Chocolate Muffins with Chocolate Chips

Yesterday, I made chocolate chip scones, and I took them to a family reunion, where every single one of them valiantly gave their lives for the greater good of the reunion attendees.  That left me, a chocolate-craving pregnant woman, without a chocolate-y baked good in the house.  Therefore, this morning, I decided I wanted a chocolate muffin with a dose of chocolate chips mixed in for good measure.  This led me to my ever-helpful Better Homes and Gardens Quick Breads Cook Book.  The book doesn’t actually have a chocolate, chocolate chip muffin recipe, but it does have a chocolate chip recipe that I altered to get these lovely, delicious, chocolate-y muffins.  (I have just started my second muffin, so I can truthfully declare them “Yummy!”)



  • 1 3/4 cups all- purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/2 tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup cooking oil or melted shortening


  1. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa.
  2. Make a well in the center.
  3. Combine egg, milk, and oil.
  4. Add liquid ingredients all at once into flour mixture, stirring just until moistened.
  5. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full.
  6. Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes.
  7. Dust the tops of muffins with powdered sugar.
  8. Makes 10-12 muffins.

  1. This baby is making you a food addict. The muffins sound wonderful though.

    • I’ve always been a food addict. It comes with being a Yarbrough. 🙂 But now I have an outlet to show it to the world, and I have the whole internet to find new stuff to make. Thank you for the compliment! I thought they were good.
