    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to its highest setting; the temperature will be reduced when muffins go in. Prepare your muffin tray by lining with muffin cases. Set aside.
    2. In a bowl sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and bicarb soda. Set aside.
    3. In another bowl put all your wet ingredients; sour cream, oil, eggs, milk, vanilla and chocolate extracts then whisk well.
    4. Sift all the dry ingredients again into the bowl with the wet ingredients. When sifted add chocolate chips then fold mixture 15 times only.
    5. Spoon mixture into muffin cases so they are each 3/4 full then place in the oven on the middle shelf. Reduce temperature to 190 degrees C and bake for 25-30 minutes until the tops are firm to touch.
    6. Let the muffins sit in the tray for 1-2 minutes after taking them out of the oven. Place them on a cooling rack for 10 mins and then serve still warm.

    Soft Muffin Tops

    I like my muffin tops quite soft so while they are cooling I put them in a sealed container to 'sweat'. This keeps the muffins nice and soft and really moist.

    They were easy to make and looked delicious but tasted weird. Like there was too much baking powder or bicarb. Does it really need both?  -  29 Apr 2012  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
