"Best-Ever" Chocolate Chip Muffins

"Best-Ever" Chocolate Chip Muffins

Sift together and set aside:
2 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder

In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment in place, whisk together on
high speed until foamy and slightly stiffened.
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix together in a measuring cup with a spout:
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Slowly add the oil and butter mixture to the egg mixture in a slow stream as the
mixer continues to whisk.

Mix together
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Add slowly to the mixing bowl continuing to mix but at a reduced speed.

Fold in the dry ingredients by hand with a rubber spatula being careful not to over mix.
Don't worry about lumps in the batter, they are fine. When the dry ingredients are
almost incorporated, gently fold in  1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips.
(I use 3/4 cup white chocolate and 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips)

Spoon batter into well greased muffin tins, filling them to the top.

Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until a wooden skewer
inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Here's how mine looked ....


  1. It's a good thing your delicious looking photos, don't add to my ever-increasing waistline and butt!

  2. I usually give most of it away immediately, or freeze it because if it's lying around, I tend to pick. The people at Roger's office love it--he usually brings in treats at least once a week.

    I LOVE to bake though!!

  3. Love reading your blog Kathy! Keep it up the pictures and the backing ideas are great.

  4. Is that "A" for Adams??????

    If so---hi and thanks!!!!

    Email me

    If that "A" is not for Adams....still thanks--ha ha :o)

  5. These look great! I just made a batch of banana chocolate chip. Yesterday I made a batch of blueberry (with sour cream and lemon). My baking doesn't last too long as there's 8 of us coming and going. I don't eat much of it as I am trying to stay gf. I suffer if I do:(

    Like reading your blog!

    1. Thanks Barb---your blueberry muffins with sour cream and lemon sound delicious---I'd love the can email it to me if you get a chance at:

  6. If I wasn't off the flour and sugar I'd inhale these babies in a minute! They look scrumptious!

    Maybe I should make them for the grandchildren. It probably wouldn't kill me if I licked the bowl :)

  7. Ha ha---Jen, you are my kind of gal!!!!!

    How's the new eating regime coming---I hope the change in diet has had positive effects.

  8. Hi Kathy,

    It was the A for Adams.....LOL Hope all is well. I can't find anyone's e-mail adress but if you are in Gander give me a call sometime. Would love to get together. I am going on holiday's Aug 25-Sept 3 so anytime after that I would love to hear from you. I hope things are ok and your mom is doing well.
