Chocolate Chip Muffins

I tried this this week for the first time and while I think they're tasty, I also think they're lacking more of a chocolate "bite".  They'll have to have another go and either with more cocoa or more melted dark chocolate.  Oh, and the chips I placed on the muffin tops all sank in as they baked.  Can't remember if I've had that happen to me before.  Odd.  Although, it was a nice little surprise to bite into the muffin and catch a bit of milk chocolatey heaven.

Anyway, they looked really good...

The original recipe can be found here



  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips


    1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, beat the eggs, sour cream, water, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 325 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.


    I substituted applesauce for the oil and milk chocolate chips in place of the semi sweet.  These definitely need more than milk chocolate chips!  While the taste is nice, I felt like it could use more of a chocolate punch.
