Resting Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 12 muffins


  • 275 g self-raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract I use Nielsen-Massey bourbon vanilla bean paste
  • 190 g caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 275 ml milk I use semi-skimmed
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 100 ml vegetable oil
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 75 g dark chocolate chips
  • 100 g white chocolate chips Reserve these for after you prepare the mix


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C. 

    Fill your baking tray with cupcake cases. 

  2. Mix together the dry ingredients (flour, caster sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder and all of the dark chocolate chips).
  3. Mix together the wet ingredients in another bowl (vanilla extract, eggs, milk and oil)
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Mix together until it is only just combined. Do not overmix and do not worry if it is lumpy, this is normal!

  5. Fill the cake cases around 2/3 full, they will rise up in the oven. Sprinkle the white chocolate chips onto the top and then place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until well risen and springy to the touch. 

  7. Once you remove from the oven leave to cool for 5-10 minutes and then cool on a cooling rack.

Products I use when making my triple chocolate muffins:

I find a cake tester really useful for checking that the muffins are cooked throughout, although, if you want a gooey centre these the cake tester can help you check the muffin isn’t over baking! A good cooling rack is an essential for bakes really to avoid an over cooked outside.

Would you like to make triple chocolate muffins with a gooey centre?

Pop some whole chocolate chunks within this mixture and remove it from the oven a couple of minutes earlier, personally I found 15 minutes worked best for gooey triple chocolate muffins!

This recipe is really simple, it’s frugal and best of all it tastes delicious!

Want to freeze these chocolate muffins?

This is really simple! Follow the instructions above, freeze once they have cooled completely and they’ll be good for at least a month. When you want to enjoy one just pop it on the side for an hour to defrost or you can re-heat it in the microwave and add some nice ice cream to the top!

If you’re a lover of a sweet treat, and want something a little faster to make than these muffins why not try my 3 ingredient mug cake. It is super simple, takes under 2 minutes to make, from start to finish, and will be the perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
