muffins. I have already achieved some proficiency with banana-walnut muffins, so i wanted to try chocolate muffins, but since I have several friends who would prefer it without eggs, I decided to try eggless ones. 


the ingredients are simple and are given below:

1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup chocolate - I used Cadburys cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk

The way I go about it is simple. Set the oven up at 180 degrees Celsius (pre-heat),  and get the muffin tray ready, by layering it with the paper cups.

Melt the butter, mix the butter, sugar, cocoa, vanilla and milk together. Sift the flour and baking powder separately onto a plate. Fold the wet and dry ingredients together. Fill the muffin cups till they are half full, and bake them for about 25 mins, or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out almost dry.

Word  of caution, do not mix (fold) the wet and dry ingredients and let them stand. They have to be transferred into the cups and baked immediately. I try and do it within 10-15 seconds.


  1. Beware! Baking is very very addictive.
