These triple chocolate muffins are a real crowdpleaser!

Ingredients for triple chocolate muffins UK recipe:

275g self-raising flour

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

190g caster sugar

1 large egg

275ml milk (I used semi-skimmed – you can use Vegan alternatives)

2 teaspoons of baking powder

100ml vegetable oil

2 1/2 tablespoons of cocoa powder

75g of dark chocolate chips

100g of white chocolate chips (reserve these for after you have prepared the mix)

Iced and bare lemon and poppyseed muffins with a text overlay that says lemon poppyseed muffins - just like coffee shop ones!

Method for making these delicious muffins:

Preheat your oven to 200C (gas mark 6).

Fill your baking tray with cupcake cases.

Combine together the dry ingredients (self-raising flour, caster sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips).

In a separate bowl combine the wet ingredients (vanilla extra, bean eggs, milk and oil).

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Mix them until they are just combined, you don’t want to over mix this recipe.

Fill the cupcake cases until they are around 2/3 full.

Sprinkle on the white chocolate chips.

Place in the oven.

Bake for around 20 minutes, or until well risen and springy to the touch. I like to use a cake tester to make sure the batter is cooked through.

Leave for 5-10 minutes and then transfer to a baking tray until completely cooled.

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.

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 with self-raising flour?

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!

Fancy making some triple chocolate chunk muffins?

You absolutely can use this recipe! Change up the chocolate chips, for chocolate chunks, in the same quantities. I’ve personally used Dr Oetker chocolate chunks and found them to be delicious.
